Robin Thicke Opens up About Doing Therapy With Fiancée April Love Geary & Ex-Wife Paula Patton
Singer Robin Thicke recently got candid about going to therapy with his wife-to-be, April Love Geary. Thicke also revealed that he did the same with his former wife, Paula Patton.
Songwriter Robin Thicke opened up about going to therapy with his fiancée and ex-wife and revealed that it is not for everyone. The record producer openly talked about his relationships in an exclusive interview with Us Magazine.
“Therapy is not for everybody all the time, but it definitely opens barriers for us, even to go once or twice, “he told the outlet. The “Sex Therapy” singer added that if you are going through tough times in your relationship, one visit to a therapist can make a difference.
Thicke also noted that therapy has been working for him and Geary and ex-wife Patton since they are co-parenting. "I am a total believer of therapy," said the 43-year-old.
The dad of three also acknowledged that for some people - it might be strenuous to go to therapy weekly or "put that on your schedule" and personally believes that there are times when it is necessary to do so.
Thick further explains that when you have hit a wall and are aware that you have and are in dire need of help, the best way to resolve the issue is to allow a third party to help. The Los Angeles native and Patton met in 1991 and tied the knot in 2005.
After welcoming their first-born son Julian in 2010, they parted ways in 2014. At the time of their separation, a source reportedly informed the outlet that their marriage was on the rocks for quite some time.
45-year-old Patton filed for divorce later that year, and their divorce was finalized in 2015. The pair were reportedly together for 21 years, and after their split, the actress cited irreconcilable differences.
The pair are also going through a rough custody battle of their now 10-year-old son. The mom of one reportedly does not want her son to live with his father because he has a history of domestic abuse.
Thicke and Patton are high school sweethearts as they met when the “Traffik” star was 15 years old and Thicke was 14. Patton always supported him on his music career, and he, in turn, romanced her consistently throughout their love journey.
RELATIONSHIP TIMELINE WITH GEARY
When their divorce was finalized, he started dating the 26-year-old model later that year and made their first public debut as a couple at Cannes Film Festival. The following year, they were pictured together with Geary and his son Julian.
At the time, Geary reportedly noted on social media that she is thankful that she got to spend time with him and his little boy and shared that she is grateful for them. In 2017, the pair announced their baby news in August.
They announced that they are expecting on Instagram, and along with the post, she posted a sonogram and revealed the time of her birth. Geary also showed off her baby bump wearing a bikini.
WELCOMING THEIR KIDS
At the time, she was pregnant with her first child, Mia, a second child for Thicke. The duo got engaged on Christmas Eve in 2018, two months before their second daughter Lola was born.
The four-time Grammy nominee welcomed another baby boy named Luca with Geary in December 2020. The mother of three also took to Instagram to share the news and posted a photo holding her bundle of joy at the hospital, noting that he is a perfect little boy.
THICKE'S UPCOMING ALBUM
Now that her fiancé is a father of four, Thicke opened up about how his father inspired one of his songs, "The Last Song," he wrote on his upcoming album. The album is called On Earth and in Heaven.
Earlier this month, he reportedly revealed on Instagram that one of the songs titled "Lucky Star" was inspired by his dad, Alan, who passed away in 2016, and producer Andre Harrel, who died in May.
Thicke added that it is the last song he wrote for the album, which is also the first track. He further explained that his father and Harrel are his Lucky Stars.
