The saga between Robin Thicke and Paula Patton has taken another dark turn.
Earlier today, a Los Angeles judge denied Robin’s request for temporary sole custody of his and Paula’s six-year-old son Julian.The judge also issued a domestic violence restraining order demanding that Robin steer clear of his son and Paula for the time being.
Now in another shocking twist, Robin’s lawyer claims that Paula is under investigation for “emotional abuse.”
Robin submitted a declaration from his lawyer, informing the judge they have been told by the DCFS lawyer that the agency will close the investigation into Robin because the allegations were “unfounded,” and there is an open investigation into Paula for “emotional abuse.”
TMZ broke the story … DCFS opened an investigation after Julian told school officials earlier this year that his dad had been spanking him hard. According to Paula’s legal docs, a school official claimed Julian had complained Robin was punching him … something Robin has denied.
We’ve learned the “emotional abuse” allegation involves claims that Paula has intentionally tried to alienate Julian from Robin.
As for Paula’s decision to go for a domestic violence restraining order, we’re told the trigger was Robin going to Paula’s house to pick up Julian for a scheduled visit, and when she wouldn’t open the door he allegedly started banging on it … something Robin denies.
Things have gotten so ugly between these two.
