Making a quiet run at the Worst Celebrity Breakup title, Rosie O’Donnell and Michelle Rounds are engaged in an epic custody battle over their daughter.
Rounds reportedly wants custody of Dakota. Rosie is not having it.
The last five months have been "absolute hell for Michelle" as a result, says a source who adds that "Rosie’s a big bully" who loves making life miserable.
"Michelle has seen Rosie’s ugly side ... she no longer wants anything to do with the star and wants to take Dakota and live their lives in peace.”
O'Donnell, Rounds' camp claims, "is coming up with a million reasons not to follow through on what was an agreed prenuptial arrangement made."
“Rosie has done nothing but try to put the screws to Michelle."
Since they split, they’ve been dividing up time with Dakota by the week, but Rounds wants full custody, and for Rosie to follow through on their deal.
Says the source, who is obviously a Michelle Rounds fan:
“And as far as full custody of their daughter, Michelle deserved it. The fact is Michelle has done everything for their daughter since the adoption."
"Rosie seldom changed diapers or fed their baby. Michelle embraced motherhood, and she wants their child away from Rosie and all of Rosie’s problems.”
Given that Rosie has raised or is raising four other kids, that might be a hard sell, especially if she's got Dakota every other week and surviving now.
Should be interesting to see if a judge agrees.
