While on a press run for her new film, Traffik, Paula Patton has opened up about her latest love interest, finally moving on after her divorce from childhood sweetheart, Robin Thicke.
While she gushed over new man, Zach Quittman, reports later surfaced that the realtor is still married to another woman. This immediately set social media ablaze, as fans and followers called Patton hypocritical for dating a married man while leaving Thicke for cheating during their marriage.
Quittman took to PEOPLE, however, to defend himself and confirm their relationship, saying, “We were totally separated before I moved on. Obviously, there’s three sides to every story and I’m not pointing the finger or saying anyone’s wrong, but we were definitely separated before I moved on.”
Is it appropriate to date someone who is separated, but not yet divorced?
