Thicke in ‘groping’ scandal

Robin Thicke

Robin Thicke appears to be groping a woman’s backside in a newly-released photo.

The 36-year-old, who is married to actress Paula Patton, was photographed with an unidentified blonde in front of a mirror in the image published by Radar Online.

While the pair smile at the camera, their illuminated reflection appears to show Robin putting his hand almost under the woman’s mini dress.

The photo, first published on social media, is believed to have been taken at Manhattan’s 1-OAK nightclub, where the crooner hosted an after-party following his performance at Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards.

Robin took the stage for a duet of his hit single Blurred Lines with Miley Cyrus, causing controversy as the 20-year-old pop star stripped down to flesh-toned underwear.

Miley then ‘twerked’ against Robin and rubbed his crotch with an oversized foam finger.

Robin’s wife, Paula, was by his side after the controversial performance and the pair were seen smiling throughout the evening.

The 37-year-old Mission: Impossible actress also attended the 1-OAK event, but was reportedly mingling with friends across the room when the photo was taken.

The couple, who married in 2005 and share a three-year-old son, are currently on vacation in Miami.

Photos of the family getaway show the trio happily walking on the beach and going for a swim.

A spokesperson for the star has yet to issue comment.
