Things have taken an ugly turn in the custody battle between Robin Thicke and ex-wife Paula Patton. Patton alleges the Blurred Lines singer used a pricey sushi meal to bribe a social worker for the Department of Children and Family Services, according to TMZ.

A monitor from the DCFS was required to accompany Thicke and his son Julian, who ostensibly has quite a sophisticated palate, as the six year old’s favorite restaurant is none other than Nobu Malibu.

Patton was none too thrilled with the move to bring the monitor to the sceney spot. For his part, the crooner claims the monitor only drank water and sat at another table.
