Rosie O’Donnell’s Ex Wants Custody (Or Just Money)

Earlier this year, Rosie O’Donnell and wife Michelle Rounds decided to end their marriage after a little less than three years together. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like things are going to end peacefully, because Michelle has applied for full custody of their daughter Dakota – a movie Rosie’s people say is all about money.

From TMZ:

Rosie O’Donnell is fighting back against her estranged wife, and sources connected with Rosie say the wife is going for full custody of their daughter for one reason … money.

Michelle Rounds is filing legal docs Tuesday, asking for full custody of their 2-year-old daughter Dakota. Michelle’s lawyer told the New York Post full custody is necessary to protect the child’s “general welfare.”

But our Rosie sources are scoffing, saying that the couple has a prenup and this is nothing more than a money play, adding Rosie is a “devoted mother” and her parenting skills and dedication are well-documented.

The sources say Michelle is trying to hit Rosie where it hurts the most so she’ll open her wallet. One source says, “Michelle can’t even raise a dog … she’s given multiple dogs away.”

Well, that’s always nice, having your kids caught between petty ass adults. Definitely a great lesson to teach them. Of course, if Rounds is motivated – as her lawyer claims – by wanting to protect the best interest of the children, then that’s one thing. But Dakota isn’t Rosie’s only child – far from it. Clearly Rounds doesn’t doubt Rosie’s skills as a parent, so what gives?
