Update on RHOC Star Shannon Beador’s Divorce and Custody Battle

Shannon Beador is battling with her soon-to-be ex-husband, David Beador, and we have learned that Shannon’s three daughters are siding with their mom.

“David’s relationship with the girls is suffering greatly from the split,” a source close to the family said, adding that Sophie, 16, and 13-year-old twins Stella and Adaline “witnessed first-hand the way that he treated their mom and vowed to never let a man treat them the same way!”

“The girls know that David is going to have to pay for what he did and how he acted during the marriage,” the source said. “In the meantime, they are continuing to do everything to be there for their mother so that she comes back fiercer than ever before!”

As we have previously reported, Shannon decided to file for divorce two years after David admitted to having an eight-month affair with a married family friend, Nicole McMackin, in 2015.

Even though the girls are siding with their mom, the insider insisted Shannon “has done her best to not sway their opinion of their father.”

However, Shanon’s “crying breakdowns at home that only they could see was heartbreaking” and likely changed their view of David, the insider said.

“On top of that, the girls have not had the same kind of relationship with their dad as they did with their mom because he was working all the time while they were growing up and rarely at home.”

Shannon is seeking full parental custody and is also requesting $25,000 to cover the cost of her attorney fees. In court documents filed on Dec. 4, Shannon claimed that David earned “more than five times” what she earned on Bravo.

“Shannon decided at their last week’s custody hearing that David should pay for all three of their daughter’s college tuition, in full. Basically, she is done with letting him walk all over her,” a source previously revealed.
