Jaime King’s divorce battle with Kyle Newman is only getting uglier.
On Nov. 4, Newman, 44, filed legal documents requesting sole physical custody of their sons, 7-year-old James Knight and 5-year-old Leo James, while proposing King only receive supervised visitation on alternating weekends and one night a week.
“I have been the children’s primary caretaker since their birth and the children have spent the large majority of 2020 in my sole custody,” Newman wrote in the court documents, which were obtained by People.
In a statement to Page Six, 41-year-old King’s rep blasted Newman’s request as a “false narrative.”
“Once again, Kyle’s lawyers have filed selectively redacted documents which perpetuate a false narrative about Jaime,” the statement reads. “Jaime’s utmost priority has been the well-being of her children and she will continue to pursue this privately for their sake.”
The “Hart of Dixie” actress’ rep added that she wishes Kyle “only the best” and even promoted the sales of his new cookbook.
“She looks forward to harmonious co-parenting of the boys when everyone is back home in Los Angeles,” the statement concludes. “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.”
In the documents, Newman alleged that King, who would have to submit to drug and alcohol testing, failed an alcohol stipulation test in June and missed the five rescheduled tests that day.
In May, Newman alleged in a different court filing that King is a “chronic drug addict” who wouldn’t seek help. At the time, he requested temporary sole physical custody of the boys.
Newman and King tied the knot in November 2007. She filed for divorce in May.
