The Dixie Chicks’ lead singer Natalie Maines’ divorce from her husband of 17 years is getting nasty! exclusively learned that the singer’s ex, Adrian Pasdar, is accusing her of displaying “aggressive” behavior and “playing games” in court.

In a lengthy court document filed on Monday, Feb. 4, Pasdar made it clear that he is going broke and that Maines is to blame.

“Petitioner’s filing of the instant motion shortly after Respondent’s new counsel had entered the case and at a time when Respondent has no money with which to fund this litigation, is clear gamesmanship,” Pasdar stated. “When playing such games, however, Petitioner’s counsel should have been more careful to play by the rules.”

The former couple was married for 17 years. They have two children together. As reported, Maines filed for divorce in June 2017.

Pasdar continued that Maines “has decided to aggressively litigate this divorce, knowing that Respondent has no access to funds to pay the substantial past and future attorneys fees and costs.”


As a result, Pasdar demanded the court order the lead singer to pay a sum of $6,220 for “unsuccessfully” filing a motion to compel, and another $10,000 “as a deterrence to further bad faith acts” by her and her counsel.

Additionally, Pasdar’s attorneys claimed that the exes’ premarital agreement is still an issue. The attorneys claimed they are unsure of whether or not it is “valid.”

Additionally, Pasdar blasted his ex-wife and her lawyers for filing its most recent motion one month late. According to Pasdar’s representation, Maines had until November 5, 2018 to file a motion to compel. However, the Dixie Chicks singer filed it on December 3, 2018 without an extension, the document claimed.

“If let off the hook for this bad faith Motion to Compel, her aggressive behavior will certainly continue!” the shocking papers stated.

According to online reports, Pasdar previously demanded $60,000 a month in spousal support despite that he allegedly earned $400,000 last year.
