It was a surprise to some, but no big shocker to most when Robin Thicke and Paula Patton announced plans to split in February, shortly after Miley Cyrus twerked on him at the MTV Video Music Awards, and then caught in a selfie cupping a fan’s butt. Many blamed Robin for the separation, and even he has come out and said that he was ” trying to get my girl back.” He told his audience at a show in Fairfax, Virginia, shortly after the split that “she’s a good woman,” before dedicating his hit song Lost Without U to her.
Paula opened up a little bit to Vanity Fair about her ex-partner of 20 years, who she met at an 18-and-under nightclub when she was 15 and he was 14. Before their first kiss, he sang Jodeci’s “Forever My Lady” to her, which he sings about in his song, “For The Rest of My Life.” Obviously, the serenade worked, because they lasted off and on for 20 years aftewards, and had a son, Julian, 4. “He wasn’t my first kiss,” Paula said, “but he was my first lots of other things.” The actress didn’t openly say if the two would get back together. All she said was, “We’ve known each other since we were teenagers. All I can tell you is there’s a deep love there—always was, and always will be.” Hmm….
Paula also spoke on her start in film. She actually first worked behind the scenes in film production after graduating from college. “I felt uncomfortable in my own skin, so I liked the other side of the camera,” the actress said. “It took until I was 27 to say, ‘You only have one life to live, so you might as well go and see if you can act.’ ” In her first year, she landed a part in Hitch, which starred Will Smith. Her latest project has Paula in Vancouver filming Warcraft, based on the online game series. “I’ve never been big into video games,” she admitted. “But the Warcraft script reads more like a complex, epic novel.”
I’m really hoping that Paula and Robin work things out! However, there’s probably more to the story than we as fans and readers see. It would be nice to see them reconcile, because I love seeing their chemistry and blatant love for each other, but, sometimes, it doesn’t work out. For now, Paula’s focused on her son and acting. For her, I might just check out that Warcraft film!
