Robin Thicke: Paula Patton ‘has been my rock, my muse, my inspiration & I love her’

Well, this is interesting timing for a dual cover. Here’s the question I have: do you consider Robin Thicke and Paula Patton a “power couple”? As in, do you think that Paula and Robin are more than the sum of their parts and that they have an added cache because of their marriage? I don’t. I think Paula is a C-list actress and Robin has a decent music career and one major hit song. He’s bordering on A-list – she’s not. But being married to each other doesn’t real bring anything more to the table for either of them, really. The most interesting part of Robin and Paula as a couple is the rumor that he fools around and she lets him. Oh, and the rumor that they do threesomes. But still, with this Prestige cover, they’re trying to make this “power couple” thing work:

It can’t be pleasant to be made aware of an image of your husband groping a young woman’s bottom doing the rounds on Instagram, but actress Paula Patton has brushed this very thing off. A representative for the 37-year-old said that the 2 Guns star and her singer husband Robin Thicke, 36, were ‘unconcerned’ about the image and a subsequent claim from Lana Scolaro, 20, that the pair had also kissed passionately.

Now, the man behind the controversial Blurred Lines has revealed that he doesn’t know if he’d be ‘alive in some ways’ if it wasn’t for the teenage sweetheart he married.

He told Prestige magazine: ‘I don’t know if I would still be alive in some ways if it wasn’t for Paula. She’s been my rock, my muse, my inspiration and I love her. The whole way.’

His wife was also interviewed for the glossy, which features the LA born and raised couple on the cover, and she reiterated just how solid the pair – who have a three-year-old son Julian together – actually are.

She told the publication: ‘We’re best friends. We laugh a lot. But that’s our down time. We do the things you’re supposed to do, like work out – blah, blah, blah, boring, boring. We love to travel together and travel with our child. Get out of the house. Because our house is a mad house. We don’t have normal jobs. So it’s always a work house. Robin makes music at home and my job when I’m not on set always brings people into our home.’

Paula says that: ‘I’ve been there for his down moments and he’s been there for mine. Life is full of peaks and valleys. Robin has always been a great person to remind me to celebrate now. Even when it looks like I’ve got a role but don’t know for sure, he’s like, ‘Let’s celebrate!’ Robin got me ready for every single acting audition I’ve ever done. We read lines together when I’m working on movies. He’s my coach. I listen to every song he writes and help however I can, and I’ve written songs with him.”

[From The Daily Mail]

Yeah, about the story that Paula was just feet away when Robin was trying to bang Lana Scolaro, Paula’s rep told Life & Style: “It’s just a girl looking for some attention. Paula and Robin aren’t concerned.” Do a cover about THAT. I mean, I guess it’s none of my business if Robin and Paula have an open marriage, but it becomes my business when your husband’s side-pieces start selling their stories to the tabloids and when you and your husband are selling a certain loved-up image, you know?

    I feel like they have the dirtiest, wildest sex imaginable.

  2. Tessabelle says:

    He’s gross.
    She’s clearly got no self respect.

  3. Mindy says:

    Swingers can and do have happy marriages. I dont get the whole if-your-relationship-doesnt-conform-then-you-must-be-miserable thing.

      • Green Eyes says:

        Off topic Nev, but u sooo made me laugh!! Saw 2 friends this weekend first time in 30 yrs. we laughed the night away catching up & talking about high school & when we were kids. All night we laughed about phrases or things we used ALOT back then…. WORD was at the top!! Thanks for making my morning! <3

    • mommak918 says:

      My husband and I have some friends who have an ‘open’ marriage. What happened was the husband, who was a playboy/party boy got caught cheating. His wife is gorgeous and very sexy/sensual. No one understood why he’d stray. Well, after that…to keep him happy, they sorta became swingers. I think they dabbled in that for a few years (while both under heavy drinking/coke use) and then came out on the other side….(still party but not as hard) and I don’t think they swing anymore.

      To me, he still is a dbag. But he plays up their lovey marriage and so does she every chance (and Fb status) they can get.
      I feel they must still be very much in love….but I couldn’t imagine sharing my husband and dealing with that to keep my husband happy. But, to each their own….

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Exactly. Their marriage, their choice.

