Sara Evans' Ex: She Surrounds Our Kids with Drugs

4/29/2011 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sara Evans' ex-husband wants shared custody of their children ASAP -- claiming Sara places their kids in party-crazed environments when she goes on tour ... and surrounds them with drugs and alcohol.


It's the latest in the ex-couple's ongoing custody dispute, filed Wednesday in Tennessee -- Craig Schelske is gunning for 50/50 custody of their three children ... in order to "protect the children from the likelihood of substantial harm" during Sara's upcoming tour.

According to the papers, Schelske's been on tour with his country singer ex before -- and "has first-hand knowledge that the children are exposed to inappropriate conduct, spend little time with [Sara], and are placed in a party atmosphere with excessive drinking and drug use."

Schelske adds, in the past Sara has even "encouraged and condoned underage drinking."

As of now, Sara has full custody of the kids -- and she's scheduled to leave on a brand new tour in less than a month ... so he's trying to move fast. Calls to Sara's camp weren't returned.

Or he could go away for a minimal fee. It's always about money in the celeb world. He misses hers.

Isn't Evans the person who left Dancing With the Stars because she was going through a divorce? Like other people don't have to work when they get divorced. Who cares?

It kinda reads like this...

He knows from first hand experience about the partying... But did nothing before. Now there's divorce involved and he wants the kids now. ... But it was ok before they got divorced? But not now?

Even if what he says is true, he is still a terd. You should have done something before out of concern, not later out of spite. Almost makes you want to question his parenting.

I know all the parties involved...this is a very sad situation. Sara says all the right things and professes to be a certain kind of person, but her actions are far from what she claims. She has done some very bad things and her first priority is herself. Craig on the other hand is probably one of the nicest people I know. This article is muddled and a little misleading. I wish the best for all the parties involved especially the children.

I know Craig and he didn't know till recently about Sara's involvement in the party scene. The article got it wrong.

I can understand why the man doesn't want his kids on tour with their mother....Think about takeing more the one young'un just on a trip to the store 30 miles away ? ....three fights, two bouts of crying and a spilled something later and you finely arrive at the store where the real fun think about 2 or 3 young'uns hemmed up on a tour bus with the adults trying to sleep before the next tour stop....and then after the show it's winding down time on the bus or plane before they start on there next leg of the tour....and their 3 kiddies in the mix what she going do set them on top of the bus why the winding down(partying) is going on. Remember he's been on tours with her so he has first hand knowledge...
Sorry in ths I think the kiddies need to stay home with their daddy....touring isn't for young'uns no matter how many nannies ,handlers or babysitters go along on the trip.....

Sara, what were you thinking when you married this skumbag? Stay single in the future girl.

She left dancing with the stars because she found out her husband was viewing porn at home on the computer with her children there. They have been divorced a while now, and she has remarried. There's a good reason why she has full custody of the children. He is after money, that's all. She makes the money, and if he can get his hands on fifty percent custody, she will have to pay him child support while he has the children.

I love when people make allegations and you a-holes print it like it's gospel. Not considering that it might not be true, or this is just a family squabble. You never fail to disappoint.
