E! News reports that Patton is trying to prove Thicke is unfit. She’s accusing him of spanking their child excessively. In Patton’s declaration to the court she also alleges that the “Blurred Lines” singer cheating on and physically abused her. Citing alleged instances when he “kicked, pushed and hit” her.
The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Servicesis reportedly investigating the allegations of child abuse.
Thicke said his son told school officials that his dad had spanked him. The school then notified DCFS.
“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,” Thicke explained. “This is the type of discipline to which Paula and I agreed during our marriage.”
On Thursday, January 26, a Los Angeles judge ruled that Thicke “has a history of domestic violence.” Patton was granted a temporary restraining order, which gives her sole custody of Julian until the next court date on February 24
Thicke was ordered not to come within 100 yards of Patton, her mother and Julian, other than supervised visits with his son. He will be allowed to see Julian three days a week at a neutral location.
The singer’s attorney, Angela Pierce di Donato, says the DCFS will be closing the case against her client because they could not find proof that Julian had been harmed by his father.
“The Court issued temporary orders today based solely on paperwork,” she told PEOPLE. “[L.A.’s Department of Children & Family Services] will be closing the physical abuse allegation against Robin as ‘Unfounded,’ but has added an emotional abuse allegation against Paula, which remains under investigation. We believe that DCFS sees the damage that Paula has done to Julian and will take appropriate action to protect him.”
Despite Donato’s claims, a source confirmed to PEOPLE that the “investigation is ongoing” and Patton is not being looked into by the agency.
Donato told PEOPLE that “Paula never reported any domestic violence until she was in a position of contempt by violating the custody orders. Infidelity has nothing to do with custody. She is attempting to throw anything at him to hurt him, but Robin’s focus is their son.”
Patton and Thicke divorced on March 20, 2015, after almost 9 years of marriage.