      • Sarah says:

        Their choice to be swingers while deep in a cocaine-booze lifestyle too?? Something that is done as part of a drug habit can’t be healthy. And the lovey-dovey family image on FB? Pretty fake if coke was a “member” of the family too.

      • Mel says:

        Plenty of monogamous celebrity couples are nose deep in a mound of cocaine regularly. Whats coke got to do with this? And just because they are polyamorous doesnt mean they are happily loved up too. The two arent mutually exclusive.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        “Their choice to be swingers while deep in a cocaine-booze lifestyle too??”

        YUP. STILL their choice.
        Doesn’t affect your life in any way, shape or form, just like gay people getting married or other *untraditional* marriages, so why exactly are you so upset about it?

      • Mari says:

        Well, since you can’t tell simply by looking at someone you meet in a bar if they have chlamidia, gonorrhea, HPV, hepatitis B, HIV, syphilis, or any of the other 25 diseases contracted through sexual activity, unless these women go through tests and come out clean, I’d say both R and P are going to get burned, the way gonorrhea burns, if they haven’t indeed already been. I don’t judge their lifestyle, but it is in fact more likely to affect/infect them sooner or later.

      • mommak918 says:

        I know it’s their choice. I simply said I couldn’t imagine sharing my husband. And like I said, I do feel they’re in love. I know when he was caught cheating it was a heart breaking ordeal for her. But, maybe she enjoyed bringing something else to the bedroom for them both?

        They’re still married (no children) and by public view…still seem very happy. And have made it through everything. I don’t personally know if they swing anymore…bc at the time they were I was dating my husband and they tried to recruit him and some other fellow party friends for fun.

        I mentioned the cocaine bc at the time he was a big party guy while he cheated…so, I like to put partial blame on his coke use. I also think the heavy partying helped ease everyone into swinging.

        And yesss, this is just one swinging couple…not all! Just shared bc I wonder if Robin wanted to stray and Paula allowed it (or opened her bedroom to it) to make her husband happy.

        In marriage, we all do things to make our spouse happy that we may not enjoy…like letting your husband wakeboard on the weekends, or watching car restoration shows….just some couples do other things!

      • Green Eyes says:

        Amen Sista;). How ya doing Original Kitten?

      • LoveGossip says:


        That holds true for every sexually active single person. Thats what condomes are for gal.

      • Blanky says:

        What makes you guys think that swinging=unsafe sex???? If anything couples that are open with one another about extra marital activity are safer. They are more likely to be logical about sex partners and take precautions. Couples who are hiding affairs (over 60 percent of all married men have cheated!) tend to view preparation, and by that I mean condom purchase and wearing, as premeditation. It triggers guilt so they omit that step. That by the way is why the STI rates in some States are highest among married people.

      • TherapyCranes says:

        @Mari Are you kidding me? Why do people keep bringing up stds or aids? You can get sexually transmitted diseases by only having one or two sex partners. If you are sexually active there IS a chance of being infected. That’s why you need to use protection.

      • Grant says:

        Um, condoms are NOT 100% effective at blocking the transmission of certain STDs like herpes or gonorrhea, honies. For instance, if someone has a herpes sore on an area that isn’t covered/protected by a condom (which can happen, and frequently is the case) simple skin-to-skin contact is enough to transmit the virus. We can try to glorify swinging all we want to but to act like there isn’t an intrinsic risk involved in having sexual intercourse with people you don’t know would be ignoring reality.

    • j.eyre says:

      I concur. Only two people in a marriage need to decide on the rules.

      • Kcaia says:

        My friends parents were swingers, and it supposedly saved their marriage from the brink of divorce when my friend was little. To me they seemed very close, and I was over at their house all the time, but I can’t ever even remember them disagreeing. They were quiet ppl, but like I said I was always over. Fifteen years later they’re still together and very happy together and in life, or so it seems.
        They are an accountant and a gas station owner and a normal middle class family in every other way.

    • SouthernGal says:

      I have many friends who are/were swingers. They have happy healthy marriages. For people to judge them because their marriage is somewhat unconventional is crazy. What may work for one marriage…may not work for another. They’ve been together as long as me and my husband (met him when I was 16) and trust me you do whatever it takes to keep you marriage together.

