Judge denies Robin Thicke’s request to modify visitation agreement with son

A judge in Los Angeles shut down the “Lost Without U” singer, Robin Thicke’s, request to alter his visitation agreement with his 6-year-old son, Julian Fuego, amid his custody battle with his ex-wife and actress, Paula Patton.

People reports that the court ordered the 39-year-old to stay away from his ex-wife, 41, including her mother, last month after she claimed he abused drugs and that he was physically abusive towards her and their son.

He was permitted to see his son three times per week on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday for a few hours; however, a “court-appointed monitor must be present.”

Thicke became irate last Friday after a monitor cut his visit short with his son, determining that Julian didn’t want to visit his father. The following day, it was alleged that the “Blurred Lines” singer took his son to Kids World, but the monitor pulled the plug on that visitation early as well.

The son of late Growing Pains actor Alan Thicke took action. His legal team requested “no monitor, a change in monitor, or a ruling that said the monitor couldn’t make changes to the visitation” but the judge denied his request.

After Thicke’s request to modify his visitation agreement, Patton requested for “Thicke to have only two nonconsecutive visits per week for no more than two hours per visit,” but the judge denied her request as well.

According to a source close to the situation, “Paula did not have to request that the court grant Robin court-appointed monitored visits with Julian three days a week but did so with the belief that maintaining a relationship with the father in the presence of a monitor to ensure his safety and well-being would be in Julian’s long-term best interest.”

“Stability and structure are of paramount importance for a child in Julian’s emotional state right now.” “A change in monitor would have disrupted any trust he built and would make him feel even more vulnerable with Robin. That would not have been in anyone’s best interest, including Robin’s, if his goal is to heal his relationship with his son. Continuously trying to change the arrangement or forcing a child to be with you against his will is not a way to repair a relationship and only serves to damage it further.”

Patton has sole custody of Julian until the former couple’s next court date on February 24.
