Singer Robin Thicke and actress Paula Patton had what seemed to be an amicable divorce almost two years ago, but a judge recently denied Patton’s request to change the joint custody agreement to co-parent their 6-year-old son, Julian.

In legal documents obtained by, Patton has “become concerned about [Robin]’s drinking and drug use, as well as forms of punishment he is using to discipline Julian” over the past year. She claims he spanked their son. Also in her filed claim to change the agreement, she said that Thicke showed up drunk to a school event and smoked weed in front of him.

Thicke clapped back saying the claims aren’t true and that Patton “holds residual anger” towards him because he and his family “would not permit her or her family” to attend the funeral of his late father, Alan Thicke.

In the custody agreement, Thicke gets to see his son every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, but he says he hasn’t seen him since New Year’s Eve. Thicke did say he spoke with his son on January 9.

#RobinThicke está sendo acusado de agredir o próprio filho, Julian, de 6 anos. Segundo o ‘TMZ’, o garoto disse à mãe, #PaulaPatton, e a pessoas do colégio que o pai “lhe dá socos frequentemente”. O cantor, entretanto, nega as acusações e diz que a ex está contra ele por não ter sido convidada para o funeral do ex-sogro, #AlanThicke. “Paula não tinha uma boa relação com meu pai e sempre fazia comentários negativos. Sendo assim, ela não foi bem-vinda em seu funeral”. O processo segue em aberto na justiça norte-americana.

We just hope this once happy couple can squash the drama and co-parent their son.

TELL US: Do you believe spanking a child is an appropriate method of discipline?
