LOS ANGELES – Robin Thicke’s ex-wife is accusing the singer of tampering with a court order in an attempt to get her arrested in their bitter custody dispute.

The allegations are made by Paula Patton’s attorneys in a court filing released Thursday.

They came a day before a judge is scheduled to begin a hearing on the actress’ allegations Thicke was abusive during their marriage and toward their 6-year-old son.

In late January, a judge issued a temporary restraining order requiring Thicke to stay away from Patton and to have only supervised visits with their son.

Thicke has denied he has abused his son and his former attorney has said there was no basis for Patton’s domestic violence allegations and called them retaliatory.

Thicke’s attorney did not immediately return messages seeking comment Thursday.
