Robin Thicke and Paula Patton have been under the scrutiny of the public eye ever since Thicke let Miley Cyrus twerk on him at the MTV VMAs. He was also later photographed grabbing socialite Lana Scolaro’s butt. While fans are busy questioning Thicke’s marriage, he recently spoke with Star about his union with Patton and explained that they thrive on strange balance of function and dysfunction.
“[It’s] the greatest love of the century, and the most functional, dysfunctional marriage in Hollywood,” said Thicke, according to RadarOnline.
Thicke shares that he knew Patton was special from the day he first met her when they were teens. And after having been together for 20 years and married for eight, he explains that their love is something that keeps evolving and getting better with time.
“As a relationship progresses, you fall in love again in so many deeper ways,” said Thicke. “You realize that you need each other and you can’t live without each other.”
Despite the rumors and allegations of infidelity with Scolaro, Thicke claims that he and Patton are still more than happy in their marriage.
“My only comment about the so-called scandalous photo would be that my wife and I are perfectly in love and very happily married,” he said.
