The former Growing Pains star Thicke is trying to coach the Blurred Lines vocalist on how to get her back, the couple split last month following an eight year marriage. A source said:
”Robin‘s convinced that his smooth-talking dad – despite his own chequered romantic history – could help him win back his wife.”
It has been said that Alan and Patton have a close bond, and she and Robin share a three year old son together called Julian and he has put such an effort to win her love back. The source added:
”Paula adores Alan and he adores her. He admitted he made a mess of his own love life and caused pain for his family with divorces.
”But he told Paula he believes she and Robin have the strength to get through this and save their union.”
Alan was once married to Gloria Loring, in 1970 but they divorced when their son was nine. He was also married to Gina Tolleson and they had a son together, Carter, but they split in 1999, it now seems as if he would like his son to learn from his mistakes. The source told National Enquirer magazine:
”It’s ironic that Alan’s playing marriage counsellor. But he doesn’t want his son to make the same mistakes he made.”
