Kyle Newman has fired back at estranged wife Jaime King, claiming in court papers she’s a “chronic drug addict and alcoholic.”.
Newman, 44, claimed in court documents filed Friday morning and obtained by Page Six that the “Hart of Dixie” actress, 41, “refuses to acknowledge that she has a problem, let alone seek meaningful treatment for such problem.”.
The documents also claim that King spent 10 months trying to wean herself off the opiates under medical supervision, but ultimately relapsed in January 2020 and began “drinking even more heavily.”.
Newman also alleges at King’s “insistence,” the kids were to remain with him and his family in Pennsylvania during the pandemic, only for her to become “erratic” and claim in court documents she filed earlier this week that he had kidnapped them.
King filed for divorce earlier this week and was granted a temporary restraining order, but her emergency motion related to child custody and visitation was denied.
Newman is requesting the court grant him temporary primary physical custody of the kids with visitation for King.
Currently, they share joint legal custody.
In response to this latest action, King’s rep told Page Six, “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?
