'Celeb Rehab' Star

Exposed Baby to Meth

... Says Husband

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.

While we're at it did you really call her the "Celebrity Rehab star"? That's her main claim to fame?

TMZ, this is getting really stupid. I just looked this nobody up on imdb and here is what I found:
A walk-on part as "Cheerleader" in Species III 2004, a one shot appearance as "Pauly's girlfriend" on some TV show called "Minding the Store" in 2005, and a bit part in some movie called "Grilled" in 2006.
.
Oh and "Sex Rehab" with Dr. Drew, 'Celebrity Rehab" with Dr. Drew, and "Sober House".
.
My question now is: Why?

First things first, I lived next to Kari for years in Hollywood and she is the absolute sweetest girl once you know her. She's had and clearly still has drug problems which to me makes this story sadly & completely true... But she's still a great person and had a rough up-bringing which none of you probably care about, which is a true testament to your real character. Go on with your internet comments you filthy, worthless, media-crawling losers. Peace