      Also, people forget there is a lot more to marriage than just sex. If they are freaky and that is what keeps it spicy…more power to them.

    • SouthernGal says:

      And FYI….swingers practice safer sex than any single person would ever do. You have to protect your spouse at all times. No excuses!!!!

      • Cazzee says:

        Swingers actually have lots of STDs, it’s just that they’re mostly middle class and get treated at their private doctor’s office rather than the public health clinics so it doesn’t get reported. Only a tiny subset of swingers use condoms, but I sure wish everyone would!

      • J.Jay says:

        People, please… look at Blanky comment above.

        Having a traditional marriage and blindly believing that your husband behaves CAN BE as dangerous as being a swinger and go unprotected. How many married men have hidden affairs out there?

        In my country, the AIDS rates between married women who trusted blindly in their husbands are REALLY, really high. Not having an open relationship agreement means nothing. Only that if you get something from your partner, you’ll have him to blame.

        The truth is, everybody should use condoms, everytime, just it.

    • carol says:

      yep. As long as they’re happy and it’s all consensual then it’s totally fine

  4. Esmom says:

    Yeah, I’m not buying whatever it is they’re trying to sell. “Trying” being the operative word. Seems like they’d be better off keeping quiet about whatever really goes on in their marriage instead of working so hard to convince us how great it is.

  5. whatthehell456 says:

    I’ve known quite a few couples that have practiced open marriages, in fact friends of the family have just celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary. If Robin and his wife do in fact have an open marriage, then neither one are going to care if so called “side pieces” are selling their stories to the tabloids, or who judges them. If they hare legitimately happy with this arrangement, then who cares?

  6. Rux says:

    I think he groped that chic but more of a “caveman” thing with no real ‘intent’ behind it, that’s why I believe these two are unconcerned about this chic. I also do believe this girl is looking for attn and making sheet up; just look at the girls face in the photo….famewhore much?

  7. aims says:

    My question is; Does she know he’s going to cheat, so she’s like let’s make this an open marriage so I don’t look like a fool? He just oozes sleazy, dirtbag to me.

  8. brin says:

    The douchebaggery is triple strength in this one.

  9. Jayna says:

    In the previous Robin Thicke thread I posted an interview yesterday where he said they have a passionate marriage, fight a lot, and gave the reasons why he wouldn’t have an open marriage, that it would open the door to what he didn’t want and he is jealous of her on set with men but trusts her. She had previously given an interview about long ago when they were dating, I think, where she staked him out thinking he was cheating and he wasn’t. So Paula doesn’t sound like she’s all chill with him groping someone. So I still don’t get how she was so down with him bringing the young bimbo along to that other party and ignored him going off with her. Strange.

    “On If Paula Ever Gave Him A Pass In Their Marriage To Hook Up With Someone Else
    She didn’t have to. We had some great party years, she knows how to party. She might tease the idea, but I know she doesn’t want that. She may make it seem [like that], but I know she doesn’t want nothing like that.[...]She’s got to star with all these good looking men in the movies and powerful actors and stuff, so I don’t want to open that door to making any of that okay.”

    • O'Angie says:


      An open marriage is not the same thing as swinging though. They may have an established rule that both parties must agree with and participate in all activities; ie. threesomes. Anything outside of said agreement is cheating. So their statements on “no cheating” might still stand.

  10. Nicolette says:

    Mmmm. She’s his rock and his muse. Does he feel that way as his hand is on another woman’s ass?

  11. Ag says:

    He looks like a sleazy douchebag. I have nothing re her.

  12. Anmelt says:

    Man, when I see his face I just see the dad from Growing Pains. He looks so much like his pops.

  13. Susei says:

    Mr. Douchbag alias One hit wonder go away please

  14. Jen says:

    Up until Blurred Lines came out Paula was WAY more well known than him. She’s definitely B-list, she was in the latest Mission Impossible movie!

  15. Frida_K says:

    Paula Patton looks like Jennifer Lopez and Michelle Rodriguez’s hitherto unknown and recently discovered love child.

  16. Adrien says:

    “But still, with this Prestige cover, they’re trying to make this “power couple” thing work…”
    Prestige HK. They’re probably considered A-listers in Asia.

