Robin Thicke Accused of Child Abuse, Paula Patton Denied Request to Limit His Joint Custody

Robin Thicke Accused of Child Abuse, Paula Patton Denied Request to Limit His Joint Custody

Robin Thicke has reportedly been investigated by the Department of Children and Family Services after his six-year-old son Julian told his mom Paula Patton and his school that he was hit by his dad.

Julian reportedly told his school that Robin spanked him more than once and the school reported the incident on January 3, at which time Paula filed an emergency order to restrict the contact that her ex would have with their son. She wanted him to only see Julian during monitored daytime visits.

In the documents filed, Paula said that Julian is scared of Robin and a school official filed a document noting that the six-year-old says his dad frequently “punches” him very hard, according to TMZ.

Robin explained what happened in the legal docs.

“On a very rare occasion and only as a last resort, I will use light spanking, but it is consistent with the law — open hand on the butt. This is the type of discipline to which Paula and I agreed during our marriage,” he said.

Robin also thinks that Paula is retaliating against him as she was not invited to his dad Alan Thicke‘s funeral last month. “Paula did not have a positive relationship with my father and often made negative comments to me about my father. As such, she was not welcome at his funeral,” he said in the docs.

Despite the claims, a judge denied Paula‘s request to limit Robin‘s joint custody, but the case is still ongoing.

    My God….Celebrities are ruining eveyrthing with their constant airing of their private lives and they way they start to apologize for things that normal people do EVERY SINGLE DAY. Stop apologizing celebrities. Stop commenting on stuff. Leave rumors and reports be.

    How many times did all of us get spanked? By our mothers, aunts, grandmothers and so on. Anybody who would take care of us would spank us either lightly, jokingly or in a serious way. And most of the time, now that we’re adults, we know we deserved it. It’s normal, it’s silly, it’s what people do.

    It’s one thing for a mother, father, couple or whatever to decide never to do things like that, but it’s a whole other over the top and damaging thing to turn it into “child abuse” or restriction of parental rights.

    Call me when Robin slaps the hell out of that kid and leaves him with no teeth or something really awful and dramatic.

    If the child reported this to a teacher, than they would have to report it. They are mandatory reporters. This would become public. Most children that age tend to deny abuse, not misreport it. Unless Paula was behind coaching their to makes these reports to teachers, the investigation is out of her control.

    Most loving parents would attempt to limit visitation if their child reported abuse. None of this is strange or attention seeking. Considering the prevalence of abuse it would be stranger than not if it wasn’t occurring in celebrity families. It is not a rare phenomenon, nor is it limited to economic situation.

    Oh my god I hope he fidnt learn that from his father

    Ahhh there’s the typical sadistic abuse apologist who thinks traumatizing, instilling fear anger and violence into an infant is let me guess: “discipline”?…Apparently punching and potentially bruising a kid isn’t ALREADY “awful and dramatic” enough for you, sick fuck? Placing any form of involuntary and forced contact on an other person’s body (no matter how old they are) IS abuse but of course someone such as yourself who lacks intellect, common sense and morals will fail to understand that. Do yourself a favor and don’t have any children. Unless you want your scummy genes to live on. If you do then good luck raising a future serial killer that abuses people and substances and anger issues and animosity towards you until the day you die.

  • Do Tell

    True. I heard of a teenager being beaten. He didn’t say a word to anyone about his dad, but classmates saw his wounds when he was in school and someone reported it.

    Might be something out of character (hitting, spanking) for Robin to do. He could be upset & grieving (after his father’s death) and have a short fuse. And if he is a drug user (just saying–many singers use drugs), it could be something that needs looking into.

  • Cooper

    Punching is definite abuse. A spank on the but that doesn’t leave marks isn’t abuse but if your doing anything more than that and/or leaving marks on your child’s body then I agree it’s abuse. I never had to spank my nephews when I baby sat them ever. Time out with their nose in the corner worked just fine.

  • Guest

    Lawd. I believe Robin. Paula looks nuts.

  • Will

    Any man that disrespects women will do the same to a kid.

