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.
â€œDavidâ€™s relationship with the girls is suffering greatly from the split,â€ a source close to the family said, adding that Sophie, 16, and 13-year-old twins Stella and Adaline â€œwitnessed first-hand the way that he treated their mom and vowed to never let a man treat them the same way!â€
â€œThe girls know that David is going to have to pay for what he did and how he acted during the marriage,â€ the source said. â€œIn the meantime, they are continuing to do everything to be there for their mother so that she comes back fiercer than ever before!â€
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 â€œhas done her best to not sway their opinion of their father.â€
However, Shanonâ€™s â€œcrying breakdowns at home that only they could see was heartbreakingâ€ and likely changed their view of David, the insider said.
â€œOn 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.â€
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 â€œmore than five timesâ€ what she earned on Bravo.
â€œShannon decided at their last weekâ€™s custody hearing that David should pay for all three of their daughterâ€™s college tuition, in full. Basically, she is done with letting him walk all over her,â€ a source previously revealed.
