Christy and Todd Gibel were the most stable couple of Little Women LA at one point. In just one season, viewers have seen the two go from lovers to enemies.
Christy is seeking an annulment from her husband of five years on the grounds that they never consummated their marriage in the time that they’ve been wed. That’s right, not even when they were allegedly trying for a baby did they have sex — according to the reality star it was all for a storyline!
There is one important reason why Christy is seeking an annulment and not a divorce. It all boils down to money because if she is granted the annulment then she doesn’t have to pay alimony.
Todd, on the other hand, is calling bs on his estranged wife’s claims. He responded to Mcginity’s filing and Radar Online has all the details on it.
He explained to the court that he handled a lot of his ex’s dealings because she ‘wasn’t good with computers.’ He also revealed how he played a part in getting Christy her celebrity status.

Tonight on the #Finale of #LittleWomenLa the rumors are I never loved her and only married her for fame and the money that came with. It's also been said I brought nothing into the relationship, sat around unemployed, and road on the back of her "celebrity status." That I stole her money and defrauded her. Well, I've never been a big fan of rumors. Facts are more my thing; especially ones that can be backed up. I've never claimed to be perfect, but I'm sure as hell not the monster certain powers to be are trying to portray me as in the media. Yesterday I officially filed my response to the annulment allegations with the court. In them you will find how I personally funded the beginning of our life together by taking a $22,000 loan against my 401K. How we used the money to move to the home town of the kids father so joint custody could be obtained. How I took another $18,000 against my 401K to help pay the mounting lawyer fees for the kids. How I was paid for every episode I was on as well as getting paid equally for Couples Retreat. How all the fraud allegations are a joke and that I can prove it. And lastly how YES, we had sex. How else do you come to realize you have fertility problems? Now let's see if @ginabacch & @teresax333 over at @radaronline have anything to say about that or they just continue to drink the kool-aid. #TruthCameOut
‘The first three seasons of Little Women: LA followed not just Petitioner singularly, but also our relationship leading up tour wedding, our struggles to conceive a child naturally (which by the way can only be done by us having intercourse), our failed attempt to conceive a child through fertility treatments, and our exploration into trying to adopt a child. These struggles along with others also led us to appearing on Little Women: LA Couples Retreat, which could only have been done together.’
Gibel is indeed asking for spousal support.
This comes just days after he called Mcginity and her new boyfriend out on social media while chatting with fans.
Do you believe that Christy should be granted an annulment? Does Todd deserve spousal support?