  17. jessica says:

    Robin Thicke had a solid music career prior to Blurred Lines. I actually really liked his style when he first came out. remember the song Lost without You…it was classy with a great vibe. Paula was actually in his video. he’s changed and not in a good way. gone down the river in a Douche Canoe. also, I really think these two get high together frequently. they are on SOMETHING…I’ve seen them a few times where their behavior/demeener was questionable. her in particular on an awards show not too long ago where she was presenting and couldn’t stop laughing and was totally out of it. even the co-presenters with her on stage were staring at her like, wtf??

  18. Jennifer12 says:

    ….. “I just f— around on her, that’s all.”

  19. Just Me says:

    Robin Thicke is just gross to me. Gross. Everytime I look at him, I see his Dad. And Jason Seaver getting his perv on is just the grossest of gross.

    But his wife is actually not just a C list actress. She’s very smart – graduating college Magna Cum Laude & has a previous respectable history *behind* the lens.

    As for the marriage – not my cup of tea – but if it works for them, and they’re both happy – more power to them. Different strokes for different folks.

  20. Bijlee says:

    Paula looks awful in her vmas dress. The hair, the dress, it just looks bad. S He doesn’t look good with them.

  21. Sarah says:

    Random question. If Paula Patton is a C-lister, is Jenna Dewan a D-lister?

    • fork says:

      Semi-related: I totally wanted to believe that Channing & Jenna have threesomes like his character did in Magic Mike. I realize this is probably completely untrue, but watching the movie I was like, “Please let this part be based on their marriage…”

  22. Ctkat1 says:

    Her smile really bugs me- I can objectively look at her and see that she is very attractive, but something about her big smile drives me crazy. I’m shallow, but the site is celebitchy!
    As for their relationship- who knows?
    A year or two so there was a reality show about these poly amorous people and their relationships, and it’s a complicated dynamic. I realize that polyamory is different from swinging, but the issues of shared intimacy/jealousy seem pretty similar. Some people are able to do it, some aren’t. I could see enjoying casual sex with more than 1 person at a time (threesome) but I couldn’t see myself being in a committed relationship and then bringing another person in for sex/being okay with my partner having casual sex. If I’m in a relationship, I want & expect monogamy.

  23. Kcaia says:

    Why does everyone think Robin just came out, or at least with hit music? He was the first caucasian r&b singer to get a #1 hit single with Lost Without You, since Elvis. He’s had other popular singles with lots of airplay. Even if you don’t like r&b, they play these songs on soft listening stations, like in reception areas or stores. I’ve been reading about them as a couple in magazines like People for YEARS… and Im not a fan of either of theirs really. But the gossip mags have always took note of them as a couple, now I guess just more readers are curious about them bc of the VMAs drama.

  24. Violet says:

    I remember reading an interview of Paula’s not too long ago where she admitted to trying to catch him cheating and was relieved she couldn’t find any damning evidence. So, if she’s now — off the record — cool with him screwing around, I’m guessing it’s because she’s afraid he’ll leave her.

    Based on his songs and his videos, I think he’s major douche and I have no doubt he’s trying to nail all the young girls he can before his 15 minutes of fame are over.

  25. Relli says:

    Is it weird that every time I read an interview about him I hear Dr. Seaver’s voice in my head reading the content?

  26. snappyfish says:

    I have no idea who he is but he seems douchey and his wife looks like she’s on steroids.

    yes, I AM grumpy today.

  27. mouse says:

    That cover is some bad Whitney Houston wig photoshop hideousness on her head. Someone needed to get some blurred lines all up on that. Looks like she was cut out and stuck on the backdrop from another magazine.

    Also – “meh” is my response to their marital choices. Not my place to judge.

  28. Nan St. George says:

    To the posters who wrote that they think Robin is a douchebag because of the Blurred Lines lyrics and video, please listen to some of his other songs like “All Tied Up,” “Dream World,”Miss Harmony” “Cry No More,” ” Can You Believe” etc etc. This man has written some of the most beautiful,sensitive songs of the past decade and should not be written off so quickly because of one song. He is extremely talented and not all of his songs are like “Blurred Lines.” For every Blurred Lines or “Give it 2 U” type song he has a song like “Stupid Things” or “2 The Sky”

  29. Chicagogurl says:

    I do think they’re greater than the sum. She seems preppy but I think he gives her more street cred since he works wit very diverse artists and I think she gives him more industry cred and opportunities. I doubt he’d have landed house husbands if he wasn’t with paula.

