Robin Thicke and Paula Patton have attended their first therapy session with their son, according to a new report.

The Blurred Lines hitmaker and 41-year-old actress are doing everything they can to keep their six-year-old son Julian’s ‘best interests at heart’ by having joint meetings with a therapist after the Baggage Claim star unsuccessfully sought an emergency order to restrict her ex-husband’s contact with the little boy because the youngster had complained he had been spanked with excessive force by his father.

A source told PEOPLE magazine: ‘While Julian has remained in his mother’s care, both parties are working with a therapist who is advising on Julian’s best interest. On Friday, Robin called police after Paula allegedly violated their custody order.

The 39-year-old singer was accompanied by LA County Sheriff’s deputies to his ex-wife’s Malibu home along with a copy of their agreement, after she ignored his calls to take Julian for the night, but he still left without the youngster, according to TMZ. The showdown came a day after a court refused to limit his custody to daytime monitored visits.

When the officers went inside Paula’s house to speak with Julian on Friday, the youngster reportedly told them he was scared of his father and didn’t want to go with him, adds the website.
The deputies told Robin they would not take the child against his will.
