UFC Fighter Chuck Liddell appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom this week to ask a judge for full custody of his son. Chuck claims his son told him he didn’t want to live with his mother anymore.
According to reports, Cade Liddell was visiting his dad from Colorado when he appeared depressed and upset that he had to live with his mom, Lori Geyer. Chuck says Cade complained that he had been “living with a severe toothache for 2 to 3 months” and that he didn’t want to go back.
After hearing of his sons pain Chuck immediately took him to the dentist and now claims that his “health and safety are at risk.”
Chuck’s lawyer is also claiming that the boy was subjected to forced labor, specifically snow removal, a claim that probably won’t hold much water in court, after all if that was the case many of us as kids were probably “forced” to do that type of “work.”
A judge in the case has ruled that Colorado courts have jurisdiction in the custody battle and a hearing will occur on Tuesday.
