Microscopic proton two-particle neutron two-hole shell-model calculations have been performed for the nucleus Te8052132. Evidence results for the existence of a weak-coupling pattern obtained by coupling nuclear low-lying levels in Te8252134 and Sn8050130. Electromagnetic properties for the most important low-lying levels in Te8052132 are also calculated and compared with existing experimental data. The limitations of proton two-particle- (neutron two-hole-) core coupling calculations are also exhibited when proton and/or neutron number only deviates from closed shell configurations by a small (±2) number.
