As if the photo of him grabbing a woman's butt after the VMAs wasn't incriminating enough, now the girl from the pic, Lana Scolaro, is claiming that she made out with Robin Thicke that same night at a party at the Greenwich Hotel in New York City.
She told Life & Style that she was "with him the whole night" and that "his hands were everywhere," and also indicated that he didn't seem to be too worried about the fact that his wife, Paula Patton, was also in attendance at the party.
And now Paula's rep has released her reaction to the claims -- and it's definitely not what you'd expect.
In regards to Lana, the rep simply said, "It's just a girl looking for some attention. Paula and Robin aren't concerned."
Huh? What do you mean they're not concerned?
I guess on one hand it is possible that this girl is milking her 15 minutes of fame for all it's worth and figured she might as well make a few bucks in the process -- but do you really think she'd go so far as to claim that Robin cheated on Paula right before her very eyes?
Maybe. But for some reason, I wouldn't be the least bit shocked if Lana's story is true, especially considering the butt-grabbing photo. I mean, if the dude was bold enough to give her a squeeze, why wouldn't he be up for a friendly game of tonsil hockey later in the evening?
And as far as Paula's reaction is concerned, I'm guessing one of two things is going on here. Either she's totally in denial about the fact that her husband seems to have a thing for other (younger) women, or she's trying to cover his ass by playing it cool so he doesn't wind up looking like the jerk of the century. (Translation -- if his career goes down the tubes, it doesn't exactly bode well for her future either.)
I guess there's always a third possibility too -- she just doesn't want to get mixed up in the drama that goes along with publicly speaking out about rumors that your husband cheated on you.
Yeah -- that must be it. She'd rather lay low than drag this scandal out any further. But if Robin allegedly engages in any more shady behavior, she might want to think about making him sleep on the sofa for at least a week or two.
Do you think Robin really made out with Lana?
