Ant Anstead has launched a full-fledged war against his ex-wife Christina Hall! The television presenter has filed a lawsuit to make a major change to the custody arrangement for his son Hudson London, who he shares with Hall.
Hall and Anstead were married for a year before shockingly ending things in 2020. In the divorce proceeding, the pair were given shared custody of the toddler, but now the United Kingdom wants to switch things up because he believes the “Flip or Flop” star is not capable as a mother.
Ant Anstead Files For Full Custody, Slams Christina Hall As Bad Mom
According to court documents obtained by TMZ, on Thursday, Anstead filed a lawsuit seeking full custody of Hudson because he believes Hall has created a “dangerous environment” for their child and uses him as a social media puppet.
In the documents, the “Wheeler Dealers” star claimed that Hall has largely placed their son at risk whenever he is in her custody and is usually an absent mom for most of little Hudson’s life.
The former spouse alleged that the celebrity real estate personality has only spent an average of “9 full days each month” over the last 20 months.
However, when Hudson is in her care, the HGTV personality focuses on using her little son as a social media pawn as part of her paid promotions with brands or to draw likes from her followers.
The 43-year-old automobile lover cited a horrible incident earlier this month when Hudson came back home with a bizarre sunburn after being in Hall’s care. The doting father alleged that the sunburn was so intense it left their son “crying in pain.”
When he allegedly spoke to Hall about their son’s condition, the “Christina on the Coast” star dismissed it as nothing too serious.
A screenshot of a text exchange between Anstead and Hall showed him complaining about Hudson being “badly burnt,” to which she replied, “kids were playing soccer at the park, marine layer hid the sun, and it didn’t feel hot. Give him some Tylenol I’m sure it will be better tomorrow.”
Another allegation levied against Hall claims that she returned Hudson to Anstead’s custody without letting him know that her family had COVID-19. At the time, “my partner was filming her new project, and her covid diagnosis placed the whole production on pause,” Anstead claimed.

The “For the Love of Cars with Philip Glenister” co-host didn’t forget to include Hall’s controversial claim of taking a hallucinogenic toad venom when she first met her now-husband, Josh Hall.
He attacked her use of the psychedelic, saying it made her an unsafe parent. To crown it all, Anstead is also asking that a judge bans Hall from using their son for any “commercial endeavor” unless he agrees to it.
The ‘Flip Or Flop’ Star Responds To Full Custody Lawsuit
Following the news of Anstead’s lawsuit, Hall has spoken up about the allegations levied against her. Hall said in a statement released to People Magazine, “What Ant is doing deeply saddens me. If this was really about Hudson, as he says, this should have been handled privately with a private judge or mediation, as myself and my attorney have suggested.”
She added, “I have had my share of ups and downs but I am a good mom, and I love my children with all my heart, and I will always protect them.”
The famous real estate investor also shared a cryptic post on Instagram, alluding to the situation. She shared a lengthy poem that began, “she will test you and see what you’re made of, just by being herself. Because the nature of a strong woman will identify who a man is really is.”

The poem continued, speaking about how a man who needs to control a woman or feels threatened by her will reveal himself when the woman shows her strength.
In the accompanying caption of the post, Hall shared a quote by Jill Blakeway: “When a toxic person can no longer control you, they will try to control how others see you. The misinformation will feel unfair, but you stay above it, trusting that other people will eventually see the truth just like you did.”
