The legal war between Shannon Beador and her former husband David is just beginning! As part of their custody battle over their three kids, the man has accused the Real Housewives of Orange County star of ‘excess drinking,’ as well as alienating him from their daughters.
The court papers prove David has requested shared custody of the girls in addition to accusing the mother of three of keeping him away from the teens.
David wrote that ‘Since the separation, the children, on several occasions have actually refused to talk or see me. This behavior’s been tolerated in Shannon’s home and isn’t in the best interests of the children…Shannon’s not fostering or encouraging a healthy father-child relationship.’
Not only that but he also claimed that RHOC has encouraged Shannon to consume too much alcohol as well as leaving her little time to spend with the girls.
‘Shannon’s employment encourages excess drinking and extended travel to which Shannon’s chosen not to inform me and make accommodations for the children to stay with me while she’s away.’
The documents reveal that as far as David knows, Shannon does not earn $400,000 per year as she has declared, but up to $600,000 while he makes a lot less money.
As a result, David stated that he is against giving Shannon spousal support and expects her to pay her own legal fees.
As fans of the reality TV show know already, the pair put an end to their marriage back in September, two years after David confessed to having a longtime affair.
Since the split, David has already moved on with a much younger single mother named Lesley Cook, and the two have been showing off their romance on social media a lot, rubbing their happiness in Shannon’s face.
