Soul star Robin Thicke left his wife Paula Patton "distraught" after pranking the actress and telling her he'd crashed her car, only to surprise the beauty with a brand new vehicle instead.
The Lost Without U singer admits the white lie almost made Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol stunner Patton tear up - until he presented her with the keys to her new ride.
He tells America's People magazine, "I lied and told my wife I totalled her car. She was distraught, but when I took her to the garage to see it, there was a brand new car I had just bought her instead!"
