Shannon and David Beador's court drama last week has created a Christmas catastrophe for the couple's three teen daughters, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
According to a source, Sophie, 16, and twins Stella and Adeline, 14, are being torn between their estranged parents — who are both demanding that the girls spend the holiday with them.
As Radar reported, last week David, 54, filed a request in court asking that Shannon be prohibited from drinking around the girls after watching The Real Housewives of Orange County star have a complete breakdown on last season's reunion when confronted by cast mates over her drinking, which they referred to as "self-medicating."
"Shannon wants David to drop his insane request over alcohol and her drinking because she has already dealt with the situation," the source told Radar.
"She does not want this to cause her to have to spend Christmas alone. She wants her daughter's to be with her for the holiday," said the source.
To add fuel to the fire, David's younger girlfriend, Lesley Cook, 34, taunted Shannon by sharing a photo on Instagram of the three stockings she had already hung for David's daughters.
But Radar has learned that both sides are going to get the girls, as they are spending half of the day with their mother and there other half with David — meaning they will likely get double the gifts!
