The son of Anne Heche will live with his father, Coley Laffoon, in Los Angeles while the actress works in Canada, a judge ruled in the strange actress' bitter divorce case.

Under the temporary arrangement, Anne Heche, who had asked to have 5-year-old Homer live with her and attend school in Vancouver, will have alternate weekend visitation rights while the ABC show shoots.

When she returns to Los Angeles after filming ends, she and her estranged husband, Coley Laffoon, will have joint custody pending the outcome of their divorce trial.

Men in Trees, which stars Heche and her current boyfriend, James Tupper, begins filming in Canada in mid-July and will wrap up around next March.

The custody arrangement was approved by the Superior Court judge in a closed-door hearing Monday, according to lawyers in the case.

"Coley Laffoon is pleased with the result of the hearing," his attorney, Jon Summers, tells People, adding that Laffoon was awarded an undisclosed amount of child and spousal support.

"Homer is going to remain in Los Angeles and attend school here."

Laffoon, 33, filed for divorce in February, triggering a brutal custody dispute. He has questioned Heche's sanity and parenting skills, accusing the actress of resorting to lies to win custody of and destroy his relationship with their son.

Someone's gotta get Coley and Alec Baldwin together for some drinks.

The former videographer, who says he was making just $6,000 a year when he quit his job to take care of Homer, sought primary custody and at least $33,000 a month in support, according to court papers.

Heche, who has defended her parenting, has claimed he was actually seeking $45,000 a month and that his cravings for strippers, poker and masturbating to online porn kept him from properly raising Homer.

Well, those are some concerns. Talk about a rock and a hard place! And to think we thought Jayden James Federline had some screwed up parents!

It seems the messy divorce between Anne Heche and Coleman "Coley" Laffoon is driving her to seek the company of women.

Granted, this is Anne Heche. But it always says a lot about the quality of a man when his lover and former spouse abandons the entire gender, seeking shelter in the arms of her own sex.

Not that we have any problems with girl-on-girl action here at The Gossip.

But still, way to blow it for the team, Coley Laffoon, you ass clown.

In any case, here's how this rumor got started. On Saturday, Anne Heche was seen "getting very cozy" with club promoter Voula Duval at the Gramercy Park Hotel's Rose Bar in New York City, the New York Post reports.

Then, Sunday night, Heche was spotted flirting with Six Degrees star Shiri Appleby, 28, at a Tony Awards after-party at Bryant Park Hotel.

Sadly, Shiri Appleby's Six Degrees co-star, Bridget Moynahan, wasn't there, though she is single now! Call her up, Anne! You gotta try to move in on that!

A rep for Heche, who dated Ellen DeGeneres before she married the buffoon Laffoon, did not return phone calls seeking comment on her supposedly changing jerseys again.

Very interesting, these lesbian rumors. Never mind the fact that Heche is reportedly dating James Tupper, her co-star on Men In Trees, and by all accounts a heterosexual male. Wonder what his take on this celebrity gossip is.

In any case, the gist of the divorce battle between Heche and Laffoon, which involves a dispute over custody over their five-year-old son, Homer:

  • Coley Lafoon says Anne Heche is insane.
  • Anne Heche says Coley Laffoon is an absentee parent who is addicted to poker, strippers, masturbating and downloading sex photos online.

Yeah. Suffice it to say, these two are making the divorce proceedings of Marilyn Manson and former spouse Dita Von Teese seem downright civil.

Incensed by recent rumors about his parenting ability, Coley Laffoon would like to take this opportunity to beat off. Outrageous allegations from Anne Heche.

Heche's soon-to-be-ex husband is out to set the record straight in their ongoing custody battle. First order of business? Establishing that he's no chicken-choking addict.

Second point: Anne Heche is just plain nuts!

One of the weirdest celebrity custody battles got even crazier today, when Coley Laffoon filed a response to Anne's allegations - that he is addicted to poker, strippers and masturbating to Internet porn.

