Adrienne Maloof is "very concerned" by her estranged husband Paul Nassif's decision to carry a gun in his briefcase and particularly worried that the couple's young children could get their hands on the firearm, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
It was revealed in court Friday morning that Maloof recently took a photo of the handgun, something that Nassif took great offense to and tried to imply had a sinister motive.
"Adrienne was very, very concerned about Paul having a handgun in his possession while being around the children," a source close to the situation tells Radar. "Paul keeps the handgun unloaded in his briefcase with the ammunition in another bag, but Adrienne is still worried about it. During Paul's visit with the children last week, which takes place at Adrienne's mansion, she took a picture of the gun because she is VERY concerned about the safety of their three children and wanted photographic evidence of it. Yes, Paul does keep the ammunition in another bag, but it's still extremely dangerous to have that around children, especially boys."
As previously reported, Nassif requested temporary custody of his three sons and for a judge to order Maloof out of the family mansion so he can move back in. However, the judge shot down his request and found there were no grounds to strip Maloof of custody.
