The ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ stars’ surprise split has turned into a nasty custody battle, and how Adrienne is accusing her soon-to-be-ex of child abuse! Read on for more details.
Business woman Adrienne Maloof and her plastic surgeon husband Paul Nassif were a fan-favorite couple on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Although their playful bickering made for entertaining TV, their real-life custody battle has become an all-out war, and now Adrienne has temporary custody of their three boys.
The Real Housewife was awarded custody of her sons on Sept. 19 after telling a judge her estranged husband choked one of her kids the previous week, TMZ is reporting.
Adrienne’s lawyer filed a declaration in court in which she claimed Paul choked one of their sons around the Adam’s apple while two of his sons were kicking each other in the backseat of his car on their way home from school.
Adrienne also claimed that later that day when the two boys were taking a bath together, they began fighting again and Paul grabbed one of the boys, spanked his bare bottom, and threw him in the corner.
Neither Paul nor his lawyer were told about the hearing, but he denies all of the allegations.
“This smacks of underhandedness,” his lawyer Lisa Meyer told TMZ. “Adrienne wasn’t even present when this allegedly occurred.”
“It is a sad day when parents have to stoop to the level of making false allegations against another parent,” she added, and said Adrienne’s filing was “gamesmanship at its worst.”
Adrienne and Paul filed for separation on July 30.
