This past week, the war between Shannon Beador and her ex David got a lot worse after he not only requested joint custody of their three daughters but also accused the Real Housewives of Orange County star of ‘excessive drinking and alienating him from his kids.’
Now, we have learned that the woman is ready to fight back!
One source told us that ‘Shannon’s done being pushed around by him and she is going to contest every single declaration David made. Things were going really well between them until a few weeks ago when David realized the girls just didn’t want to spend as much time with their dad as they did their mother.’
That’s when he decided to blame this change in the behavior of the daughters on their mom!
He believes Shannon is trying to turn them against him.
‘Since the separation, the children, on several occasions 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,’ David claimed.
In addition to that ‘Shannon’s job [on RHOC] encourages excess drinking and extended travel of which Shannon has chosen to not inform me and make accommodations for the kids to stay with me while she’s away.’
The man is using these allegations as reasons why he should get 50 percent custody rights of their offspring.
‘David’s trying to use this drinking thing as a way to get the courts to side with him and feel sorry for him,’ the source explained.
Finally, David also argued in new documents that his income is a lot lower than Shannon’s supposed $600,000 per year so he should not have to pay her any spousal support.
But the insider thinks ‘David’s lying about his assets and everyone believes he may be hiding some. He’s the owner of a multi-million company.’
