Despite being biracial, actress Paula Patton admits that being with Robin Thicke wasn’t always easy for her. Pop the hood for details.

Paula Patton and Robin Thicke have been together for a loooooong time. How long? Just check the throwback photos below and you’ll get a pretty good idea.

Despite being half white herself, Paula says she initially kept her relationship with Thicke a secret:

“When I was in high school I found myself totally enamoured [with] this guy,” the 34-year-old actress says. “But I didn’t want all my high school friends to know that I’d fallen for a white boy. I didn’t want to be judged by that. So I hid him. I did.”

Paula did not even attend the prom, for fear that her classmates would tease her about her date:

“That’s the sad part. I missed it because I was afraid. I didn’t choose him because of his colour,” she says. “I chose him because of his heart and his soul and he makes me laugh. He’s one of the most special human beings I know.”

That’s right Paula! Stand by your swirl…

    @ real black is chocolate

    Do you need me to recommend you to a psychotherapist? I’m serious. As a forensic scientist, you scare me. I’ve been around a lot of hateful people and your rhetoric remind me of them. Get yourself help because if you truly believe this, you will end up killing someone or someone killing you. #realtalk

    chocolate/dark/red-skinned black ppl in brazil is minority right now plus mixed and light-skinned not want to be dark. black ppl wake up!

    white men in america wants same sh’t that is why we have half cracker light-skinned president!

    all blacks have mixed up with whites
    hate yourself
    to love whites
    to respect whites
    and always depended on them

    white man very much want to destroy black community and black race in all the world

    Racism will always exist no matter how much people mix. People will just come up with different ways to label themselves.

    black ppl wake up mathaf’cka!

We met online at an age gap dating site- AGEROMANCE . co m—a nice and free place for Younger- Women and Older Men, or Older Women and Younger Men, to interact with each other.

    Mr.uPPeR CuTTs

    “Robin Thick is talented” WTF???

    he’s successful and on radio now only owing to black women bs!

    Everytime when i hear his songs by radio my ears start to be ailing!

    who has told to this ugly white boy that he can sing?

    eminem kills hip hop and robin thicke kills r&b. as well as always white ppl do with black music!

  • real black is chocolate

    Hi @Real black is chocolate, i feel really sad for you. You must have been hurt by a biracial friend or lover and thats why you hate them so much.
    I’m half black half white if you prefer it like that.And i’m proud. I wouldn’t change it.I love my two sides, black people have gave me a way harder time than white people and i look more black than white. Who are you to judge someone? First judge your self.God is looking on you.

    @ real black is chocolate

    You are probably a nice dark skinned chap and probably will find yourself a nice coffee coloured lady to marry and have kids; now just out of curiosity what would you do if your child appears very light skinned and mixed race looking? You know it can happen right?… Would you disown that child even if a DNA test proves its yrs?….

    I’m pretty indifferent to your views however just wondering what you’d do if you’re thrown such a “curve ball”?

  • real black is chocolate

    Nickisha

    nah ma i dont hate your ppl. i just love my black ppl!

    my black is beautiful!

    BLACK LOVE!!
