Paula Patton At The Emmys

Paula Patton resurfaced at the Emmys this week after nearly six months avoiding the public light. Patton hadn’t been seen since March when she attended the Independent Spirit Awards and Vanity Fair’s Oscar party. Patton seemingly has few active projects on the docket these days. The film Warcraft based on the popular MMORPG is in post-production, and she’s only rumored to be reprising her role as Jane Carter in Mission Impossible 5.

Paula Patton and Robin Thicke

Patton’s disappearance likely has something to do with her very public split from high school sweetheart and husband of nine years, Robin Thicke. Allegations of Thicke cheating had something to do with their break-up while Thicke’s attempts to get his wife back has led Thicke to devote love songs to her in concert and release an album called Paula featuring the single “Get Her Back” which had a nearly naked Thicke cavorting with a Paul Patton stand-in while presumed private text messages (or at least representations of theirs) popped on screen.

Paula Album Bombs

Paula was the follow-up to Thicke’s hit Blurred Lines, which sold 177,000 copies in the United States in its first week and debuted at the number 1 spot in the Billboard 200 chart. Paula on the other hand debuted at number 9, selling 24,000 copies in the United States, sold 550 in Canada, 530 in the UK and 138 in Australia. Critics generally were mixed, though they all decried the album for being rushed and giving out too much information about Thicke and Patton’s personal life.
