This has been a tough year for both Kelly Dodd and her estranged husband, Michael.
The former couple announced their split in September and their divorce battle is growing more contentious by the day. The Real Housewives of Orange County star’s soon-to-be ex has lawyered up and “wants full-custody” of their 11-year-old daughter, Jolie.
“Michael has lawyered up because he wants full custody of their daughter,” reports Life & Style magazine.
Apparently, he feels Kelly’s an unfit mother, who’s pre-occupied filming RHOC and busy traveling.
“Michael feels Kelly’s often traveling and busy filming,” the source says. “He is furious.”
Kelly and Michael gave their marriage a second shot in 2012 — rebounding after Kelly’s initial decision to file for divorce. In a bifurcated divorce the couple’s marital status is terminated prior to official finalization of settlement issues.
After finally calling it quits in September, they have both moved on — dating other people. However, the source claims that their 11-year-old daughter, Jolie, is Michael’s main focus.
“He wants to make sure, that she gets all the attention she needs.”
Kelly was very open about her marital discontent on the Bravo reality series, but has always maintained that her daughter is top priority.
