Paula Patton 'loves' her boyfriend of one month -- who's married to his wife of nearly 20 years

Paula Patton has found love with another woman's husband, according to Page Six.

The actress spoke candidly about her "boyfriend," Zachary Quittman, in a recent interview with Essence, calling it a "suburban romance" that blossomed while their kids played after-school sports together.

The only problem? Also apparently present at those after-school events was his wife.

Patton "paints herself as the jilted woman who was left for another woman," a source says, referencing Patton's split from ex Robin Thicke. "But she's doing the same f--king s--t. She's a hypocrite."

Despite reports that Quittman is a single dad, he's in fact reportedly a father of two who's been with his wife for 20 years. They have not legally separated nor has he removed any of his items from their shared home since moving in with Patton. He relocated to Patton's place when they began dating one month ago.

"When you know, you know," Patton told Essence. "I love him."

Patton and Thicke were together for 21 years before they split amid torrid reports of infidelity and Patton's public allegations of assault.
