Paula Patton has found herself since her split with longtime lover Robin Thicke. During an interview on The Meredith Vieira Show, the actress said “I’m really, like a real woman now.” She went on to explain, she went from living with her parents to moving in with Robin.
Patton, 39, announced their separation in February 2014. Despite the public apologies and song dedications made by Thicke, she filed for divorce in October of last year.
Earlier this month she revealed to Good Morning America, the couple’s four-year-old son has helped her through the divorce. “I mean, the honest truth is, it has been challenging, but it’s been a year of growth, lots of healing, learning about all new things.”
Congrats to Paula on finding herself and her new strength. Sometimes you have to be knocked down in order to lift yourself up.
