Paula Patton no longer wants to divorce Robin Thicke, they’re nearly back together


When we last checked in on Paula Patton and Robin Thicke (last week), Paula still hadn’t hired a divorce lawyer and she was “open” to reconciling with Robin Thicke. Robin was apparently trying to persuade her to come back to him, telling her that he could change and he was already in the midst of changing for her. No more wild partying. No more groping young club girls. No more disrespecting Paula in front of national televised audiences. And Paula is still seeing if he’s for real. That was the holding pattern. Now TMZ reports that Paula and Robin are pretty much back together, sort of.

Robin Thicke has made significant headway in his campaign to win his wife back, because multiple sources directly connected to the couple tell TMZ … Paula Patton is open to giving him another chance.

We’re told Robin and Paula never stopped communicating. They talk constantly, but she was very clear the day she dumped him … she wanted a DIVORCE.

Our sources say the tone of the conversations have changed, and the 2 of them are now talking about what Robin needs to do to convince Paula that the marriage can work to her satisfaction.

She has not hired a divorce lawyer, we’re told, and has no plans to do so. We’re told their phone conversations have been productive. But here’s what hasn’t been productive … she’s not impressed with Robin’s on-stage pronouncements of love.

She is impressed that Robin has been a good dad since the split, seeing their kid when he can and keeping in touch when he’s on the road.

As for the tone of the conversations … we’re told “smooth and cordial.” We’re not exactly sure what smooth means, but you know, they’re both very … smooth.

[From TMZ]

Gurl, HIRE A LAWYER. Of course he’s sweet-talking you now. Of course he’s putting in the effort NOW. Now that you’ve publicly dumped him and put him on blast. Just remember his wandering hand (not to mention his wandering dong, gurl). Just remember all of his sleazy crap and just call it a day.

Here’s what worries me though: Robin is waging an effective campaign to “woo” his wife back, which is something that very few celebrity men would do. Most men are too fragile and delicate to come right out and publicly proclaim that they don’t want a divorce and they want to work it out, and begin a public campaign to make that happen. I can see how Paula would be flattered by that and how this has given her what she really wanted: the chance to see how much she means to Robin. That being said, he’s still the same douchebag.

    Someone (I can’t remember who, sorry) said this was a publicity stunt, and I’m starting to believe it.

  2. TheCountess says:

    Being married to Robin Thicke seems an appropriate punishment for the woman who gave the world the single-phobic piece of garbage, “Baggage Claim.”

    • Meredith says:

      I haven’t seen the movie but now I think I have to just to determine the validity of your comment, TheCountess. Because if it is really awful, I can say “Damn, TheCountess was right. Paula deserves that douche for putting this crap out on the video store shelves”. Sigh, research can be so time consuming. But it must be done!

  3. ray says:

    HAHHAHHAHA this is such a publicity stunt its so laughable! i was kinda dubious at first but the second he went off on one on stage about winning her back. so so predictable! ahaha

  4. Renee28 says:

    I think they had an open relationship, he stopped being discreet and this is all just a stunt to improve his rep.

  5. lunchcoma says:

    Still thinking this is a publicity stunt.

  6. Birdie says:

    I really don’t know with these two. Before the split I thought they had an open marriage. I still think Paula has a serious substance abuse problem. She showed up high or drunk at several occasions, so she seems to have issues as well. Now everyone’s on Paula’s side, but I really get the feeling, that she was into everything, but something happened and something changed. She was with him for SO LONG. I think, she would have left him way sooner, if she was not into him flirting with others.
    To me, this whole story doesn’t make sense.

  7. MissNostalgia says:

    Well…it is her marriage and she has to do what works best for her. But he is a douche and once a douche, always a douche.

  8. GeeMoney says:

    If this is a publicity stunt, that’s pretty sad.

  9. Ana says:

    ??? But I just read last night that he practically called the wooing off and was seen without his wedding ring? Wherever it was that I read it they were saying how this was a confirmation that they were getting divorced. Now I’m confused…lol

  10. Sayrah says:

    I don’t think he can change but I’m not in their marriage. They have a child and just because some random people say they would kick him to the curb, she may feel that she owes it their family to give it another chance.

