Rumors that singer Robin Thicke is cheating on his wife have picked up steam again. After Thicke’s controversial performance with Miley Cyrus at the MTV VMAs, a photo surfaced of Thicke getting too close with yet another woman who isn’t his wife. While the woman in the photo, Lana Scolaro, didn’t originally have much to say about the photo other than it wasn’t fake, she is now spilling all.
The photo appears to be just another fan photo at first glance, but a mirror in the background shows Thicke cupping Scolaro’s bottom. The photo caught steam last week after a woman spotted Scolaro’s photo on Instagram and posted it to Twitter and tagged Paula Patton, Thicke’s wife. Thicke and Patton have been married since 2005 and have a son together. The image sent Twitter users into a frenzy, some claiming the photo was fake while others accused Thicke of cheating on his wife.

After Scolaro’s identity was discovered, she verified that the photo was real, but didn’t say much about the circumstances surrounding the photo until now. Scolaro told Life & Style magazine that more happened between the two than the obvious butt groping. She says that the two hooked up at a party after the VMAs, with Thicke’s wife just a few feet away.
“I don’t think he cared what she thought,” Scolaro said. “I was with him the whole night!” Scolaro describes how she and Thicke previously met at another party and how she originally brushed Thicke off because she knew she was married. The 20-year-old claims, however, that Thicke was persistent and that Patton didn’t seem to care at all. The “Lost Without U” singer hasn’t addressed the allegations, but a representative for his wife has denied the reports, saying that Scolaro is “just a girl looking for attention.”
Whether or not Scolaro’s story has much truth to it remains to be seen, but the rumors certainly haven’t affected Thicke and Patton’s public relationship. After vacationing in Florida with their 3-year-old son Julian, the couple was spotted engaging in a little PDA at a release party for “Blurred Lines” on Wednesday.
