As we first reported, last year, Christina and James settled their bitter divorce. She received most of the custody of their son and both agreed to not receive support.

The split was extremely nasty with Christina accusing James of abuse during their marriage. She even obtained a temporary restraining order against her ex.

Despite settling in 2022, months later, Christina rushed to court demanding James be stripped of custody. She claimed the child’s therapist suggested the move based on James’ behavior.

James opposed the move and demanded custody stay as is. He accused Christina of “psychological abuse” of their child and claimed she bad-mouthed him in front of their son.

James said Ricci even called Child Protective Services on him to have an investigation launched. He said the agency declined to pursue a case.

The judge ended up suspending James’ overnight visits until the upcoming hearing. Both agreed to attend therapy classes to try and resolve those issues.

However, in Christina’s new filing, she makes it clear none of the issues have been fixed and she doesn’t want James’ custody reinstated.

She said she has “endured years of abuse from” James. Christina claims he continues to let their son watch R-rated films, asks him questions about her and her life, smokes cigarettes in the car with their minor child and has been causing numerous other problems.

Further, she said James has “resorted to illegally recording” their son for the purpose of using the videos of him talking in court.

In regard to his claim that she was forcing their son to work 12-hour days on the Yellowjackets set in Canada. Christina said, “there is no evidence to support his claim.” She said their son did not work in Canada.

“He hung out with me while I was on set and we jokingly said he was my assistant,” Ricci wrote.

The judge has yet to rule.
