I will withhold judgment until more information comes out. Anyone can make an accusation that you said something threatening to them. It's he said, she said. I wonder how far it went and what proof there was. Many women are truly in need of protection, but it's sad that some use the system as a means for revenge or some other tool. I'll await to see if it turns out to be true. I bet Patti will get to the bottom of it.
And as far as child support goes. I haven't seen any court orders yet. Many people get behind on child support if their obligation is based on one income and then they lose their job and are making much less. You have to file a motion in court to have the amount revisited. It can take a long time to get it changed to the proper amount. I'm not saying that is what happened to this guy, but I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, until it's proven otherwise.
That said, I still thought their relationship seemed strained or forced or something off. Who knows?