  11. Louise says:

    Lets give them the benefit of the doubt. Its hard to wipe out 20 odd years of history. very hard. I had never heard of him before 12 months ago, so its obviously gone to his head. Maybe its the wake up call for both of them. p.s. he has nice legs and a nice bum.

  12. yennefer says:

    Publicity stunt or not, I’m still hoping for Katy Perry’s douchemagnet to work and bring her Robin’s Dicke. Go Katy!

  13. Arock says:

    I disagree. Anyone who wears a pleather blazer with a fur collar to whole foods in 80 Cali weather means business.
    Of course it’s a stunt. Unfortunately, were the real losers and will have to endure Paula’s awards dresses for another year.

  14. Alyce says:

    This is like Bieber and Selena Gomez, the grown-ups edition.

  15. Christin says:

    Assuming this isn’t a PR game, he may change his tune once she becomes open to reconciling.

    Remember Arnold and Maria? After the public humiliation of his maid’s love child, he supposedly tried to woo Maria back but then backed off when it looked like things might be warming. I think Robin may be a similar type. He doesn’t like being dumped and also likes the challenge. If she acts like she’ll take him back, he may start going cold on her.

  16. Wilma says:

    While I think he’s a sleazy douche, these people have known eachother forever, been together through highs and lows and I can understand that this is not something you’re going to be casually throwing away. It’s not my marriage but theirs and if they’re working it out good luck to them.

    • Lauraq says:

      Well, he was willing to throw it away on a few flings now, wasn’t he?
      That’s what bugs me about people saying ‘Don’t throw everything away over one night’ when one party has a one night stand. The cheating party was ready to throw everything away for one night.

      (BTW this is not an attack on you, I just see that kind of argument a lot).

  17. Jayna says:

    Made-up story. I doubt anyone knows where her head is at right now. The public pronouncement means nothing. He has always proclaimed in interviews how much he loves her, what she means to him, how this new height of popularity careerwise would mean nothing without her. The man loves his wife and has always stated so. And i don’t doubt it. He just loves hitting on any strange available also. One week of behaving isn’t going to change that. Why would a week of him calling his son change anything? Made-up story. Robin has always been a great dad and takes his son with him a lot either traveling with him or at home when Paula is working. That’s not their issue, Robin being a great dad. Their issue isn’t loving his wife. Their issue is he wants other women also. They would need lots of therapy to work out that behavior. That type never changes though if he hasn’t by now.

    Oddly enough, I think Paula would do better moving on than him. He was the poor liitle rich kid left at home alone from teens on. He loves his parents, but Paul has been in his life since his teens . He is dependent on her emotionally and as his family. He can find sex anywhere, but I doubt he is going to find that kind of love as easily, and I bet Paula will find it more easily as far as moving on because she’s been the one struggling over his behavior. He hasn’t. He just wanted it all.

  18. Mimz says:

    I seriously believe TMZ has wiretaps on them… This is not a source, this is them listening to their conversations.
    OAN its 20yrs of marriage, to say oh just leave him might be unrealistic, maybe this is what she felt she needed to do to scare him for good, to stop with his antics. And maybe he will learn NOW he might actually lose her.

    I don’t know how many of you know his song/video for “Lost Without You” in which she stars, and apparently he wrote it for her as well.

    She knows how to handle him, I hope they work it out.

  19. roxy750 says:

    These two are the Spencer Pratt/Heidi Montag (sp) of late. These two are spoiled nobodys that crave attention—she is just as bad as him—puke.

  20. randmanrandy says:

    I thought this was a P.R. stunt from the get go. #1 reason: Blaming their separation, in part, on the MTV arwards/Miley fiasco. That just seemed too ridiculous.

  21. Debb says:

    This broad’s smile is just as annoying as Katie Holmes’ smirk. Every photo it’s the same pose and smirk.

  22. LAK says:

    She should get whatever she wants in writing.

  23. LOL says:

    Two stunt queens. They deserve each other.

  24. Leah says:

    I think this is made up. Some other site had his picture and he was no longer wearing his wedding ring. You think if he was still wooing her he would hold on to that.

