Eva Marcille has much to celebrate. On Friday, December 13, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star was granted full custody of her 5-year-old daughter, Marley Rae, who she shares with ex-boyfriend Kevin McCall
A judge in Fulton County, Georgia dismissed Kevin’s, 34, request for custody and child support based on a technicality, according to reports. The “Naked” singer wanted the case to be moved down south after Eva, 35, had already been granted full custody in 2014 by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge. According to legal documents, Kevin didn’t give adequate reasoning as to why the case should be moved, therefore resulting in the dismissal of his case.
Eva and Kevin have been in and out of court for some time now. The Bravo star called her ex a “ticking time bomb” and requested that the judge not give him custody of their daughter after he reportedly made a series of violent threats. During a taping of The Rickey Smiley Morning Show, the American’s Next Top Model star recalled the violent nature of her relationship with Kevin after giving birth to their daughter. “About a month after having Marley, it didn’t stop; it got worse,” the model said. “And it got worse with her.”
As reported in November, Kevin was arrested in the Fulton County courthouse on Tuesday, October 6 following a physical altercation with a courthouse security guard. The fight happened just before a custody hearing was set to begin over his daughter.
The producer refused to stop sharing videos to his Instagram live while in the courthouse after guards repeatedly told him that it wasn’t allowed.
Kevin allegedly threatened a guard and challenged him to take off his badge and fight. “All sheriffs and cops don’t talk to me unless you gon’ take your badge off and go lock yourself in a room,” Kevin said. “I’ll beat you n****s up… goin’ to get my baby.”
When backup arrived to try and detain Kevin, he broke loose. Shortly after, officers attempted once again to try and detain him, according to cops on the scene, Kevin and a sergeant fell down a nearby escalator.
The “Deuces” rapper was hit with four misdemeanors charges including obstruction of a law enforcement officer, terroristic threats, disorderly conduct and simple assault. The rapper was also hit with one felony count for criminal damage to property in the 2nd degree.
