HGTV’s “Rehab Addict” star Nicole Curtis is demanding a judge issue a gag order against her baby daddy in response to his recent accusations that she breached their custody deal.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Curtis accuses her ex, Shane Maguire, of misleading the court in his recent court filing.
As The Blast first reported, Maguire claimed in a recent filing that Curtis has breached their custody arrangement and claims she uses their son as a “publicity opportunity to stay relevant in the entertainment industry.”
In her new court filing, Curtis denies breaching the recent custody agreement when she went to Mexico with their son and never informed Maguire or provided him with the itinerary.
She denies having to get his approval for such trips and says Maguire was provided with the itinerary and all emergency contacts prior to them leaving. She claims, “This allegation is a prime example of Plaintiff’s attempt to paint Defendant Mother in a false light.”
Curtis accuses Maguire of trying “to bully, punish and drain” her of money.
The reality star argues she has followed each of the terms of their settlement and says she has not made any disparaging comments about her ex on social media.
She also takes issue with the allegation of attempting to thwart Maguire’s parenting time by falsely claiming their son was sick. Curtis denied this every happened and calls the allegations “self-serving.”
Nicole Curtis claims she originally wanted a gag order in the case but Maguire refused to consent to it. She is requesting the judge grant the gag order now, which will prohibit either party from speaking about the case or their son.
In his motion, Maguire described Curtis as “a former reality television personality” who he accused of having “continued to post disparaging and false comment” about him and his parenting of their son on her social media accounts. He accuses her of using their son as a “publicity opportunity to stay relevant in the entertainment industry.”
Maguire wants the judge to ban Curtis from talking publicly about their son or the legal battle.
Back in October, Curtis and Maguire reached a settlement over custody that prevented them from having to battle it out in a scheduled court trial.
The agreement states the two will now share joint physical and legal custody of their three-year-old son, Harper.
Curtis and Maguire agreed not to trash talk the other to their son or attempt to alienate the minor child from the other. The deal also says neither side will put their son on medication for longer than 30 days without consent.