  30. Hannah says:

    I wouldn’t say thicke is the more powerful. Up until this summer Paula definetly had the better career of the two. She has been in many mainstream movies like mission impossible and denzel movies as well as indie movies such as precious. She is one of the more successful black actresses over the last decade or so.

  31. Kelly says:

    I didn’t know who they were until the VMA awards show so no, I do not think they are a power couple. Lol

  32. AmandaPanda says:

    I don’t really care about the sleaze, but if someone could inform me why Robin always holds his arm out like a beginner adult ballet dancer I’d be most obliged. Does he think it makes him look less mooby or something?

  33. umyeah says:

    He said on Howard stern that he doesn’t want to be like his dad (who was a notorious womanizer), and that he wants to be a good husband and father to his son. He and Paula have been together for a long ass time. She comes off in interviews as a little crazy and all over the place, but he seems to love her through thick and thin.

  34. lena80 says:

    A lot of projection in some of these comments lol. Live and Let live…THEIR marriage literally affects no one but them.

  35. Carolyn says:

    I find both Thicke & Patton boring.

    Thicke lucked it to have a massive one hit. He owes whoever produced that single a massive thankyou and a cut of his earnings. Patton’s an actress but I couldn’t name anything she’s been in.

    Couldn’t care less about reading any PR pieces about them.

  36. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    These 2 give me a large case of the icks. Not sure why. Maybe it is just their vibe or something.

  37. TG says:

    Based on all of these comments I can see in a few years polyamorous couples/trouples will be fighting for equal marriage rights.

  38. Cinderella says:

    It’s all fun and games until someone who is not the wife gets knocked up.

  39. Jane says:

    I wonder if he is a sex addict?

  40. Maggie says:

    For some reason he makes my skin crawl. I heard him in an interview on the radio recently. He came across as quite humble and a nice guy.

  41. Lizzy1013 says:

    Random thought: any one else see the pix of him swimming with his son? He kept his shirt on the whole time, even in the water. Methinks someone is more insecure than the image he puts out there. And if he is that insecure, it wouldn’t surprise me if he needed side pieces to make him self feel good.

  42. Sophie says:

    I had no idea who either of these two were until the VMAs…

  43. Evie Rose says:

    I’m sure Paula knew exactly the kind of man he was when she decided to marry him. She’s not stupid. He’s a freak who loves to fk all the time and will most likely never be satisfied with one person. Most people couldn’t handle an open relationship or being cheated on. . but I see it as she’s open minded and loves him so unconditionally that she allows him to completely be himself. She will do whatever it takes to keep him happy and doesn’t judge him at all. That’s why he loves her so much. Most men want to have their cake and eat it to because they just aren’t monogamous by nature. I bet they have an AMAZING sex life!

  44. Snowpea says:

    Faaarrrrrk I love these two and I am not ashamed to say that I would totally be up for a threesome with them!

    He is friggin’ hot and she is STEAAAAMMMYYYY as f*ck.

    That is all ;)

  45. Memama says:

    He is not a one hit wonder. I think people seem to forget that he had a solid music career in R&B before Blurred lines came out. It is his first pop hit if anything.

  46. Raina Y says:

    Dejavu was a pretty big movie years back so I’m surprised people haven’t heard of Paula or seen any of her movies? I love robin, I don’t really like blurred lines and but love his older songs, sometimes to be really successful songwriting and singing talent is just not enough and publicly stunt “shocking” videos like blurred lines video really gained him a lot of attention and now he is so much more famous than before even though his current songs are not serious as before

  47. Michele says:

    They don’t have to explain anything to be honest. I think she could care less about it. She’s the wife, the blonde is a hussy. She’s not concerned about it, we shouldn’t be either.

    They’ve been together since they were teens, yes married a few years but together for a long time.

  48. Atcen says:

    i’ve read all comments !
    What a bunch of immature women you all are.
    A working relationship is not necesserly a lasting relationship, my dad used to beat my mum for about 35 years !!! they have never divorced, because my mum has accepted to live in a miserable way !
    this woman PAULA is just LYING to herself beleive me
