Inside Robin Thicke & Paula Patton's Struggle With Son Julian
And to think they were childhood sweethearts! Paula Patton and Robin Thicke are apparently a far cry from a happy family since their split, and their son, Julian, is not happy.
The actress accused Robin of physically abusing their son after Julian told school staff that his father spanks him a lot.
And it seems the allegations may be accurate. According to reports, Paula’s nanny told a 911 dispatcher Julian acted differently with Robin.
She told cops they need “to intervene” while the 6-year-old waited with his mom in Malibu park and was unwilling to see his father.
Media reports claim a judge granted Paula a domestic violence retraining order and temporary sole custody of Julian on January 26 after Paula accused her ex-husband of physically assaulting her, cheating on her multiple times, and being addicted to cocaine.
One of Paula’s statements read: “Given Robin’s history of hitting me with a closed fist, pushing me onto the ground and kicking me. I had no doubt he was capable of hitting Julian, particularly after having used cocaine, alcohol or whatever other substances with which he is presently involved.”
