Robin Thicke: Paula Didn’t Take Him to the Prom Because She was Ashamed of Dating a White Guy

By  |  44 Comments


Singer Robin Thicke and his wife Paula Patton have a relationship that is highly publicized and appears to be good.  They’re one of the hottest couples in Hollywood right now, and both are in high demand.

This has led the media to ask the two about their past together and how their love came to be.  During a recent interview on the Howard Stern radio show, Thicke gave some interesting insights into his past with his wife.   The topic of their interracial relationship came up and Robin told the truth about how Paula appeared to be ashamed of him for his race.

Thicke says that for a very long time, he was his wife’s “secret.”  The two were dating in highschool, but she didn’t want anyone to know that she was dating a white man.   When it came time to go to the prom Thicke says that Paula ditched him to avoid the embarrassment.

“The funny thing is, in high school she didn’t take me to prom, her prom, because she didn’t want everyone to know she was with a white guy because she was president of the Black Student Union,” said Thicke. “I was a secret. She didn’t want to show up with a white guy. Funny right?”

The couple has been married since 2005 and each of them has risen through the ranks to live among the rich and famous.   They also say that the world’s perception of interracial relationships has changed over time.

“I think that times are changing. The new generation doesn’t feel the same way as the last generation,” Thicke said. “It’s mostly the older people who have those thoughts.”

    I am just glad that white men are marrying the women they have loved or made love to, since day one. One of my ancestors made one of his slaves his “wife” all their lives, but never proclaimed their relationship in public. He even taught his children by her to read and write living in Virginia at a time when it was against the law to teach a black to read and write. When he died, he left considerable lands and properties to his mulatto children in his will. I believe the general public believed he was an “unmarried” man with no issues until the will told another story.

    I would caution you not to broadly generalize about one particular category of people because it is not all encompassing when describing the unique actions of one individual. White men did not always marry those who they “made love to” as is the case with many different rapes involving slaves at the time and children were abandoned as a result of it.

      Thanks Chris! Unfortunately there are still some white men who see women of color in secret, or never marry them. It is a good thing to see those who will step up but they are still few.

    I love them too. I think what is becoming more acceptable is white men dating and marrying black women. We’ve seen black men and white women since forever, but black women/white men is harder for society to accept I think. Also black women didnt want to date outside their race. Now they see that men of other races can and are good partners.
