Sara Evans Ex-Husband

I Only Got 25 Chickens

To My Name

6/17/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sara Evans' ex-husband has become a country music cliche ... fighting with his ex, dodging an arrest warrant, and so deep in debt his main assets are a couple dozen chickens.

Craig L. Schelske filed docs in his bankruptcy case, listing a mountain of debt and a sorry, short list of assets.  For starters he owes Evans $333K.  Lots of other debts as well.

Now the assets ... 25 chickens (valued at zero) and 2 bags of chicken feed.  And then there's 60 DVDs, 3 silver coins and 40 books, all worth a grand total of $100.  And of course there's a 12-gauge shotgun, a rifle and a hand gun. 

He also lists 4 vacuum cleaners and a card table.  As for cars -- he has a Ford F-250, a Chevy pickup, a Chevy Tahoe and a Honda 4-wheeler.

As for the warrant -- it seems Craig stopped paying Sara child-related expenses, so the judge slapped him with a contempt citation and made him a wanted man.

You may remember ... Evans and Schelske went through a brutal and ugly split ... he claimed she exposed their kids to drugs and alcohol on her tours ... she claimed he was banging the nanny and was obsessed with porn.

Chickens and porn ... a way to a man's heart.

I can understand a relationship falling apart and especially given the fact that she is gone a large portion of the time. However, I feel based on polygraphs in reference to accusations made by Sara, she has attempted to corrupt and defame Craig at all cost. She of course is in a better position to defend herself and her lies given her career. Children need both parents and they do not need one bashing the other just because they can. I do not believe he is guilty as she has charged and I believe her motives are strictly vindictive in an effort to gain custody of her children and avoid paying him anything. I too believe that she had met someone else and was wanting to move on. Again, this is ok, but do not do it at the expense of your children's relationship with their father. Since this first came out I have lost a lot of respect for her, not because she divorced him, but because she took the low road.
