Robin Thicke Loses Custody Of His Son
The custody battle between Robin Thicke and Paula Patton is getting uglier by the minute, as now Robin has temporarily lost custody rights of son Julian.
Both Paula and Robin went to court to get temporary sole custody of their six-year-old. The judge not only shot him down, but also issued the domestic violence restraining order Paula had asked for. Robin must now stay away from Julian, Paula, and her mother until further notice.
But Robin’s lawyer is saying that the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services are investigating Paula for emotional abuse - and parental alienation. According to documents, she asked for a restraining order after Robin banged on her door when she wouldn’t let him pick the child up. As for the emotional abuse claim against Paula, a source said it stemmed from his claims that she’s intentionally trying to alienate their child from him.
