Their marriage was engulfed by scandal after an Instagram picture emerged that appeared to show Paula Patton’s husband Robin Thicke groping a 20-year-old’s bottom.
The blonde – later identified as Lara Scolaro – even went on to claim that she passionately kissed the 36-year-old singer at a VMA party last month, where his wife, 37, was also present.
But the couple were determined to prove that any groping is going to remain between the pair of them as they put on a show at his album launch in New York on Wednesday.
The 2 Guns beauty pulled out all the stops in a stunning orange dress with cut-out panels, which she paired with sexy gold stilettos.
Wearing her hair off her face, the mother-of-one was going for all-out sexy.
Chunky gold jewellery completed the look.
Her husband – whose album takes the name Blurred Lines from his controversial single – opted for leather blazer and trousers, with a striped shirt.
And the pair were happy to mug it up for the cameras on the black carpet at No.8 in Manhattan with overt displays of affection.
The couple started dating when they were teenagers in Los Angeles, and married on June 11, 2005.
They have one son, Julian, who is aged three.
Thicke told Prestige magazine that he didn’t know how he would’ve survived without his wife : ‘I don’t know if I would still be alive in some ways if it wasn’t for Paula. She’s been my rock, my muse, my inspiration and I love her. The whole way.’
His wife was also interviewed for the glossy, which features the LA born and raised couple on the cover, and she reiterated just how solid the pair – who have a three-year-old son Julian together – actually are.
She told the publication: ‘We’re best friends. We laugh a lot. But that’s our down time. We do the things you’re supposed to do, like work out – blah, blah, blah, boring, boring. We love to travel together and travel with our child.
‘Get out of the house. Because our house is a mad house. We don’t have normal jobs. So it’s always a work house. Robin makes music at home and my job when I’m not on set always brings people into our home.’
In a new interview with Life & Style magazine, the young blonde says that following the bottom-groping incident, she and Robin went back to the Greenwich Hotel in New York City to attend another after party.
She alleges it was there where they ‘passionately kissed’ while Robin’s wife Paula was elsewhere at the same party.
She explains to the magazine that she believed Robin couldn’t care less about what his wife thought and that he even encouraged Lana to speak to Paula.
‘I don’t think he cared what she thought,’ she tells the magazine. ‘I was with him the whole night!…His hands were everywhere.’
A representative for Paula has since spoken out about the claims, telling Life & Style that Lana is an ‘attention’ seeker.
‘It’s just a girl looking for some attention. Paula and Robin aren’t concerned,’ the statement reads.
In her interview with Life & Style, Lana explains that she had travelled to the VMAs party in a car with both Robin and Paula.
After she emerged from a bathroom inside the hotel suite, she says she and Robin began kissing on the couch.
‘I went to the bathroom, and when I came out he was standing there,’ she explains.
‘He turned off the lights so no one could see us, and he started making out with me. He was grabbing me. He was like, “I want to get you into bed!”‘
Lana says that the pair did not go any further because they were continuously getting ‘interrupted’.
She says that the singer then gave her his number and told her he would see her at New York Fashion Week.
Lana claims that she and Robin had met a week before the awards ceremony at a mutual friend’s party, and when he approached her at the VMAs after party he told her: ‘I just love the fact that you’re so young.’
Ever since that night, Robin has been the center of scrutiny after he was photographed grabbing Lana’s bottom.
The Instagram snap in question shows him groping her backside in a particularly inappropriate manner – a moment captured thanks to the giant mirror behind them.
