Paula patton dating
Meanwhile, he and Patton had married on June 11, 2005; they welcomed son Julian on April 6, 2010."He's so proud of himself," Patton joked about her husband to Women's Health when she was pregnant.
"It's ridiculous."She also described Thicke as being incredibly attentive and romantic—and during the interview, she even received a delivery of flowers he had sent."He makes me feel beautiful," Patton gushed to the magazine.
So the balloon pops, everything that I was afraid of happening.
Soon, reports began emerging that Zach was actually still married to his wife while simultaneously dating Paula.
"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.
The lyrics are: 'I don't know how it feels to be you, though I try my best to understand what you're going through, I don't know how it feels to be you. After enjoying plenty of success, Thicke became a real-deal household name with the 2013 single "Blurred Lines," his smash-hit, song-of-the-summer collaboration with Pharrell off of Robin's album of the same name—and yet another song inspired by Patton."I don't think people got it," he told BBC's Newsbeat when asked about what were criticized by some as sexist or even misogynist lyrics. And I know she wants it because we've been together for 20 years."It was around then that he and Patton went from a generally interesting couple to a couple under the microscope, particularly when Thicke's public (and party) appearances multiplied exponentially—the "Blurred Lines" furor reaching fever pitch after Thicke's now infamous performance with Miley Cyrus at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.
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 .
"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.
