Child Services Involved In Robin Thicke & Paula Patton’s Custody Battle After He Reportedly Spanked Their Son ‘Really Hard’!
Robin Thicke’s divorce drama with Paula Patton is far from over! Many of us thought the topic of the two’s issues were long over. However on Thursday, TMZ revealed the former flames are in a contentious custody battle over their son, Julian.
During the initial divorce filing, the singer and his ex had agreed upon joint custody of the six year old.
Paula says in her declaration, the day before Julian told the school, he told her that Robin spanked him “really hard.” He demonstrated and hit Paula on the back so hard she said, “ow.” Julian then said it was actually worse than that.
A school official also submitted a declaration saying Julian told her Robin frequently “punches” him very hard.
Robin says in legal docs, “On a very rare occasion and only as a last resort, I will use light spanking, but it is consistent with the law — open hand on the butt. This is the type of discipline to which Paula and I agreed during our marriage.”
There’s also a declaration from a nanny who claims she has seen Robin smoke marijuana on several occasions in front of Julian. And there’s this: Paula says at Julian’s kindergarten graduation last June, Robin showed up drunk at 8:30 AM and was “hooting and hollering and making inappropriate jokes” in the Catholic church.
Robin claims this is all about his decision to block Paula from attending his dad Alan’s funeral last month. He says in docs, “Paula did not have a positive relationship with my father and often made negative comments to me about my father. As such, she was not welcome at his funeral.”
Sources connected to the case tell us there was a hearing Thursday morning and the judge denied Paula’s request to limit Robin’s joint custody and also a request for drug testing.
As for DCFS, we’re told social workers have interviewed Julian twice and also interviewed Paula. Robin was also interviewed on Thursday afternoon.
We will keep you updated on how this case turns out.
