In the light of shocking allegations about her ex-husband Robin Thicke’s drug-related indiscretions, a Los Angeles judge on Thursday granted actress Paula Patton sole custody of the couple’s 6-year-old son Julian pending the outcome of a Feb. 24 hearing, People magazine reported Friday.

The “Blurred Lines” singer will be allowed three supervised visits a week with his son but otherwise is forbidden by a temporary restraining order from approaching either Ms. Patton, son Julian or Ms. Patton’s mother, Joyce Patton.

The court order came a day after Ms. Patton claimed that Mr. Thicke once brought his drug dealer to their son’s birthday party, according to court documents obtained by People.

“In April 2015, Robin held Julian’s birthday party, and I attended without incident (I did note, however, that Robin had invited his drug dealer ‘Guido’ to the party, which I thought was highly inappropriate. I was aware of who Guido was since Robin would procure drugs through him during our marriage),” Ms. Patton wrote in the court filing, reported People magazine Friday.

In the same filing, Ms. Patton alleged that the couple’s nearly 10-year-long marriage was plagued by Mr. Thicke’s ongoing drug addiction, repeated instances of marital infidelity and instances of domestic abuse.

Mr. Patton’s attorney pushed back against the allegations against her client.

Paula never reported any domestic violence until she was in a position of contempt by violating the custody orders,” Thicke attorney Angela Pierce di Donato told People in a written statement. “DCFS [The Department of Child and Family Services] asked both Paula and Robin to drug test. Robin agreed and submitted to his test, but Paula refused to test. Infidelity has nothing to do with custody. She is attempting to throw anything at him to hurt him, but Robin’s focus is their son.”
