Paula Maxine Patton was born in Los Angeles, California. Living across from 20th Century Fox studios exposed her early on to the entertainment industry. While attending Alexander Hamilton High School she participated in stage productions and developed her love of acting. Following graduation, she enrolled in the University of Southern California Film School’s three-month documentary production assignment making documentaries for PBS while doing production work on the Discovery Health Channel series Medical Diaries. While she enjoyed being behind-the-camera directing, acting is something she also craved doing on-screen work despite enjoying producer and director roles so she decided to attend the University of Southern California’s film school despite enjoying this career move.

Although they loved one another deeply, things did not seem to be going smoothly in their marriage. Rumors of an intense sexual life emerged between them; there have been reports alleging Thicke’s abusive treatment towards Paula.

They made efforts to repair their relationship, participating in co-parenting therapy to learn how to communicate better between themselves. Unfortunately, however, their turbulent union eventually resulted in divorce proceedings.

Patton eventually won temporary sole custody of their son Julian Fuego after Paula filed charges of infidelity and physical abuse against her husband, although he denied them.
