“Winnie the Pooh” star Jim Cummings and his ex-wife’s legal battle has been so volatile, that law enforcement, including officials with child protective services in three different states, have been investigating the couple for years.
According to court records obtained by The Blast, the Disney voice actor claims there have been “16 reports” related to child protective services getting involved in Utah, Colorado, and California, due to Stephanie Cummings living and with the couple’s two children in different states.
Stephanie claims Jim has been harassing her nonstop, and Jim says the same thing since their divorce in 2011, and law enforcement has also been called at least 10 times.
It appears many of those calls were made by Stephanie, and Jim claims it has been a waste of police resources. One of those calls came in shortly after the Borderline bar shooting, and Jim, who was living in Thousand Oaks, wrote in documents that, “Police are mad, said they literally left Borderline for this call and would like to not be used as spies. I agree.”
Documents also reveal that investigators from the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services have visited the school of the Cummings’ daughters in the last few months to question ongoing issues with Jim and Stephanie.
Stephanie claims the situation is so desperate, she wrote a letter to her children’s school that was also sent to the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.
The letter, obtained by The Blast, reads, “I have reached out to everyone for help. I am a concerned mother who was living peacefully in St. George, Utah when my child was kidnapped. I am a survivor of rape, and emotional abuse at the hands of Jim Cummings.”
As we reported, Stephanie claims Jim has sexually assaulted her multiple times since their divorce. The tumultuous relationship between the former couple has been laid out during an ongoing custody issue and open court testimony the two have been participating in.
In Stephanie’s letter to the archdiocese, she wrote, “I have depleted my savings defending myself against baseless accusations by Mr. Cummings. Jim has the finances…I have nothing left. I am sending this to the archdiocese legal department at your request. NO mother deserves this. Doing nothing is not an option. My girls love me, I am their Mommy. They are being raised by a call girl, and a sexual deviant who has a little bit of fame. What these people have done is pure evil, no priest can help.”
The letter was also sent to officials at the #MeToo Movement, and to women’s rights attorney, Gloria Allred.
According to the documents, Jim claims the authorities are on his side and calls the statements Stephanie has made to CPS, “False.”
The voice of Tigger and Darkwing Duck claims all the allegations against him have been “unfounded,” and is adamant he never raped or sexually assaulted Stephanie.
He also says CPS has refused to investigate calls due to the same allegations being made over and over.
Jim and Stephanie will be back in court this week continuing to argue over custody and support.
Calls to Disney have remained unanswered.
