Paula Patton and Robin Thicke’s 3-year-old son Julian was reportedly in a car accident during a paparazzi chase in Los Angeles on Thursday. The toddler was riding in the backseat of Patton’s Range Rover with the actress’ mother and assistant when the incident occurred, according to Entertainment Tonight
The family was reportedly being followed by photographers at the time of the crash. No injuries were reported. Gossip Cop has reached out to Patton’s rep for more information.
The accident comes the same day Thicke told paparazzi in Washington, D.C., that he wants to get back together with his estranged wife. Earlier this week, Thicke, 36, and Patton, 38, announced in a joint statement that they are separating after nearly nine years of marriage.
"Robin wanted to save their marriage, but it was Paula's choice and she ended it," said an insider close to the pair. "Robin does not want this divorce."
The "Blurred Lines" crooner stepped out for the first time post-split on Thursday as he arrived in Washington D.C. to gear up for his next show. I'm "trying to get her back," he said of Patton to TMZ cameras. The Baggage Claim actress, meanwhile, was most recently spotted in L.A. without her wedding ring on Feb. 26
