Well, if we shared custody shcfhe knew I’d never agree to let Carrie move, so things started to make sense. Then, you entered the picture. You make it sound like a plot. Wasn’t it? l[Since we got into court you took innuendo and turned it into fact, look personality traits and made them character flaws. In short, you pretty much made me about one step below Hitler.

This “spa” was a registered rehab center, was it not? Yes it was, but... That‘s all I said. Oh, come on, the way you told it I was on the streets knocking over liquor stoma. Look, we can go all day saying who did what to whom. but it won’t solve anything. The courts made their decision and as of right now you're a kidnapper. That’s all anyone’s going to see.
