Keeping the peace. Christina Hall (née Haack) and Ant Anstead have been ordered to attend mediation amid their ongoing custody dispute over son Hudson.According to court documents obtained by Us Weekly, the pair are required to meet with a mediator on June 15 in order to address their disputed custody and visitation issues ahead of their next hearing.Us confirmed last month that Anstead, 43, filed a petition seeking full custody of the 2-year-old son he shares with Hall, 38, with an Orange County, California, court on April 28.
The Wheelers Dealers host, who was married to the Flip or Flop alum for two years before they split in September 2020, previously agreed to share joint custody with Hall. (Anstead also shares daughter Amelie and son Archie with ex-wife Louise Storey, while Hall shares Taylor and Brayden with ex-husband Tarek El Moussa.)However, in his filing, the England native claimed that Hall has not created a safe environment for Hudson in the years following their separation.
Among other things, Anstead alleged that the Christina on the Coast star returned Hudson to him in January without disclosing that the toddler had tested positive for COVID-19. “At the time, my partner [Renée Zellweger] was filming her new project and her covid diagnosis placed the whole production on pause,” he stated in the April court documents.Anstead also called into question Hall’s ability to safely parent Hudson, citing her past use of the hallucinogenic Bufo Alvarius toad venom as an example of her being unfit to care for their son.Read more on usmagazine.com
