Rodney Atkins Divorce

It's UNSAFE for Us

to Live In the Same House

Rodney Atkins divorce documents
Rodney Atkins
and his wife agree ... they don't think it's safe to continue living under the same roof ... this according to the divorce docs obtained by TMZ.

We broke the story ... the country superstar filed for divorce after he was arrested last month for allegedly attacking his wife Tammy in a drunken bender in his Tennessee home. Rodney claims the allegations are completely false.

Now, we've obtained the divorce documents, in which both Rodney and Tammy agree they are "unable to live together successfully as husband and wife."

Both Rodney and Tammy also state that the other is "guilty of such inappropriate marital conduct as renders further cohabitation unsafe and improper."

According to the docs, Tammy is demanding sole custody of the couple's 10-year-old child -- plus she wants alimony, child support and Rodney to pay for her legal fees.

Rodney is demanding joint custody -- and claims he's willing to pay child support -- but he wants Tammy to pay for HIS legal fees.

For now, the judge has signed off on a restraining order -- barring both Rodney and Tammy from "harassing, threatening, assaulting or abusing the other party."

Do we really need to see his "O" face? That's even worse than the fetus funeral you reported on yesterday.

Met Rodney at a Harley Davidson store. He gave me tickets and back stage passes,to his concert. I did not know who he was either but after meeting the guy and hanging out after the concert (back stage) he was not drinking and there were no sleezy women around come to the conclusion he is a pretty good guy. Wife is probably a little spoiled and not getting her way. Love ya Rodney!

TMZ likes to use the word "star" way to liberaly. And to call this guy a superstar is even funnier. For the non-country music fans here, this dude has had one, maybe two songs that were on the radio. He is the kind of singer that tries to make his voice sound good, rather than singing with his voice. Probably because his voice sucks.

I can't believe Rodney Atkins is filing for divorce! He sings the hit song "Honesty" which is a touching story about a couple going through a divorce. For those of you who never heard the song, here is the link:

Still can't believe he is getting a divorce.

I recently met Rodney at a concert. He was a very sweet and nice guy, and all he did the whole time I was there was talk about how wonderful his family is. I don't believe he would do anything to hurt any member of his family.
