But while Donna was away, Robert and Elaine grew closer as he taught her how to drive, and sold her his car.

They started an affair, but Elaine refused to get intimate with him until he broke things off with Donna.

Robert finished his relationship with Donna when she returned and kept his new relationship with Elaine on the down low.

A few months into their relationship, the pair got into a car accident after Robert was too busy flirting with Elaine whilst driving.
