After having divorced former husband Robin Thicke in 2015, Paula Patton is finally moving on and establishing a relationship with a new man. However, her pairing with realtor Zach Quittman has ignited a maelstrom of criticism, as Patton's new beau is currently married to another woman. Social media has been quick to call the Warcraft actress hypocritical, especially since she ended her ten-year union with Thicke after it was revealed he had cheated on her. 

However, Quittman took to PEOPLE to defend himself and corroborate their relationship. "We were totally separated before I moved on," reveals Quittman, adding that he and his wife have parted ways a while ago. 

The real estate mogul also addresses reports that claim his ex-lover was caught off guard after it was revealed he was moving on. "Obviously there’s three sides to every story and I’m not pointing the finger or saying anyone’s wrong, but we were definitely separated before I moved on."

Patton proudly exclaimed that Quittman was her boyfriend whilst doing some promotional work for her latest cinematic endeavour Traffik
