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…
