There’s no punching allowed in courtroom battles!
Chuck Liddell is fighting for full custody of his son, who allegedly told him he didn’t want to live with his mom anymore, in an LA court.
Sources say that his son, 12-year-old Cade, was visiting Chuck when he said that he didn’t want to go back to live with his mom, Lori Geyer. Also, Cade reportedly had a toothache for 2-3 months before visiting Chuck.
Chuck also alleges that his son was forced to perform physical labor, including moving snow.
The LA judge ruled that Colorado courts (where Lori lives) have jurisdiction, so a new court case will take place there.
It’s hard to tell from the details released, but unless Lori truly is abusive, it seems both unfair and irresponsible to take away her rights to see her son. Further, “moving snow” is simply a chore. Pretty much every kid in America has to do chores, and if they don’t they’re probably spoiled.
We want more details on this before we can say for sure which party we side with.
UPDATE: Chuck's ex, Lori Geyer, is alleging that the UFC champ's use of illegal drugs and alcohol have clouded his judgment, then led him to take Cade away from her!
She's also claiming he attempted to intimidate her during a visit she had with her son by pacing back and forth, while staring her down.
Yuck! Grow up, Chuck and get your head out of the ring!
This is your son's mother, not a an opponent getting ready to try to take your championship belt away.
If these allegations are true, Chuck may be out of luck because that behavior will not warrant a judge to award him custody.
Both are due in court on Tuesday in Colorado, so we'll see how this plays out soon enough.
