Robin Thicke is threatening to take legal action over reports he and estranged wife Paula Patton were involved in a “three-way relationship” with a masseuse.
According to the New York Post’s Page Six, power lawyer Howard E. King fired off a letter to Star Magazine and OK, which wrote that Thicke and Patton were in a “consensual” relationship with a massage therapist named Jasmine that “took a disastrous turn” when “Paula discovered that the masseuse and Robin were carrying on a separate affair behind her back.”
Radar Online even claimed Patton walked in on the pair, literally catching Robin “with his pants down.”
King said in the letter, “Publication of this blatantly false story absent a failure to fully investigate ... will support a finding that the story is published in wanton and reckless disregard of the truth, leading to a finding of malice and the imposition of actual and punitive damages.”
Thicke and Patton announced their separation in February, although the “Blurred Lines” singer – who recently has been the subject of numerous salacious stories about his alleged sex life – has said he hoped they would reconcile. Meanwhile, Patton was seen “getting cozy” with Jeremy Renner at the Independent Spirit Awards in March.
