This is clearly not going to be one of those amicable Hollywood splits as things are already getting ugly between Rosie O’Donnell and her estranged wife Michelle Rounds.
The two are currently locked in a legal battle over the custody of their 2-year old daughter Dakota with Rounds saying she wants sole custody so that her daughter can have a “normal life.”
“Right now she has 24/7 nannies over there at Rosie’s house. I don’t want my child to have a nanny. I want her to be outside playing. I want to be with her. I want to go to all the parent conferences… and that’s just not what it’s about over there,” Rounds told Entertainment Tonight.
She went on to mention that Rosie’s parenting skills are not up to par and even claimed that Rosie drinks a bottle of wine almost every night, and smokes weed according to TMZ and also lets her 19-year old son throw parties which Rounds views as irresponsible.
Many have assumed that Rounds is just trying to get as much money as possible from O’Donnell but she is denying that completely. “I made my first million before the age of 39, that was before I met Rosie. I don’t need Rosie’s money, I don’t want Rosie’s money… The prenup money means nothing to me. I will walk away from the prenup if Rosie will give me full custody.”
The pair were married in June 2012 before separating in November 2014 and share Dakota while O’Donell has four older children from her previous relationship with Kelli Carpenter.
