Eddie Cibrian is calling out the physical and verbal abuse he says occurred at the hands of his soon-to-be ex-wife, Brandi Glanville — and in front of their kids.
In new court papers, the CSI: Miami actor, 36, alleges his ex physically and verbally attacked him, slashing the tires of his Harley Davidson motorcycle tires in a fit of rage after a domestic dispute.
Cibrian, who is filing for joint legal and physical custody, says his ex's actions have also affected their two children, sons Mason, 6, and Jake, 2.
Weeks after the couple had separated, but while Cibrian was still living in the family's guesthouse, the actor says his ex got violent and told their son, Jake, "daddy doesn't love you" during their screaming match.
"[Glanville] is allowing her emotional rage to overcome any attempt by me to do what is in the best interest of our children," Cibrian says, detailing the Aug. 1 dispute that resulted in his tires being slashed.
But Glanville defends her actions, telling E! News she was retaliating after finding out about her ex's alleged 2006 affair with cocktail waitress Sheena Marie.
"He broke my heart, so I broke his Harleys," Glanville, who filed for divorce last summer after eight years of marriage, says. "It was right after I found out about girl No. 2, and I had that Carrie Underwood song in my head, and I just went for it!"
Cibrian is currently dating LeAnn Rimes, whom he met and began an affair with while filming the Lifetime TV movie Northern Lights.
