She announced her split from Robin Thicke earlier this year, but Paula Patton says that she still deeply loves the "Blurred Lines" singer.

In the June 2014 issue of Vanity Fair magazine, the "Baggage Claim" babe admits that she has a strong history with Thicke and will love him forever, despite their recent relationship struggles.

Paula began dating Robin when they were teenagers and she told the mag that after their first kiss, he started singing Jodeci's "Forever My Lady" in her parents' living room. "He wasn't my first kiss," she added, "but he was my first lots of other things."

The pair tied the knot in 2005 and share son Julian, 3, together.

As for getting back together, Paula didn't specifically touch on the issue, but said, "We've known each other since we were teenagers. All I can tell you is there's a deep love there—always was, and always will be."
