Maybe she finally had enough embarrassment. Maybe she found a new guy who wouldn't insist on an open relationship for his part but get mad at her when she wanted an open relationship. My guess is though that after twenty years with Robin Thicke that Paula Patton finally got tired of his pinky rings. I bet the next guy she dates or marries doesn't wear pinky rings. Is there ever a happily ever after if the guy wears pinky rings? In Robin's case he is a wear two kind of guy and is probably sad he doesn't have additional pinky fingers so he can wear even more. The guy is a jerk and she has been with him since high school. I think she wants to grow up and be serious and he wants to be Alan Thicke and find a new Playboy bunny every week until he realizes he better hang on to one so he doesn't die alone.
