FORMER Real Housewives of New York star Jules Wainstein is begging a judge to drop her two children from her ex’s restraining order against her, The Sun can report.
Jules’ estranged husband, Michael, filed an amended protection order on February 27, requesting their two young children, Jagger and Rio, be kept away from her after her recent domestic violence arrest.
In court documents obtained by The Sun, Jules, 39, claimed she picked up their two children from school when she was released from jail on February 24.
Two days after Michael’s no-contact order was issued against Jules, he filed to add Jagger and Rio to the order, prohibiting Jules “from having any contact; not in person, by telephone, nor by email, with the minor children.”
She claimed that on February 25, he spent less than two hours with their children and returned them to her instead of having them over night as part of their custody agreement.
She continued that two days later, he allegedly “failed to exercise his Thursday evening timeshare with the children” and that he returned the children to her “two hours early.”
On February 28, the children were “removed from” her custody.
But she claimed that on March 6, a New York City judge made a decision awarding her sole custody and decision-making for the kids.
She is requesting the court in Florida- where the family now lives- “modify/dissolve the temporary injunction as to the children and adopt the New York Post-Trial Decision and direct the parties to litigate their custody and visitation disputes in the family court."
Jules has a hearing for the matter later this month.
As The Sun reported, the former Bravo star was arrested for domestic battery against Michael during a custody exchange on February 23.
In the restraining order request, Michael claimed Jules allegedly exited her vehicle “carrying a large baseball bat.”
He claimed in court papers that she went to the driver’s side window and began “hitting the baseball bat against the Petitioner’s driver’s side door.”
The court papers alleged: “She kissed and licked the driver’s side window while she was beating the car with the baseball bat.”
Michael refused to exit the vehicle, as she was “swinging around a baseball bat and acting erratically.”
The court papers continued: ”[Jules] eventually put-down the baseball bat by attempting to hide it under the rear tire of [his] vehicle.”
Jules then opened the back door of the vehicle to let out their children.
When Jules realized Michael was recording her, he claimed she let go of her children's hands and “screamed obscenities aloud at the Petitioner in front of the children.”
He claimed she began to “beat his face with her fists and attempted to smash his cellphone.”
The children were “screaming and crying” when she attacked him.
Michael was given custody of the minor children after her arrest.
He also alleged in the request: “The respondent's behavior has become extremely erratic and aggressive, and the Petitioner believes it is fueled by illicit drug use.”
He claimed Jules has an “extensive habit of abusing cocaine and off-label prescription medication in connection with her admitted eating disorder.”
The Bravo husband alleged one of the kids told him they saw her taking pills before her arrest.
Michael requested Jules undergo hair follicle testing, as he claimed she is “currently abusing drugs or has some type of psychological issue.”
He is also requesting she enter substance abuse treatment and anger management counseling.
In the police report obtained by The Sun, Michael had a “reddish mark” and “small scratch” on his face.
Jules, who appeared on season 8 of RHONY, admitted to authorities that she was involved in a physical altercation with Michael.
The report read: ”Julianne further stated 'I was angry' and 'I smacked him.'"
The Sun exclusively reported Jules pled not guilty to the charge.
Michael's lawyer, Morghan Richardson, told The Sun in a statement at the time: "This is an evolving legal matter that will be addressed by the Florida Courts. Michael is a devoted father and he is focused on taking care of the kids full time right now.
"Ms. Wainstein’s plea is contrary to what she admitted to police. It is time for her to step-up and address her problem. Michael only wants her to get the help that she needs."
