Eight months ago we found out that Jay Mohr filed for divorce from Nikki Cox. A few weeks later he changed his mind. Then last December, he filed divorce paper to quit Nikki Cox a second time. This second divorce filing appears to be the one that’s sticking. And just like his attempts at filing for divorce, their custody battle is also turning into a bit of a shit show.
Nikki and Jay were married for ten years, and their divorce should be cut and dry, but it’s complicated because they have a five-year-old son named Meredith Mohr. People says that Jay filed documents earlier this month requesting sole physical custody and joint legal custody of Meredith. He has requested Nikki receive “reasonable visitation“, but that her visits be “professionally supervised.” The reason for that is because Jay alleges Nikki is deep in some drug and mental health issues.
According to the documents, Jay and Nikki are living in the same house, and he wants to leave ASAP and take Meredith with him. Jay alleges that Nikki’s refusal to take care of her mental health and her “failure to respect boundaries” forced him to find another place to live. As for what makes Nikki the sort of mom who needs supervised visits, Jay has many examples. Jay alleges that Nikki has left the oven on while she and Meredith were asleep, she left the backdoor open at night, and accidentally gave their kid a double dose of medicine which caused him to barf in his sleep.
Jay also wants away from Nikki because he claims Nikki is a horny mess who comes into his bedroom in the middle of the night looking for sex. He also alleges that she tried to seduce him by telling him he got her pregnant again. Jay says that’s impossible, because he’s shooting blanks.
And then there are some darker accusations, shades of Robin Thicke and Paula Patton darker. Jay alleges Nikki is abusing drugs, claims she has threatened suicide twice, and that she never really leaves the house and doesn’t see people anymore. He also claims Nikki will lock herself in her bedroom and go days without seeing their kid, despite them being in the same house. He says Nikki has never spent 24 hours alone with their son (their son apparently gets his care from Jay and a nanny).
That’s not to say Nikki never hangs out with their kid. Jay claims he has found Nikki and Meredith eating candy and watching cartoons at 2am. I mean, I’ll be honest. Everything about this situation terrible. But at least there’s one happy thought in all of this. Candy and cartoons in bed waaaaaay past your bedtime? That sounds better than Christmas and Halloween combined.
