Paula Patton and Robin Thicke might be on the outs, but the actress still says there’s a “deep love” between them.
“We’ve known each other since we were teenagers,” the 38-year-old actress told Vanity Fair in an interview for its June issue.
“All I can tell you is there’s a deep love there — always was, and always will be.”
The beauty appears topless inside the mag, only wearing a fur coat, nude panties and fuchsia pumps as she poses near a pool — showing her estranged hubby exactly what he’s missing.
Paula and the “Blurred Lines” crooner, 37, “mutually” decided to separate in February after eight years of marriage. They married in June 2005, but had been a couple for more than 20 years.
“He wasn’t my first kiss,” she told the mag. “But he was my first lots of other things.”
The duo, who are parents to 4-year-old son, Julian, seemed to be having relationship problems following Robin’s controversial performance with Miley Cyrus at the MTV Video Music Awards last August, in which the pop star danced provocatively on the married man.
When news of their breakup broke, Robin was on tour — and during his tour, he made it clear he wanted to win back his wife.
Unfortunately, his actions didn’t mirror his statements.
As Life & Style recently reported, an insider told the mag the singer invited 10 women back to his marital home after a night out at 1Oak nightclub in West Hollywood on April 19.
“Robin didn’t force anything, but he made it clear he wanted to have sex with everyone there,” the insider says. “He was drunk and clearly enjoying himself.
“All of the girls were sitting on his bed; some of them were naked, and he asked each to kiss him on the lips,” a second insider tells Life & Style.
“He kissed five of them in a row. Eventually most people left, but some stayed behind. It was all uncomfortable to watch.”
