It's been almost three months since it was announced Paula Patton had split from her singer husband Robin Thicke.
In the June issue of Vanity Fair, the 38-year-old actress talked for the first time about the Blurred Lines hit maker, who raised eyebrows in 2013 by openly flirting with other women soon after he let Miley Cyrus grind on him at the MTV Music Video Awards.
'We've known each other since we were teenagers,' the beauty opened up to the publication, which also printed a sizzling photo of the star that showed her estranged spouse what he was missing. 'All I can tell you is there's a deep love there - always was, and always will be.'

The Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol star met Robin when she was only 15-years-old.
They didn't wed until eight years ago, however.
The couple have a son Julian, who is aged three.
She recalled the 37-year-old sang Jodeci's Forever My Lady before they shared their first kiss in her parents' living room.
She told the monthly, which had Jon Hamm on its cover, 'He wasn't my first kiss but he was my first lots of other things.'
For her glamorous photo by Ralph Mecke, which ran in the magazine's Spotlight section, the Deja Vu actress wore nothing but a pair of pale pink Eres underpants, a beige fur Givenchy jacket and hot pink pointy Louboutin pumps.
The jacket opened to show her bare chest as she propped herself up with one hand while her legs rested on a white and turquoise green table.
Her hair was teased and sprayed Valley Of The Dolls style and she wore cotton candy colored lipstick.
