Jennifer Masche filed for separation just six days after her husband, Bryan, was arrested on domestic violence charges. Now she’s asking for full custody of their six kids as well as child support. Do you think the kids are better off away from Bryan?
Bryan and Jennifer Masche’s six-year marriage crumbled pretty much immediately after Bryan got arrested in Arizona on Sept. 11 for disorderly conduct and threatening domestic abuse. The couple is currently living apart and Jennifer is taking steps to protect herself and her family’s future. RadarOnline.com is reporting that the WE tv star is seeking both sole legal custody and primary physical custody of their six 3-year-old children — Savannah, Bailey, Grant, Cole, Molli and Blake. The 29-year-old is also seeking child support but requested that neither she nor Bryan pay spousal support. According to a source, the couple’s fear that they would be the next Jon and Kate Gosselin helped to destroy their marriage!
“They didn’t want to become the next Jon and Kate Gosselin and this thought really took a toll on their marriage,” the insider told RadarOnline.com. “Bryan and Jennifer saw what happened to them and it weighed heavily on their minds because they didn’t want their lives to turn into a media circus.”
During a visit to his in-laws, Sue and Bob Simbric, Bryan flipped out and went so far as to threatened to “flatten” his father-in-law on Sept. 11. Things got worse when the police arrived on the scene, and the hot-head refused to cooperate. Due to his temper tantrum Bryan, 32, will be back in court on Thursday (Oct. 7) to face charges of two counts of disorderly conduct for domestic violence, one count of resisting arrest and one count of threatening domestic violence.
“Bryan is absolutely devastated about what has happened and he’s still going to counseling but at the moment Jennifer doesn’t want to go with him,” a source said. “It seems that she thinks the grass is greener on the other side right now but Bryan is a good guy despite his arrest. In her heart Jennifer must know that because whenever she went on weekend trips she had no problems leaving the kids with him. If she really was that fearful of this man would she potentially endanger her six beautiful children?”
There are no plans for WE to resume filming Raising Sextuplets anytime soon and we think that’s the best for the kids. They need time to process their parents’ split and they certainly don’t need cameras in their faces while they’re figuring things out.
