Madison Wallstook a break from social media when she gave up custody of her daughter with Tony Raines amid drug rumors. After RadarOnline.com exclusively broke the custody drama, the Real World: Skeletons star is coming clean about her “issues.”
“I went MIA for a little while because I needed to get my headspace right again,” she said on Instagram live Tuesday night. “I really wanted to focus on redirecting my life in a way… I wanted to move forward.”
She added that she was “super depressed” and “wasn’t the healthiest.” Although she didn’t admit drug use, she confessed that she went to therapy and alcohol anonymous meetings.
“I was doing soul searching,” she said. “I practiced meditation. I needed a lot of therapy. I got issues! I needed a break from the drama, world outside of just myself. I was in an unhealthy situation. I wanted to get mentally back into a good state of mind.”
“She then said of giving up custody of her daughter, “I want to do what’s right for Harper. She’s my entire world. I have the great support of my family who keeps me accountable for everything I do. ”
This is the first time Walls has addressed relapse rumors to fans. The speculation started when Walls posted a now-deleted scary skinny photo. She also appeared to have track marks on the inside of her arm. Walls is a former heroin user, she opened up about her addiction to the MTV show.
Radar then reported that her parents Cally and Michael Shapshak asked the court to grant them sole custody of Harper, 2.
In Walls’ response to the petition, filed on July 13, 2018, she wrote, “I want my parents to have custody of my daughter.”
In Raines’ response, he denied that appointing him and Walls, 27, as managing conservators would not be in the best interest of Harper.
“Respondent also specifically denies the allegation that it is in the best interest of the child that Petitioners, the child’s grandparents, be appointed sole managing conservators of the child,” the papers read.
Earlier this month, everyone agreed to a temporary custody order.
Raines will have unsupervised possession and access to Harper from Friday, December 21, 2018 to Thursday, December 27, 2018, Friday, January 18th, 2019 to January 21st, 2019, and Friday, February 15, 2019 to Monday, February 18th, 2019.
“Mr. Raines shall be entitled to possession of Harper beginning at 11:40am on the third Friday of each month until the following Monday at 11:40am,” the court papers read.
The agreement then brought up Walls’ substance abuse issues.
“Ms. Walls shall have possession and access as agreed by Ms. Walls, Mr. Shapshak and Mrs. Shapshak,” the papers read. “However, all such periods of possession shall be supervised by Mr. or Mrs. Shapshak. Ms. Walls is currently residing on the property of Mr. and Mrs. Shapshak due to the need for support at this time.”
The papers continued that in the event Walls has a “relapse,” the parties “agree to recognize that Ms. Walls shall therefore no longer be permitted to reside on the property of Mr. and Mrs. Shapshak and shall immediately enter inpatient.”
The parties are also prohibited from “consuming any controlled substance for which they do not have a valid prescription” and consuming any alcohol to the point of intoxication any time the respective party has Harper.
Raines shall continue to pay child support in the amount of $111.25, while Walls is to pay her parents $50 a month.
The parties are to attend mediation on February 15, 2019.
Walls’ mother also denied rumors exclusively to Radar.
“She’s doing great,” she said. “Nothing is wrong. She’s fine. No [she’s not on drugs.]”
She added of the custody filing, “The conservatorship is because it’s our family raising Harper. Tony isn’t involved. We just want to protect her. He does post about her a lot on social media, especially for someone not on the birth certificate.”
