Kyle Newman has responded to his estranged wife Jaime King‘s divorce filing and he is requesting full custody of their two kids.
The 44-year-old Fanboys director says that Jaime, 41, is a “chronic drug addict and alcoholic” and he says she refuses to get help for her opioid addictions, according to TMZ.
Kyle staged an intervention on January 12 with 14 of Jaime‘s friends and told her that she needed to get treatment “or the kids and I need to leave for their own safety.” He says she checked into a rehab facility in Utah, but left shortly after.
Jaime was filming her Netflix series Black Summer in Canada in February and Kyle says that she asked him to send their two sons – James Knight, 6, and Leo Thames, 4 – to spend a couple weeks with her, but that she sent them back to him after three days.
Kyle has been quarantining with the kids in Pennsylvania and says that Jaime has only seen the boys for three days in the past two months. He says that she accused him of “stealing” the kids while they were laying out the plans for their divorce and he claims she threatened to ruin him.
Jaime filed for divorce on May 18 and she requested a domestic violence restraining order and was granted a temporary one. He is requesting sole physical custody and shared legal custody of their two kids. He also wants Jaime out of their family home so that he can raise the kids there.
A judge has rejected Kyle‘s request for an emergency order for custody and they will both have the chance to argue their cases in court at a later date. The kids will remain in his custody for the time being.
Jaime‘s rep responded to the latest filming and told JustJared.com, “This is another vicious, failed attempt of Kyle to continue his abuse of Jaime and manipulate the court system. Today Kyle was denied all requests for emergency orders and the judge granted Jaime shared legal custody of their two children. The temporary domestic violence restraining order remains in place to protect Jaime.”
