Paul Nassif

Child Abuse Claim

UNFOUNDED

TMZ has learned ... the Department of Children and Family Services has determined Adrienne Maloof's child abuse claims against estranged hubby Paul Nassif are unfounded, and Paul will go to court tomorrow to get his kids back.

As we first reported, Adrienne went to court last week, claiming Paul choked one of their kids and struck another.  Adrienne submitted declarations by several people, including Dr. Charles Sophy, who claims he interviewed the boys and they verified the abuse.

But we've learned DCFS strongly disagrees.  Sources tell us DCFS has written a report -- after interviewing the boys -- categorically concluding there was no such abuse.

Sources tell TMZ ... Paul is going to court Wednesday to ask a judge to throw out the temporary custody order -- along with the order prohibiting Paul from going near his kids -- on grounds Adrienne phonied the claim. 

What's more, we're told Paul will ask for sanctions against his estranged wife, claiming she viciously concocted the abuse story to get revenge.

The courts need to punish her for this so she feels it.Not just tell her she was wrong, she should have to spend in jail and lost custody of the kids.

"Dr. Sophy" and "Dr. Drew" are cut from the same self-promoting, fame-hungry cloth. He is always the psychiatrist Drew calls on when his drunie/druggies need a real psych., but fat lot of good that does any of them. Their success rate appears to be about zero. The only real success is that woman who runs his drug house has had a make-over.

I'm so glad Paul will be able to get his boys back ... very disappointed in Adrienne and her attorney(s). At least the one time I met her, she seemed like a nice person. Now, I just don't know ... hope Paul and the boys enjoy the new ride!

This is disgusting. Adrienne should be ASHAMED of herself. As for Dr. Sophy, this man is a famewhore and obviously for rent for the right price. As far as I am concerned, this kind of thing is child abuse.