In the documents, Coley Laffoon admits that he has occasionally checked out a few XXX sites, but only "when we were together."

Neither elaborated as to whether Coley prefers more tasteful Playboy-style spreads, such as the new one featuring a nude Amanda Beard, or kinkier stuff.

Anyway. Coley Laffoon says in response to his ex's remarks that it's Anne Heche who is certifiably insane - as publicized in her own autobiography titled... "Call Me Crazy."

Sorry to break this news, Britney Spears. We know you wanted to call your long-awaited autobiographical tell-all by that very same name.

Coley Laffoon claims that in the book, Heche "describes how she went to Fresno by herself after taking one pill of ecstasy, because she received a message from God that a spaceship was going to be meeting her there and taking her away."

Okay, we'd like to apologize to Britney Spears. Not even she can be considered in the same league as Heche. We pity you, James Tupper, even if you're just in it for ratings.

The jabs continue throughout the documents, with highlights including accusations of drunken arguments, manipulation, lies and strip club visits. No elaboration on whether Laffoon ever visited any of the clubs Joslyn Noel Morse performed at.

We can only hope that Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag actually make it to the altar... because their divorce battle would be something to behold.

Coley Laffoon says Anne Heche is insane.

Now, the former lesbian has allegations of her own.

Firing back in her divorce case, Anne Heche has asked for full custody of her son, Homer, and claims Coley Laffoon, her ex-husband, craves porn, poker and money.

Anne Heche says in court papers that although Laffoon claims he's this nice stay-at-home dad, he actually leaves the 5-year-old "with nannies and babysitters, while he plays ping-pong, backgammon and poker and looks at Internet porn."

Ah, sweet memories of country star and Dancing with the Stars competitor Sara Evans and her perverted, cheating husband, Craig Schelske.

"He holds a poker game at his home every Thursday night and allows Homer to participate," the Men in Trees star says in a L.A. Superior Court filing released Thursday.

She adds that Coley Laffoon bragged to cast members of her show, taped in Vancouver, that he "knew each strip joint in town."

Heche asks the judge to grant her sole legal and physical custody of their son, to give Laffoon visitation, and to deny his request for support.

In what is shaping up to be a rift along the lines of what Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger are going through, the judge can expect arguments from each side that the other parent is psychologically unfit.

In his court filing last week, Coley Laffoon, 33, said that Anne Heche, 37, who's now with co-star James Tupper, demonstrates "bizarre and delusional behavior."

"I have serious concerns about whether she is psychologically capable of caring for Homer for an extended period of time,"says Laffoon, who filed for divorce in February.

THG NOTE: Only Anne Heche would marry somebody named Coley Laffoon. It just fits, for reasons we can't explain. Much like Kellie Pickler dating an "Eskimo" named Jordin Tootoo.

Laffoon, a former videographer, says he quit a $6,000-a-year job to take care of Homer, and is seeking primary custody and at least $33,000 a month in support.

Anne Heche claims that he's actually seeking $45,000 a month.

Laffoon's lawyer, Jon S. Summers, says "any suggestion that the statements were financially motivated is not only false, it's obscene."

In court papers, Laffoon writes that he is entitled to child and spousal support "in the amount sufficient to maintain the marital standard of living and child support consistent with (Heche's) income."

Here's hoping he joins the ranks of Kevin Federline and other deadbeat ex-spouses across this great nation.

You may not know who Coley Laffoon is, but surely the latter half of this headline doesn't come as a huge shock to you.

Laffoon, Anne Heche's absurdly-named, soon-to-be-ex-hubby, claims that he's worried that the actress isn't psychologically capable of caring for their son... and says she refuses to see a shrink!

In court papers filed this month in L.A. County Superior Court, Coley Laffoon asks a judge for joint custody of the couple's 5-year-old son, Homer, and claims that Heche may be unfit for parenthood.

