Robin thicke paula patton dating since
"So I drove all the way to his house and, like, crawl through the bushes, to look through the window. That being said, most otherwise-levelheaded people don't go around hiding in bushes unless they've been led to feel they have a good reason.Regardless of what went on behind closed doors that we—or either of them—didn't know about, none of that is to say that they weren't madly in love with each other.I had to kick into gear because I love nobody more than my wife in this world. Julian has changed everything—every move I make, I know that it will affect him, his growth and his happiness."Around that time, he also talked to about what Patton—and being with one woman for so long—meant to him."When you have that relationship and that means the most to you—you know I can't live without that woman, she is my muse, my best friend, and my creative partner," Thicke said. We are that to each other."Asked what Patton's sexiest quality was to him, he said, "It's her intelligence and her strength."I didn't have a great relationship with my mom and she didn't have a great relationship with her dad and we became that for each other. I've never met a stronger person who stands by their will and their moral values. Ever since I met her and we were 16 years old and she was the president of the black student union and I was just a silly white boy who didn't understand or have compassion."Thicke continued, "I have a song on my new album called, 'I Don't Know How It Feels to Be You,' and she and I were in the middle of an argument and she said, "Robin, no matter how hard you try, or how compassionate you are, you'll never know what it's like to be a black woman.' So I got up and I wrote this song in five minutes. You know how much I love you.'"It is this sort of evidence of a uniquely enduring yet also evolving connection that makes what ultimately happened such a damn shame.While both Thicke, who grew up with a famous dad, and Patton have been celebrities for a long time, it wasn't until 2013 when "Blurred Lines" came out that Thicke's career kicked into a whole other gear.And while it could be easy to say that his whirlwind year got the better of him, prompting the demise of his marriage, it seems more likely that their marriage was on shaky ground long beforehand."He asked me to dance and the rest is history," she smiled.According to Thicke, he sang Stevie Wonder's "Jungle Fever" to Patton (whose mom is white and dad is African-American) during that first dance, a serenade being one of his go-to romantic moves—and he's never been shy about making a musical scene, including when he titled his first post-split album .
Years later, Patton told a story about becoming so convinced that Thicke was cheating on her that she drove to his house and hid outside in the bushes trying to get a glimpse of any shenanigans going on inside."I was a bit of a crazy-in-love girlfriend and I remember, way before we were married, having this suspicion about him," she recalled. The best part was that I was wrong."He caught me outside, he goes, 'I can see you,' like it was hilarious. Maybe a little crazy.' He's like, 'That's OK, I'm a little crazy too.'"Wouldn't you know, celebrities at their not-finest moments are just like us at our not-finest moments.Sure, some relationships end with one, or perhaps even both, people being entirely blindsided by what triggered the breakup.But after the dust has settled, more often than not you start to see the clues that all wasn't everything it was cracked up to be for a good long while, if not the whole time."I knew she was special the night I met her," he said. "Their subsequent visibility eventually made up for the high school-era slight."He wasn't my first kiss," Patton told Like Thicke, Patton was born in Los Angeles, so they certainly made sense geographically."I was only 14, but she was already the most special girl."Not that the world they were living in was a perfect one. After graduating from Hamilton High, Patton attended UC Berkeley for a semester, but transferred back down south to attend USC for its film school, and all was geographically desirable once again.
