My Name Is Earl star Jaime Pressly is facing a possible custody fight over her three-year-old son Dezi with an ex-fiance, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
The move is the latest blow for the Hollywood actress, who filed for divorce after just 16 months of marriage and was arrested last month on suspicion of drink-driving in Santa Monica, California.
Speaking exclusively to RadarOnline.com, Eric Cubiche's mother declared: "Little Dezi is the most important thing in my son's life, and we will do anything to protect him."
Friends are growing increasingly concerned for Pressly, 33, an Emmy Award winner, after she spent a night behind bars for the alleged DUI before being released on $15,000 bail.
Adding to her woes, Pressly is being pursued by the Internal Revenue Service for $637,000 in unpaid taxes.
"Jaime and Eric have always had a nice relationship when it comes to my grandson Dezi, but that could change," Eric's mother Nairis Calvo told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview.
"My son remains focused on Dezi and everything is good with our family and my grandson. We're very protective of Dezi and want nothing but the best for that precious boy."
Said Nairis: "Jaime is in the past and we wish her well... She's been through a lot. It's a tough situation."
As RadarOnline.com exclusively revealed, the My Name Is Earl star filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences between her and entertainment lawyer Simran Singh on January 21.
The couple, who wed in September 2009, have no children together.