Specifically, he says that the "bizarre, delusional behavior" and "poor parenting skills" of Heche, who once dated Ellen DeGeneres, could be a problem.

In the papers, Laffoon claims that Anne eschews car seats like Britney Spears, and that she often cusses in front of the child, as well as routinely packing school lunches that Homer "did not like."

Laffoon believes that his prior experience as a nanny and a summer camp counselor justify giving him joint custody. It may also justify him as a Grade A tool.

Laffoon is also asking for $33,000 a month in spousal support, even though he claims he only made $6,000 a year as a videographer before the two were married.

Anne Heche makes $81,000 an episode for her role in "Men In Trees."

Laffoon filed for divorce February 2, 2007. Right around that time, his formerly lesbian wife took up with her co-star, James Tupper. Rumors that Heche and Tupper were more than co-stars surfaced even before the divorce filing.

A spokesperson for Anne Heche released the following statement:

It is disappointing that Coley Laffoon has resorted to filing lies with the court because Anne Heche would not cave in to his astronomical monetary demands, including his demand for $45,000 a month in support. For the past several years, the child's father has refused to get a job in order to contribute financially to the child's care.

Wow. These two loons might not be entering Bobby Brown / Whitney Houston territory, but let's just say our staff feels sorry for poor little Homer.

And not just because his name is Homer. His parents are nuts.

We don't know what's weirder:

  1. The fact that Anne Heche and her co-star from Men In Trees are now dating
  2. The fact that Anne Heche was a lesbian at one point, but then got married to a guy and has a five-year-old son
  3. The fact that Anne Heche's husband's name is Coley Laffoon

In any case, it's all true. But Men In Trees hunk James Tupper insists he's no Jason Wahler. In the sense that he's not a cheating SOB. Nor does he get arrested a lot.

Whatever. According to Tupper, his off-screen romance with Heche didn't commence until they were both single, he tells People.

"The line," he says, "was never crossed."

Instead, James Tupper, who earned the on-set nickname McTreemy** because of his heartthrob status among viewers**, says he and Heche "really trusted each other almost right from the beginning and leaned on each other as their respective marriages were coming to an end."

** - Please note that this was a marketing attempt by ABC to capitalize on the popularity of Grey's Anatomy, and that no one actually calls him this. Or watches Men In Trees, for that matter.

Tupper separated from his wife, Kate, late last year, but "We remain very good friends," he says. Sure thing. In January, Heche announced that she was separating from Laffoon, her husband of five years. They have a five-year-old son, Homer.

Though their relationship did not begin immediately, the spark between the actors, which is not by any means a fake relationship staged generate interest in the show, was clear as soon as they started working together.

"Anne and I have wonderful on-screen chemistry," Tupper said. "I'm happy that people like to watch us. It's a beautiful thing. I adore her, and I'm hopeful for the future."

But does Tupper, who says he'd love kids one day, see himself settling down with Heche?

"I'm not ready to rush into marriage," he says, but "I've never met anyone like her. There's something really comforting when you can truly connect with someone and be understood. Isn't that what we all want?"

Amen, James. The Gossip and Anne Hathaway definitely feel that same sort of bond. Even if the latter is not aware of this whatsoever.

It's not easy being Anne Heche.

The actress has dated women - notably, Ellen DeGeneres.

She's dated men - say hello to Coley Laffoon, her husband of five years until recently.

And now, she's reportedly dating co-stars - step right up, Men In Trees actor, James Tupper.

A spokesperson for Tupper has confirmed that he's left his wife and is the latest to try his luck with Heche. We think the Keeley Hazell sex tape has a better chance of winning an Oscar than this relationship has of working out.

Last October, Tupper was asked what it's like working with Heche.

"I'm a big fan," he said. "She has an energy that makes people feel included in things. It's like being under a light when you're around her."

A light of confused sexual orientation and morals, sure. What's next, animals? Paris Hilton's pussy sure hopes not.
