Paula Patton and Robin Thicke separated shortly after Thicke made it to the top of the music world with his smash-hit, “Blurred Lines.” Robin is now dating an Instagram model ten years younger than him, sparking the ire of many of Paula’s friends and family members.
To make the situation even more salacious, according to Paula – who sat down with the hosts of Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning – she ghost-wrote some of his tracks using the name, Max Haddington.
Paula said they knew each other since they were 15-years-old and had co-written songs like that since then. “You know, Robin and I wrote a lot of songs…….my name on the album is Max Haddington.”
And while we don’t doubt that her claims are true, some are undoubtedly wondering why she would conceal her identity. Paula explained that she did so that it didn’t seem like he was writing with his girlfriend, even though he was. Check out the video above.
Paula co-wrote songs on Robin’s album, Sex Therapy, including The Experience, Love After War, and his hit track, Blurred Lines. However, they went on to break up in 2015.
Even though they’re still reportedly “friends,” Paula accused him of domestic abuse and drug abuse back in 2017. They fought in the courts briefly and she got a temporary restraining order, but now they share joint custody of their child, Julian.
The revelation of her involvement with so much of his music makes a fan wonder just how much an artist really writes of their own music?
Celebrity Insider reported earlier in the week that Nicki Minaj and many others also use writers, as she bragged about co-producing some of her latest music, implying that she didn’t always do so. Nevertheless, if Paula’s claims are true, we’re expecting to hear the change in Robin’s sound considering they’re no longer working together. Will the music be of the same quality?
