Hours after news of the handsome hunk filing for full custody made headlines on Thursday, April 28, the Orange County Superior Court judge ruled that Anstead, 43, had "insufficient showing" of concerns surrounding Hudson and didn't provide his former costar, 38, enough notice of his request, according to court documents obtained by Page Six.
The former spouses will now reportedly face off in court on June 28, where they will make arguments as to whether Anstead's requested change for custody should be granted.
Anstead and Haack's reps have yet to comment on the situation.
However, Haack candidly addressed her ex-husband's filing — in which the former Wheeler Dealers co-host called her a bad mom — on Thursday, admitting she was "deeply" saddened.
"If this was really about Hudson, as he says, this should have been handled privately with a private judge or mediation, as myself and my attorney have suggested," the blonde babe noted in a statement. "I have had my share of ups and downs but I am a good mom and I love my children with all my heart and I will always protect them."
The former Flip or Flip costars were granted joint legal and physical custody of their son last summer after announcing in September 2020 that they made the decision to go their separate ways.
The lovebirds wed in 2018 before welcoming their son in September of the following year. Haack also shares daughter Taylor, 11, and son Brayden, 6, with first husband Tarek El Moussa, while Anstead is dad to daughter Amelie, 18, and son Archie, 15, from his previous marriage to Louise Storey.
Amid news of their very public custody ordeal, Haack shared a cryptic quote from author Jonathon Muncy Storm about "toxic" people.
"When a toxic person can no longer control you, they will try to control how others see you," the Christina on the Coast reality star captioned her post, quoting Jill Blakeway. "The misinformation will feel unfair, but you stay above it, trusting that other people will eventually see the truth just like you did."
