Jaime King's ex Kyle Newman files for sole custody of sons after accusing her of having a ‘drug and alcohol addiction’November 13, 2020
JAIME King's ex Kyle Newman filed for sole custody of their sons after accusing her of having a "drug and alcohol addiction."
The filmmaker has been trying to get sole custody of the kids since May.
According to court documents obtained by PEOPLE, Kyle claimed that he has "been the children's primary caretaker since their birth and the children have spent the large majority of 2020 in my sole custody."
Kyle and Jaime, 41, share two sons: Leo James, 5 and James Knight, 7.
He further requested the actress only gets supervised visitations on alternating weekends and one night a week.
He followed up his requests with claims that the Sin City actress – who would be subjected to drug and alcohol testing – failed an alcohol stipulation in June and then missed the next five scheduled retests that day.
According to the docs, Kyle had filed a request in October to Leo and James with him to Toronto as he directs a feature film.
However, Jaime, who was in Calgary filming a TV show, blocked her ex's request. They then agreed to a confidential stipulation, which left the kids in LA until their mother returned.
The actress assumed custody of her kids on October 27 and then three days later, requested to travel with her children. Kyle approved this request.
PEOPLE also talked to Jaime's rep who said: "Once again, Kyle’s lawyers have filed selectively redacted documents which perpetuate a false narrative about Jaime.
"Jaime’s utmost priority has been the well-being of her children and she will continue to pursue this privately for their sake.
"She wishes Kyle only the best on set in Ontario where he is currently filming as well as successful sales of his newly released Dungeons and Dragons cookbook.
"She looks forward to harmonious co-parenting of the boys when everyone is back home in Los Angeles. Jaime currently has the children with her while she is filming a movie in Puerto Rico after wrapping the second season of her television series."
This is certainly not the first time that Kyle has accused Jaime of failing her drug tests as he accused her of an alcohol and drug addiction back in May.
In the court documents obtained by TMZ, Kyle claimed the former model has “spent the last decade high.”
He also stated she refuses to seek treatment for her alleged addictions.
The Fan Boys director and 14 of Jaime’s closest friends staged an intervention with her on January 12 that begged her to get help, the legal papers also said.
Kyle allegedly gave his wife an ultimatum to get treatment "or the kids and I need to leave for their own safety."
The court documents also claim that Jaime, 41, went to a Utah rehab facility but left soon after she arrived for trying to check in while having “a bunch of pills on her.”
According to the court docs, the Hart of Dixie star was in possession of Adderall and Clonazepam as she arrived to Cirque Lodge.
The legal papers also reportedly state that the blonde actress was on a project in Canada in February when she requested her young sons to be flown up from LA.
Kyle said in the docs that she sent them back three days into the trip, despite initially requesting them for a couple of weeks.
He claimed she admitted to having an affair while also consuming drugs and alcohol, according to the outlet.
The couple’s children have reportedly been quarantining with their dad in Pennsylvania as Jaime has remained in Los Angeles.
Kyle alleged the famous 90’s model has only seen her boys three days out of the past two months.
TMZ also stated the pair went over their divorce plans on May 15 when she accused him of “stealing” James and Leo from her.
The court papers alleged Kyle tried to reassure her that wasn’t the case but claimed she became outraged and “threatened to ruin him.”
A representative for Jaime responded to Kyle's claims on Friday to TMZ: "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," the rep said.
According to court documents filed by Jaime, a judge also ruled today that Kyle has been ordered to stay away from his estranged wife.
The legal papers also allege that he has tracked her electronically and claim he's isolated her from friends.
Jaime has reportedly stated in the docs that Kyle has taken out hundreds of thousands of dollars from their account and has kept her from career opportunities.
She stated in the papers that she feels sick to her stomach ever encounter she has with her children's father.
Jaime was also granted a restraining order against her estranged husband, according to reports.
According to documents that were obtained by People, Jaime's order was approved by a judge until court proceedings begin on June 8.
However, her request for an emergency motion with regard to custody and child visitation was "denied without prejudice."
Back in May, the Black Summer star filed for divorce from Kyle after 13 years of marriage.
The mother of two filed a domestic violence prevention petition at the same time, according to The Blast.
Kyle and Jaime tied-the-knot in Los Angeles in 2007 and welcomed James Knight – who is the godson of Taylor Swift – in October 2013.
Their second son, Leo Thames, was born on July 16, 2015.
