Robin Thicke and Paula Patton have decided it's better to get along than wage war, and that's why they are on the verge of settling the mega custody war.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us, Robin and Paula are far along in working out the details of their custody arrangement.

Cops have been called and accusations hurled, including Paula's claim Robin was trying to influence the monitor by giving him free sushi ... something Robin denied.

They were scheduled to continue their legal battle Monday, but the case was taken off calendar.

Matt Barnes Sweetest Custody War Ever

2/27/2017 12:55 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Matt Barnes says he's TRYING LIKE HELL to be a good dad -- but his ex-wife is blocking him from spending precious quality time with his 8-year-old twin boys.

His ex-wife, however, says Barnes is completely full of crap.

It's all in new legal docs obtained by TMZ Sports ... in which Barnes is begging the judge to completely overhaul his custody arrangement with Gloria Govan.

Look, the point of the legal docs is actually sweet ... two parents who both really want to be involved with their kids. The problem is both sides claim the other parent is impossible to get along with.

Barnes says he's offered to pay for all of the expenses to fly the kids out to him when he's on the road, but Gloria keeps throwing wrenches in the plans and it makes the kids sad.

Gloria says she tries to make plans with Matt but he always makes last-minute requests and it's hard to get on the same page.

CAN'T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG?!

The two are set to meet in court in April -- in the meantime, Matt did get a chance to hang with the kids earlier this month and everyone looked happy.

Lisa Marie Presley's estranged husband is having regular visits with their children -- even though they're in protective custody -- but we've learned it's a deal both parents struck.

Michael Lockwood met his 8-year-old twin girls Wednesday at the beach in Malibu. Sources connected with the case tell TMZ ... it was the second time he'd seen his daughters this week. We're told a court-appointed monitor, seen here in red, was present both times.

As we've reported ... the girls are staying with their grandma, Priscilla Presley, while DCFS investigates the "pictures and disturbing videos" Lisa Marie says she found on Michael's computer.

Robin Thicke and Son Here's the Water-Guzzling Court Monitor

2/23/2017 5:29 PM PST

Pics have surfaced of Robin Thicke and his son, Julian, at Nobu in Malibu ... the lunch Paula Patton claims was essentially an attempt to bribe the Dept. of Children and Family Services with sushi.

As we reported, Robin's team has scoffed at Paula's claim, and says the monitor -- Mike, who's wearing the hat -- sat at a separate table and only drank water. The monitor is required by the judge to be present the entire time Robin is with his 6-year-old son.

We're told the monitor was sitting at a table with someone from the Dept. of Children and Family Services, who was actually there to monitor the monitor after Paula complained about him. He too, we're told, only drank water.

As for why they went to Nobu ... it's Julian's fav.

Paula Patton Robin Wined and Dined Our DCFS Social Worker

2/23/2017 11:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Paula Patton just made an explosive claim in her raging custody war with Robin Thicke ... taking the social worker charged with protecting their son to a fancy dinner.

Paula just filed docs -- obtained by TMZ -- alleging Robin and his attorney initiated a bunch of back-channel communication with the Department of Children and Family Services staff ... including a dinner where Robin allegedly wined and dined a case worker. She's even specific, claiming it was an expensive sushi dinner.

According to the docs ... Paula's also accusing Robin of falsely reporting to law enforcement she had kidnapped Julian. She says Robin tampered with the custody order to make it look like she was kidnapping their son.

Paula thinks Robin was trying to embarrass and humiliate her by having cops arrest her in front of Julian.

TMZ broke the story ... DCFS is investigating claims Robin has engaged in excessive physical discipline and he can only see Julian with a court appointed monitor.

Robin's camp tells us Paula's claim is bogus ... yes, he went to Nobu with Julian and the DCFS worker accompanied them because the judge ordered that a monitor be present for all visits. But the rep says the DCFS worker did not eat or even sit at their table. The rep also says Robin only contacted police once last month when Paula had gone MIA for 10 days.

Robin Thicke Paula Patton Cries Technical Foul In Custody War

2/21/2017 10:58 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Robin Thicke has just lost his main lawyer in his custody war with Paula Patton, because a lawyer who worked in the firm that once represented Paula now works at the firm that represents Robin.

Robin has been represented by attorney Larry Ginsberg, a partner at Harris, Ginsberg. A law firm that once represented Paula in the custody fight employed a lawyer who jumped ship and moved over to Harris, Ginsberg.

During a court hearing Tuesday, Larry Ginsberg made it clear ... the lawyer in question has no involvement in the Patton/Thicke case, but the judge felt there was always the chance of water cooler talk so Ginsberg is now off the case.

We're told Robin still has legal representation from other firms in a war that continues to rage.

The sources say Paula was an hour late and when she arrived she refused to give Julian to the monitor.  Our Paula sources say the monitor arrived at 3:13 PM and she arrived exactly on time at 3:30 PM.

Sources connected with Paula say Robin violated the restraining order and was feet from Paula when she arrived with her son. They say Julian decided he didn't want to go with his dad and asked her to call 911.

We're told Paula's people called the cops, who came to the scene but by the time they got there Paula and Julian had left. When the deputies arrived, our Robin sources say the officers told him a black SUV resembling Paula's had gotten in an accident. He freaked out and left to find the SUV.  

Our Paula sources say she was not in an accident.

Madonna Adoption Could Have Been Derailed Over Rocco Custody Fight

2/13/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Madonna had multiple good reasons to end her custody war over Rocco ... if she didn't, her bid to adopt two kids from Malawi would have come to a grinding halt.

The judge who green lit Madonna's adoption last week spent a long time understanding the circumstances surrounding her custody dispute with ex-hubby Guy Ritchie ... so says an official from the Malawi courts. We're told the dispute was of "paramount concern" because the judge didn't want the adopted kids thrown into a "toxic" family environment.

Since the case settled and all seemed copacetic with Guy, the judge gave the thumbs-up.

As we reported, Rocco bailed on Madonna a year ago during her tour and moved to London to be with Guy. Rocco now spends the school year in London and summers in NYC.

A court-appointed guardian will travel to the U.S. and evaluate the family dynamic before the adoption's finalized.

Steve Francis I'm Single, Baby ... Divorce Granted

2/12/2017 12:05 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Look out ladies, ex-NBA star/accused jewelry thief Steve Francis is officially a single man ... TMZ Sports has learned.

The 39-year-old had been locked in a messy divorce with the mother of his 2 kids for years -- but now we've learned the 11 year union is finally over ... but there are some strict rules regarding the kids.

Francis will get partial custody -- mostly on the weekends -- but he's on very thin ice when it comes to substance abuse.

The judge says he is "permanently" prohibited from using drugs or alcohol within 12 hours before or during his time with the kids. If he violates the deal, the judge could take away custody.

Francis has had all sorts of problems over the last few years -- he's facing drunk driving charges, his chain was snatched at a rap concert and he's accused of stealing thousands of dollars of jewelry from a parked car.
