[photogallerylink id=51558 align=right]Rodney Atkins has filed for divorce from his wife, Tammy, after what he claims are false accusations of domestic violence.
Rodney firmly denies the allegations, and is working now to dissolve their marriage.
“This was an unfortunate verbal dispute between Mr. and Mrs. Atkins within hearing range of their child, and when Mr. Atkins realized their child was in hearing range of the argument, his first priority became getting out of the earshot of the child,” Rodney’s lawyer, Rose Palermo, writes in a statement given to The Boot. “That is when Mrs. Atkins called the police and gave them her version of the argument, which is completely untrue. Mr. Atkins realized he would have no recourse but to file a complaint for divorce. Since filing the complaint for divorce, he has exercised substantial parenting time with the parties’ son and he will continue to do so while the divorce is pending. The criminal complaint does not allege that any harm came to the child or Mrs. Atkins and as a result the Court has not prohibited Mr. Atkins from having parenting time with his son.”
“Mr. Atkins plans to spend significant time with his child over the Christmas holidays and respectfully requests privacy at this time,” Palermo concludes. “Mr. Atkins wants to thank his fans for standing by him as he is confident the truth will prevail.”
