'Celeb Rehab' Star

Exposed Baby to Meth

... Says Husband

7/25/2012 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kari Ann Peniche's estranged husband claims the couple's 10-month old baby tested positive for meth ... and now he's begging a judge to strip Kari's custody rights ASAP claiming the "Celebrity Rehab" star poses a serious threat to their child's health.

Justin Williams has filed documents in L.A. County Superior Court ... claiming he took his 10 month old son for a hair follicle drug test earlier this month after he began to suspect Kari Ann had fallen off the wagon and was using drugs around the kid.

Justin says the tests came back POSITIVE for meth.

In the docs, filed by his attorney Marlo Van Oorschot, Williams says he was initially concerned because the baby "has a habit of sucking on Kari Ann's hair and clothes and I became concerned that he could be affected by drug residue."

Justin also claims he found evidence that Kari -- who's struggled with addiction in the past -- had been using drugs in the past 2 months.

Now, Justin believes the baby is in danger when he is with Kari Ann ... explaining, "I do not want him to continue to be exposed to smoke from meth or to accidentally ingest illegal drugs while with Kari Ann."

Justin is demanding sole legal and physical custody -- and wants to BAN Kari Ann from any sort of unsupervised contact with the kid. He also wants Kari Ann to submit to weekly drug tests ... and if she tests positive, he wants the judge to revoke her visitation entirely.

We reached out to Kari -- so far, no comment.

Oh gawd, I hate this chick so much. When I hadn't heard any news of her lately I was hoping she died like so many of Dr. Drew's other patients do.

Uh, I remember her. She acted like a little diva. I couldn't stand the girl. It is bad enough she is doing drugs when she is a parent. But exposing her childs lungs and the rest of his system to that stuff??? What a selfish, disgusting brat.

She's a reality "star"? From a rehab reality show? So, she has made money being on a tv show about her being an addict? Amazing what some people will do to be on TV.

Good for him, Let's hope the judge will do what's in the best interest of the CHILD and not the MOTHER. Too many times the mother gets a free pass for screwing up her kid just because shes a woman. Anyone who does drugs (marijuana and prescription drugs are included), should have absolutely NO contact with their child until they are drug free and then only supervised visits. Children need to be protected from that crap, they don't need a mom who is messed up, they are better off without a mom then a druggie mom.

I have no idea who she is but know meth. Get the baby away from her, she should be stripped of all rights. Meth bores holes in adults brains, we have to suit up when there are cookers in homes. I cannot imagine the damage already done if in the baby's hair follicle.

I am sure there is suckling of her hair and clothes from a variety of sources.

This chick was and apparently still is a mess. WHy any guy would sleep with her , let a lone have a kid or marry her is beyond logic. Sick people always attract other sick people. Take this kid away until she has been sober for a good long time.
