Robin Thicke Loses Custody of His Son After Paula Patton Accuses Him of Domestic Abuse
Thicke’s custody of his 6-year-old has been temporarily removed, according to TMZ. In addition, the “Blurred Lines” singer is ordered to stay away from Patton’s mother until further notice.
In documents filed by Patton, she claimed Thicke hit her with a closed fist then pushed her onto the ground during an argument, saying he had also threatened to “bash my f**king head in” multiple times over the course of their marriage. She alleged that her former spouse had a serious cocaine problem and once called her from the road when he was having sex with another woman.
Patton also claimed Thicke lost his temper in February 2013 when he brought their son to visit her while she was filming Warcraft. In the filing, the actress said that Thicke was supposed to take care of the boy on morning, but started screaming in front of them that he wanted to “f**king sleep … Who do you f**king think you are not letting me sleep!”
Currently, the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services is investigating Thicke after Julian reportedly told his school officials that he was beaten by his father on more than one occasion. Thicke since denied punching Julian, though he admitted to lightly spanking the child on rare occasions.
A source close to Thicke also denied the allegations of abuse, telling TMZ, “If these multi-year-old allegations were true, why is she only raising them now in the midst of a custody dispute where she’s the only one violating the judge by denying Robin access to the boy?”
Thicke, 39, and Patton, 41, parted ways in 2014 after nine years of marriage. At the time, the couple said it was a mutual decision to separate.
