So much for an amicable split. After a respectful, joint statement that they were separating, the divorce battle between Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif is turning quite nasty.
During a court hearing regarding custody for their three sons, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and plastic surgeon both went into attack mode.
Fans are used to Maloof's sharp tongue, especially when she is annoyed with her scrubs-sporting hubby. But Nassif claims he was victim to more vicious blows off-camera. His lawyer alleged she was physically violent towards her soon-to-be ex-husband.
The glam housewife had a few damaging allegations of her own. She filed a declaration stating that he had endangered their boys Gavin, Christian, and Colin on several occasions. According to TMZ, one of the incidents happened months ago when Nassif was allegedly drinking while kayaking with his brood. As for the abuse claims, Maloof swears it was her hubby who was violent, not her.
Looks like the low blows aren't just reserved for her catty frenemies. I suppose it's no surprise the pair would start hitting below the belt. A lot of money, pride, and publicity are probably at stake.
Are you surprised the divorce has turned nasty? Who do you believe?
