Shannon and David Beador‘s divorce continues to get uglier and uglier. The Real Housewives of Orange County star is “frustrated” that her “estranged husband is dragging out” their on-going divorce.
“David’s filing is just another example of how low he can go. Shannon is frustrated and just wants this divorce to be over,” a source tells Us Weekly. “But he is dragging it out and doing whatever he can so he doesn’t have to pay her out.”
The former Real Housewives of Orange County couple filed for divorce in December 2017 after 17 years of marriage. David and Shannon share three daughters together – Sophie and twins Stella and Adeline.
Earlier in December 2018, David filed an order to prevent Shannon from drinking around their daughters; alleging that Shannon’s behavior while under the influence is “detrimental to the children.” Days later Shannon fired back with her own claims against David.
“I am informed and believe — based on his communication with me (and sometimes his refusal to communicate) — that the Respondent is deeply angry with me and was looking to hurt and embarrass me,” Shannon wrote in the docs. “His Request for Order was apparently designed to attract media attention and assert control.”
Meanwhile, David claims that Shannon is the one who is attempting to drag out their divorce.
In a statement to Us Weekly, David said, “I have pleaded with Shannon and their attorney to give me a proposal to end this on multiple occasions since she filed in the best interest of all, most especially the kids but to date, they have chosen to not respond.”
