So much for the amicable divorce?

With Adrienne Maloof and Dr. Paul Nassif splitting up, the question now turns to this estranged couple's children. What will become of their three sons? Who will be rewarded with primary custody?

Insiders tell Radar Online that Maloof and Nassif were due in court this week because "it appears the only way this can be resolved is a decision by the judge."

Based on Nassif's divorce papers, he is looking for joint legal custody of their the kids, along physical custody "according to children's best interest." That can be difficult to assess/determine, of course, hence the need for a possible legal battle.

"This is turning out to be a very, very nasty divorce proceedings so far, and the fact that Paul and Adrienne had to go to court on an emergency basis this early in the proceedings isn't a good sign," the Radar source claims.

Of course, even if Maloof loses her sons, she could still win in the end: the Real Housewife may soon get her own reality show!
