Robin Thicke might not be ready to call time on his long marriage to Paula Patton, but the actress may have already moved on. The “2 Guns” beauty seemed quite cozy with fellow actor Jeremy Renner while backstage at the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica, Calif., on March 1.

This was the 38-year-old’s first public appearance since she and Thicke announced their separation. Patton stunned in a sheer yellow Lorena Sarbu dress and Christian Louboutin shoes. While posing for pictures with Renner, the two looked quite comfortable around each other, and he even placed his hand on her leg, reports Radar Online.  

After nine years of marriage, Patton and Thicke announced their decision to split last week. “We will always love each other and be best friends; however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time," they said in a joint statement to People magazine. But it seems it was not mutual at all. At his most recent concert in Virginia, Thicke dedicated one of his love songs, “Lost Without U,” to Patton, telling the audience, “For y'all that don't know, me and my wife separated, but I'm trying to get my girl back. She's a good woman.”

Ever since his raunchy VMA performance with Miley Cyrus last year, Thicke has been dealing with marriage controversy. Shortly after, Thicke was thought to have crossed the line with a young female, after a picture surfaced on the Internet showing the 36-year-old crooner smiling as he grabbed college student Lana Scolaro's butt.

The blonde had a short dress on, and Thicke’s hand is clearly shown going beneath her skirt. Scolaro even has her head on Thicke’s shoulder and her arms around him. Then just last month, the singer got a bit too close to a beautiful curly-haired woman while performing at a Paris nightclub.

The unidentified woman cozied up to the R&B crooner after his performance at Club 79. At one point, pictures were taken of her putting her arms around Thicke’s neck and whispering in his ear. 

Paula Patton and singer Thicke married in 2005 after dating throughout their teenage years.
