Robin Thicke spent his Christmas eve a little differently than most soon-to-be-divorced men tend to: with his ex-wife, Paula Patton. The two reunited for the woman’s annual holiday party, and spent the night celebrating with Patton’s family and friends, who sources say hold no ill feeling towards the Blurred Lines singer whatsoever following the pair’s split last year.
While the two were definitely in each other’s company during the bash in terms of the most basic sense (greeting each other to begin with, passing each other at various points in the night, etc), they are not said to have spent any actual time together during the few hours the event was taking place. Sources close to Patton say that she felt inviting him to the party despite their current relationship status would be the dignified and respectful thing to do as they have a son together, and Thicke had been at every one of her holiday celebrations for quite some time and uninviting him due to their divorce just felt plain rude.
Her family, however, was more than willing to show the 37-year-old some serious love during the gathering. Various photo galleries have been popping up over the internet detailing their affection for the singer, which has remained fully intact despite the somewhat dramatic breakup the two experienced last year. Sources close to the Patton family say that the clan was somewhat hoping the two could get through their rough patch and come out of it stronger and more stable, but sadly this was not the case. Some members are reportedly even optimistic that she and Thicke can still find another way to try to patch things up, despite the fact that Paula filed for divorce almost three months ago.
The Patton family’s dream that the two will become a full-blown couple again will mostly likely remain just that, as Thicke has not been shy about announcing to the world that he is single and ready to move on. In fact, recent reports have shown that the California native may have already found himself a new girlfriend that he is semi-serious with following his breakup with his wife of eight years.
Just over a month ago, new photographs came to light that detailed the overwhelming evidence regarding young model April Love Geary having spent night sleeping at Thicke’s California home, which he previously shared with his wife prior to the aforementioned filing of documents.
Geary took to social media over the course of several weeks to share various snapshots of herself in the home which, when matched up with stills of the residence obtained by TMZ directly after Patton’s filing, was clearly proved to be that of the singer. Thicke also recently brought his three-year-old son Julian into close company with his new love, with the three spending the day at a USC/UCLA game in late November. Geary is said to be 19 years old.
It remains to be seen whether Robin Thicke will continue his relationship with model April Love Geary or attempt to reconcile with his estranged wife before the divorce becomes final. For now, however, both of them are said to be done with the relationship and ready to move on with their lives.
