Antonio Sabàto, Jr., 45, and Cheryl Marie, 45, are in the midst of a divorce that has taken a nasty turn, as TMZ reports. Cheryl is allegedly accusing him of drug addiction, and says in court documents seen by the site that she is concerned about their 6-year-old son Antonio Kamakanaalohamaikalani Harvey Sabato III‘s safety. She reportedly claims that Antonio has abused prescription drugs that could include anti-anxiety and sleep disorder medication, and muscle relaxers, as the site claims. So heartbreaking!

The former General Hospital star tells TMZ that he has gone to rehab for “issues with sleeping pills,” and adds that, “Whatever else she says is just a bunch of lies.” Oh, boy! Antonio is reportedly pushing for joint custody of their son, while Cheryl wants sole physical and joint legal custody. Meanwhile, Antonio has announced he is running for Congress in California. He is a passionate supporter of President Donald Trump, 70, and apparently has personal connections to Trump.
