The split of Robin Thicke and Paula Patton was one of the most surprising -- or the least, depending on how you look at it. On the one hand, the couple had been together since they were 14 and 15 respectively. They had had a son together the year before. They seemed like soul mates. On the other hand, infidelity rumors had been swirling around Robin pretty much since he danced with young, naked models in his "Blurred Lines" video. It didn't help that he was caught grabbing a young fan's ass in a "mirror selfie" at a party; or that he was seen dancing verrrrrry close to another young woman at yet another party. But Robin made it clear he wanted to win his wife back. Paula, on the other hand, remained silent. Until now. Paula Patton has finally spoken out about their split.
After first revealing to Vanity Fair that while Robin wasn't her first kiss, he was "my first lots of other things," she is asked about their separation and whether there is any chance they'll get back together, as Robin seemingly wants. She said:
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.
Soooooo that doesn't exactly answer the question. However, I would think if there was absolutely no chance, she would have said something like, "We will always love each other but have moved on" or something. This makes it sound like, as Jim Carrey put it in Dumb & Dumber, "So you're saying there's a chance!" Not much of one, mind you, but a chance nonetheless.
And how revealing is it that Robin was her "first of lots of other things"? My guess is that means that Robin was her first lover. And unless they had an "open relationship" as some tabs have claimed, that could mean Robin was her only lover all this time. That's a long time to be with one man. I'm not excusing any cheating that Robin may have done, but think about it. With the same woman since you were 14? No wonder the man is getting ass grabby. Not excusing it, mind you, but any man in his mid-30s who has been with a woman since he was basically a child ... what do you think is going to be on his mind when he's suddenly so popular with the ladies?
I would love to see these two reconcile but ONLY if Robin has changed his ways -- and that takes much more work than people think. It might take Robin DECADES to get other women out of his system!
Do you think they belong together?
