Looks like lines of truth were seriously blurred with yesterday's ménage à trois madness involving Robin Thicke and Paula Patton's marriage!
Robin is threatening to take legal action over yesterday's report that he and his actress wife were involved in a “three-way relationship” with a massage therapist.
The duo's lawyer Howard E. King has allegedly sent a letter to Star Magazine and OK! threatening legal action, after they reported that the hubby and wife team were in a polyamorous tryst that went sour because Robin fell for the other woman!
In the letter to the mag, the legal team explained:
"On behalf of Mr. Thicke, as well as [the alleged masseuse], we categorically deny every assertion of fact posited in your email [asking for comment] and are certain there can be no reliable, trustworthy source of any such story, given its gross deviation from the truth. Any purported source of such a story is lying."
"Publication of this blatantly false story absent a failure to fully investigate the truth combined with reliance on what has to be a flimsy source, will support a finding that the story is published in wanton and reckless disregard of the truth, leading to a finding of malice and the imposition of actual and punitive damages."
They better get their facts straight, for real!
Even though the couple is still technically separated, Robin continues to profess his love and forgiveness to Paula for his relationship wrong doing.
Guess this means he's prepared to lawyer up in defense of Miz Patton's reputation — which is totally awesome!
The couple hasn't commented yet, but they'll have to if the lawyers need more than a threat to get the story exsponged!!
