Thicke crossed line with Miley, insiders say


Patton felt “utterly disrespect­ed” by twerking incident at MTV Awards

Paula Patton felt “utterly disrespect­ed” by Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus’ MTV Video Music Awards performanc­e.

The 38-year-old actress reportedly had a huge argument with the Blurred Lines singer following the show, saying the raunchy routine, which featured 21-year-old Miley twerking against her spouse. The spectacle was insulting to Patton, particular­ly as it took place in front of a huge national TV audience.

And according to TMZ, Paula was particular­ly “enraged” because Miley improvised the performanc­e without warning but her husband was happy to play along.

The couple, who announced their separation after eight years of marriage earlier this week, began arguing constantly after the ceremony in August, with the actress particular­ly furious with Robin’s insistence on continuing to party at clubs and frequently being pictured with various women.

Although the couple, who have three-year-old son Julian together, insisted the separation was mutual, friends say Robin fought hard against the decision.

“Robin wanted to save their marriage, but it was Paula’s choice and she ended it. Robin does not want this divorce,” a source told Us Weekly.

“Robin was not blindsided — he knew this was coming out, but he was committed to saving their marriage. He didn’t want this.”

Another source added: “She is done with the marriage, but he was definitely fighting to stay together until the last moment. It is still cordial between them, but they are now figuring things out.”
