According to TMZ, Brody Dalle (The Distillers) recently filed two restraining orders against her ex-husband Josh Homme (Queens Of The Stone) on behalf of their young sons, Orrin and Wolf. However, her requests have since been denied by several judges.
Rolling Stone are also reporting that the restraining orders included handwritten accounts of abuse from Orrin and Wolf. Orrin said the following:
“Joshua Homme, myself, and Dean Fertida were sitting on the couch and my dad Joshua Homme reached over and grabbed my private parts even when I told him to stop and kept saying ‘Balls’ over and over.”
Orrin also accused Homme of shoving him, throwing items at him, and hitting him in the head. He continued:
“My dad calls me a liar and a traitor. He calls me fat and tells me that my mom says I’m fat. My dad screams in my face when I’m sleeping and punches the bed. He tells me that he has murdered people.”
“My dad said he was going to murder, shoot, and kill my mom’s boyfriend Gunner. I am scared he is going to hurt to kill them.”
Wolf also shared similar accounts, while adding:
“He is scary. I am scared when I go to Dad’s.”
Homme has denied the allegations with his attorney Susan Wiesner having told Rolling Stone the following:
“The allegations made by Ms. Dalle against Mr. Homme are categorically false. In order to protect the children, we will not be making any further statements.”
Wiesner also issued a separate statement to TMZ:
“Ms. Dalle has previously brought these claims to the police, DCFS, and the presiding judge of the family law court, all of whom have declined to take any action based upon these spurious claims.”
This news comes after Homme and Dalle previously filed restraining orders against each other. It also comes after Homme recently filed a new complaint against Dalle saying that she “currently has [their] children and refuses to return them to [him] for [his] custodial time” and that she “has withheld them from school and is non-responsive as to their whereabouts.” The next hearing is currently scheduled to take place on September 13.
