Adrienne Maloof Wins Temporary Custody, Accuses Ex-Husband of Choking Son

by at . Comments

Adrienne Maloof has won temporary custody of her children. But we have a feeling this legal battle between the reality star and her soon-to-be ex-husband is far from over.

A judge awarded Maloof custody of the former couple's three sons after reading a declaration she wrote in which she claimed Paul Nassif choked one of them during a car ride after school. The alleged action just took place a week ago.

Later that same day, Paul is also accused of grabbing a son from the bathtub - after he had been fighting with his brothers - spanking him and and "[throwing] him in the corner."

Earlier this month, Nassif had claimed in court that Adrienne was often physically and emotionally abusive toward him.

But Maloof had the last laugh - taunt? - yesterday, as a chef declared he once witnessed Paul kicking the family dog and a DEA agent friend added that he has seen Paul place his hands around the neck of a child.

Responds Nassif's attorney, Lisa Meyer, who was not present for this hearing:

"It is a sad day when parents have to stoop to the level of making false allegations against another parent... [this is] gamesmanship at its worst."

Married for 10 years, Adrienne and Paul split in late July.
