Adrienne Maloof

Wins Temporary Custody

Paul Allegedly Choked Kid

EXCLUSIVE

0919_adrienne_maloof_paul_nassif_article Adrienne Maloof was just awarded temporary custody of her three boys after telling a judge her estranged husband, Paul Nassif, choked one of their kids last Thursday ... TMZ has learned.

Adrienne's lawyer went to court and filed a declaration she wrote, in which she claimed Paul picked their 3 boys up from school Thursday. During the ride, 2 of the boys were kicking each other, when Paul allegedly reached back and choked one of the boys around the Adam's apple.

According to a separate declaration, filed by Adrienne, one of the boys told a psychiatrist ... Paul smacked him on his "wet bare bottom" because he had peed on his sibling in the bath, and then sent him to the corner for a time-out.

The couple's chef also filed a declaration, claiming he witnessed Paul kicking the family dog when it peed on the floor. And a DEA agent who is friends with the couple filed yet another declaration claiming he witnessed Paul putting his hands around the neck of one of the children.

Neither Paul nor his lawyer were present during the hearing -- they were never told about the hearing -- although we know Paul denies ALL of the allegations.

Paul's lawyer, Lisa Meyer, tells TMZ, "This smacks of underhandedness. Adrienne wasn't even present when this allegedly occurred." Meyer adds, "It is a sad day when parents have to stoop to the level of making false allegations against another parent." Meyer calls Adrienne's move "gamesmanship at its worst."

The kids probably deserved some ass-kicking… I am concerned about the dog...

You dudes have to be real desperate to wife up these knifed up, fake boobs, fake butts, fake persona, gold digging broads. They want the ring, the kids then your money. I'd rather wake up alone, laying in $100 bill all over my face, body and wang, then with this Frankenstein broad.

Adrienne has already been proven a underhanded liar, as seen on RHOBH. She is a munipulator, and just seems to be a bad person with no ethics. I have formed this opinion from watching the show of course. Paul has always seem pretty cool and nice, and adrienne was always mean to him on the show. I wouldn't put it past Adrienne to lie about these, and to force people to lie for her, that's how she is and she welds power like any other unethical witch. I hope that Paul didn't choke any of his children, however, the spanking seems acceptable to me. You should not piss on your brother, even if you are in the bathtub. I'm for team Paul.
