Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge has finally settled her custody battle with her ex-husband Simon Barney. Simon will get sole custody of their oldest daughter Sidney, who is 16 years-old.
“Simon Barney shall have sole physical custody of Sidney Nicole Barney … Tamra Barney Judge shall have visitation with Sidney Nicole Barney every other weekend, and one day midweek from 4:00 to 7:00 pm every week, and any other additional times at Sidney’s discretion,” court docs obtained by RadarOnline state.
We reached out to Tamra to get her reaction to the settlement and she exclusively told us that the agreement was reached outside of court and that the family is in a good place, despite what false reports have claimed.
“Simon and I came to terms outside of court,” Tamra tells us. “We both want what’s best for our daughter, her happiness is what matters most. Sidney’s wish was to have her main residence at her dad’s. She is 16 and can chose where she wants to live. There was no loss in court for me, the judge threw out the original case.”
“We are all in a good place and continue to work on family,” Tamra adds. “I have never told my daughter that she was not welcomed in my house due to her relationship with her father, flat out lie! I encourage my kids to love both their parents. Custody of our other kids still remain the same 50/50.”
All of Simon’s previous claims were thrown out of court and there was no change of custody.