  • Wendy

    Spanking is one thing, but the kid says he “frequently punches him very hard”….who knows…he could be talking about the spanking, or Robin might hit him.

    Either way, if the kid is scared of him, that’s something that needs to be the number 1 thing to listen to.

  • Maria M.

    Spanking is abuse these days? What a sick world we leave in! As a parent you have every right to spank your brat and it’s perfectly legal. PC is making world obnoxious place where you have to apologize for spanking your own fucking kid!

  • Visitor

    Bad timing for Robin. He just lost his dad.

  • Whycantweallgetalong Whycantwe

    With ALL the beautiful pictures of Paula Patton, one has to wonder why this picture was selected to be displayed? I believe Paula. Robin admits to hitting the child and Robin has a drinking problem and is a drug abuser!!

  • Whycantweallgetalong Whycantwe

    The girlfriend probably does not want to be saddled with a child on the weekend. There was an article that said Robin had custody of the son Thursday, Friday and Saturday. That 19 year old thot girlfriend wants to party ….not saddled with a CB child.

  • Bob

    Thank you, Guest, for talking some sense here. Professional school officials with all their “mandatory reporting” on the “truth of babes” don’t hold a candle to how you think this woman looks to YOU in that picture.

    Luckily for you, I’m an educator, so I have to report you for abusing the looks of one of the most beautiful people on the planet. You can rejoice in no longer having visitation rights with that (eww, gross) woman.

    Sorry, what were we talking about? The safety of the child, right…

  • Bob

    All I read was “obnoxious.”

    It’s really hard to believe(and a little sad) that the judge denied Paula’s request regarding visitation.

  • Delores Pauldo

    Why nobody don’t report on Rachel bilson being a parent? She haven’t worked in two years. She cuts her child hair to look like a boy. She don’t want nobody to see how cute the child is. She don’t want nobody to know she a mom only when it suits her. She really is unfit parent. She never take her child anywhere. She complain that her child won’t let her sleep. Both her and Hayden don’t be seen with child. There are pics but Jared won’t posted them unless about star wars movies he was in longtime ago. I sure Robin did not mean no harm. Just want to be in spotlight like Bran and Angelina.

  • Lili

    He should be ashamed to bring his father funeral into this. He sounds bitter and not her. Why would she want this kind of attention ??? She left HIM. Even when he begged her and wrote a whole album for her, she still left.And now she upset because he wouldn’t let her go to a funeral fueled with celebrities ? I doubt it.

  • 73angelD

    Wow! A celebrity keeping their child shielded from paparazzi is not poor parenting nor does it make them unfit parents. If anything, It makes them better parents. You are not entitled to see pictures of another person’s child. Get over yourself and learn how to write proper English.

  • Wendy

    lol what? You sound like you’re insane. She’s allowed to have her privacy with her child. You sound like you need a life.

  • Phil the Donahue

    Lame judge. If a kid d is scared of his father there is a reason. That guy is gross. Probably sucking off his son.

  • Phil the Donahue

    Spanking is hitting and is illegal in most countries. It’s seen as a sexual act throughout history. My mother tried it once, turned red and never did it again. She disciplined without the need of hitting her kids caus she knew how to talk to us.

  • Phil the Donahue

    Yeah, cause a parter stays married for that long and is never seen at the club. Besides spanking is illegal in most countries. It’s hitting.

  • Phil the Donahue

    Ispanking is illegal in most countries. It rewires the brain and is very bad for children. It creates anxiety issues in adults. It’s hitting. Spanking is a sexual act throughout history.

  • Wendy

    That’s your opinion. I have my own. I don’t spank my daughter but I was spanked growing up, and I never felt abused, it wasn’t even ever done hard enough to hurt, just enough to get my attention and correct my behavior.

  • Phil the Donahue

    It’s illegal in most countries. Spanking is sexual. But hey u wanna put your hand on your child’s ass where their lover is gonna put it then that’s your psychological issue and eventual meds issue. It creates all kinds of psychological problems in adults specifically anxiety.

  • Phil the Donahue

    Dudes a psycho remember when he stalked Paula and made that creepy ass record. Guy is a sadistic creep. Stupid judge.
