Il 27 settembre, Ant Anstead ha affermato che la sua ex moglie Christina Hall stava sfruttando il loro figlio condiviso, Hudson. “I rischi per un bambino che lavora su un set di produzione televisiva (anche se quel ‘set’ è la casa di Christina) sono innumerevoli e ben documentati”, ha affermato la conduttrice televisiva negli atti del tribunale ottenuti da Us Weekly. Ha anche espresso preoccupazione per il modo in cui la star di HGTV pubblicava Hudson e taggava i prodotti, sottintendendo che lo stava usando per scopi di marketing.
This exploitation case is a new turn in Anstead and Hall's ongoing custody battle. In April, it was reported that the "Master Mechanic" star filed for emergency full custody of Hudson. In the court documents obtained by TMZ, Anstead claimed that his ex-wife wasn't fit to be a good and supporting parent, but the court denied the custody. Now, Hall is taking to social media to speak her mind on the custody battle.
Christina Hall says goodbye to publicly showing her son
Christina Hall hasn't been staying silent about her feelings toward the ongoing custody battle with her ex-husband Ant Anstead. The HGTV star posted a fall-inspired picture to Instagram on September 30, writing in the caption, "When the world is spinning and people are a**holes, this is my safe place," making a subtle jab at Anstead's claims against her to gain full custody of their shared son.
On October 2, the "Flip or Flop" personality directly addressed the custody battle. "I am mentally exhausted over the recent false accusations against me," she captioned her Instagram post. She claimed that Anstead is doing this to ruin her image and reputation. "This has had great impact on me and my household," she added. She then stated that she will no longer be posting Hudson on her social media, nor will he appear on television anymore.
Back in April, when Anstead first filed for emergency full custody, Hall's new husband Josh took to Instagram to share his thoughts. "Christina and I will always remain unfazed by any outside noise and save the kids from any unnecessary trauma," he said in his lengthy caption. He went on to defend his wife and her parenting, saying that she is "very driven" and is able to be a "positive influence" for her children while being in the public eye.
