Now the Nanny Is Involved in Robin Thicke & Paula Patton's Custody Battle
More details are emerging about Robin Thicke and Paula Patton's ugly custody battle — and now we know their nanny has been involved in the whole mess.
The pair made headlines when police were called over a custody dispute they had in mid-February, but audio of the 911 call, obtained by TMZ, reveals that it was their 6-year-old son Julian's nanny who made the call to police.
During the call, the nanny asked police to meet Patton and Thicke at the park where Thicke was set to pick up Julian. She claimed that Thicke was violating the restraining order that Patton had against him.
"We need you guys to just intervene because we have a court order document that the child doesn’t want to go with his father, he doesn’t have to go, and now it’s enforced," the nanny says during the call. "We need you to come and enforce the order. We have a restraining order, the person is within distance of the restraining order, he’s in violation of it currently."
She also told police that Julian was begging Patton not to leave him with Thicke.
"This child is literally begging for me and everyone else to call 911. That’s how much he does not want to go," the nanny explained. "… He’s 6 years old, and literally every time we have these visits, the night before, the day before, he’s crying, he’s praying to angels, he’s trying to avoid it like the plague. It needs to end."
An insider close to Thicke told a different story, though, saying Patton was an hour late to drop off Julian, and that Thicke stayed inside his car while a mediator went back and forth between them.
"Here's what happens," the source told Us Weekly back in February, just after the incident took place. "Paula finally shows up and won't let Julian out of the car, she doesn't want to hand Julian over. The moderator is going between them and Robin is sitting in his car, doing as he's directed. And for some reason she called her housekeeper, and the housekeeper who was at the house, not at the park, mind you, calls the police and says Robin is violating his restraining order. And Robin never got out of his car. Paula then takes Julian and leaves."
The insider continued, "When the police showed up, she was gone. They went up to Robin and they said, 'Someone called saying you broke the restraining order' and he said, 'No, this is my designated spot to pick up my son. We have joint custody and we do this every week, I stay in the car.' He had a full conversation with the police and they didn't do anything. The saddest part about this is that was his only time to see Julian."
A friend of Patton's told yet another different story.
"Paula was not an hour late," the Patton source said. "What happens is, when Paula goes to hand off Julian to Robin, she is supposed to hand him off to a monitor. Robin is not supposed to be there because of the court-ordered restraining order. So he showed up despite the court order, and then Julian said he didn't want to go with his dad as soon as he saw him, so that's why the handoff didn't end up happening."
Leading up to these reports, Thicke was recently accused of bribing caseworkers to win the custody dispute.
