Somewhat reminiscent of the recent Depp v. Heard drama, Fantastic Four actor Ioan Gruffudd has made serious allegations against his estranged partner Alice Evans. The couple got married in 2007 and were involved in a bitter divorce battle. The ex-couple has two daughters and is currently embroiled in a custody battle over them.
In fresh court documents, Ioan Gruffudd has alleged severe and persistent abuse from his estranged wife. We take a closer look at this story in this article.
Ioan Gruffudd Levels Serious Allegations Against Estranged Wife Alice Evans
As aforementioned, actor Ioan Gruffudd has made serious allegations of abuse by his estranged wife Alice Evans in new court documents. These were submitted to the Los Angeles Superior Court this week in a petition seeking joint custody of his daughters.
Gruffudd alleges that: “Alice told me regularly, and in front of the children, that she wanted a divorce, that I was stupid and a failure, and that she would call the police if I did not do what she demanded,”
He further claims that since Alice Evans moved out of their shared home following their separation she “has inflicted serious emotional harm on Ella and Elsie by her statements and by interfering in my relationship with them.” Moreover, the Fantastic Four actor alleges that Evans “belittled” and “berated” him in front of their daughters, Ella, 12, and Elsie, 8, and has “encouraged and instructed them not to see me or communicate with me,” which has hindered him from spending quality time with his children.
The long saga of the bitter dispute between the two involved Gruffudd seeking a restraining order against his estranged wife at one point, a few months ago.
Alice Evans responded to these allegations via Instagram. She wrote: Witch-hunt. He has refused to see them for over a year. I am sickened to the point of breaking down. Do you guys want to see some if the horrible messages he has sent my beautiful Ella over the past year?