  25. Stef Leppard says:

    She misses his arm boner *SPROINGGGG!*

  26. Tammy White says:

    Again they had an OPEN marriage! The problem is when he scored a hit with Blurred Lines, he became more well known & stories started coming out his “philandering” ways, which Paula knew all about. Either he embarrassed her with him not being discreet or broke another rule….or this is a stunt. But calling him a douche & a sleaze is not fair here…she knew full well what he had been doing & for all anyone knows she’s doing likewise but just more discreet.

    • CF98 says:

      I agree but we can still think he’s a douche and a sleaze but we could probably say the same for her. I think this was to save face they had an open marriage but given how judgmental people can be over that type of lifestyle they concocted this story to save face

  27. Sundaygal says:

    Girlfriend needs a stylist more than a lawyer. Oh and two words: MAKEUP SEX

  28. Dizzle says:

    Well we’re all talking about them, looks like whatever this publicity stunt is working.

  29. SouthernGal says:

    For those saying she should dump him…NOT AS EASY AS IT IS SAID. I’ve been with my husband since I was 16 and he’s the only man I’ve been with. When you are with someone that long you become complacent with them. When you marry it is for better or worse. Sure he is a complete a**hole for publicily disrespecting her but that doesn’t make him a bad person. Besides the groping what else has he done that would warrant anyone to say she should just walk away???

    Like them or not, I understand her position and until you’ve been there you won’t understand. LOVE AND LONGEVITY people!!!

    • cloud&feather says:

      I’ve also been with my husband since I was 16. The “worse” part doesn’t mean you get to be immature forever and ever. Putting your hand up some girl’s behind (and the entire world knowing about it and having seen the picture) is enough for her to want to leave him, since it’s probably not only that one thing. Gross! And if he is publicly disrespecting her, that makes him a bad husband. What is the gain in that?

  30. lisa2 says:

    They made this public. They invited the world into their lives. He has been standing on stage talking about his separation. Telling the world he wants his wife back. Nobody would have known anything if they had not released a separation announcement; pictures of flowers arriving to her door. Come on. Celebrities get flowers all the time; do we get pics. No. Then there was his talking to his audiences about it. Going on radio shows and talking about it. That is not Private. That is HEY COME ON IN AND PULL UP A SEAT.

    They have a child. That alone should have been reason enough to keep it in house and not tell the world.

    • Sandy says:

      It’s also manipulative as hell. This way, Robin gets to make himself the sympathetic one, the victim, and she’s either going to go along with a nice, “romantic” ending, or be the strong woman (read “bitch) who breaks up the marriage. Either he’s manipulating her, or they’re both manipulating us.

  31. Carrie says:

    Not relevant at all but holy crap that child is adorable though.

  32. P.J. says:

    Well, considering that this whole thing was one of the most laughably transparent C-list publicity stunts of all time (much like the Tori & Dean ‘cheating scandal’) is this really all that shocking to ANYONE?

    Paula and Robin all but admitted that they have had an open relationship all this time. (And more and more stories of threesomes and such have continued to come out of the woodwork.) Was anyone honestly fooled by her sudden desire to “split” with him afters years of evidence of his behavior? Please. Moving on…

  33. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    She was good in Precious.

  34. Amy says:

    Paula can be a pretty woman but I think she looks transgender sometimes. Anyway, getting to the point…the publicity stunt thing doesn’t seem surprising. She would have done it to salvage her reputation. Puritanical Americans can’t handle the idea of an open marriage (see will smith and jada, kutcher and moore, etc). Post-reconciliation he’ll probably be doing the same thing but more quietly. They’re both potheads and have been for a long time.

  35. Cali says:

    I’m so glad that I’m not the only cynic. I believe 1000% that it’s a publicity stunt from start to finish.

  36. ViktoryGin says:

    This is what I find confounding: these two have been fixtures on the urban circuit for YEARS. Mainstream blogs didn’t care about them before last year, but the urban blogs did. And there was NONE of this kind of f*ckery. In fact, they appeared to be one of the more stable couples. It’s very plausible thst his mainstresm popularity rocked the boat, there seemed to be none of this public ass-grabbing. If all of this has beem happening for years, I wonder why there were no pics on urban blogs? Don’t get it.
