I felt immediately crazy protective over him and wanted to keep him for myself and get to know each other before the tornado (media attention) hit."

"We decided whats in the past, is in the past. We aren't looking at all the nonsense online," she added. "So yes 'another relationship' and guess what. I'm 38 – I'll do what I want."

April 28, 2022: Anstead filed for full custody of Hudson.

On Thursday, Anstead filed an emergency request for full custody of Hudson.

In his court filing, Anstead said he was Hudson's "primary parent," saying Hall only spends an average of "9 full days each month" with their son each month, according to People.

TMZ also reported that Anstead said in the court documents that Hall had put Hudson in "dangerous" situations, including a sunburn so severe it made him cry.

On another occasion, Anstead said Hall returned Hudson to him without telling him her family had COVID. "At the time my partner was filming her new project and her covid diagnosis placed the whole production on pause," he said in the filing according to TMZ, referring to his current girlfriend Renée Zellweger.

The filing went on to say that Hall uses her time with Hudson to post him on social media, sometimes for sponsored content, as People reported. Anstead requested a judge block Hall from posting Hudson in any "commercial endeavor" until they reach a new custody agreement, according to the outlet.

People reported that Anstead was requesting a "regular" custody schedule that would give Hall visitation rights on "alternating weekends, Friday at 4:00 p.m. until Sunday at 6:00 p.m. commencing May 6, 2022, in California only, and except for vacations."

"This will allow Christina's time to be stepped-up over the next several months to match the schedule she has with her other children," the filing said, according to People.

Anstead declined to comment on the matter when contacted by Insider.

April 28, 2022: Hall rebuked Anstead's claims in a statement to Insider.

"What Ant is doing deeply saddens me," Hall said. "If this was really about Hudson, as he says, this should have been handled privately with a private judge or mediation, as myself and my attorney have suggested."

"I have had my share of ups and downs, but I am a good mom and I love my children with all my heart and I will always protect them," she went on to say.

She also posted a Jill Blakeway quote on Instagram on Thursday that seemed pointed at Anstead.

April 28, 2022: A judge denied Anstead's emergency custody request.

A judge denied Anstead's ex parte custody application on Thursday both because he did not give Hall enough notice and he did not provide sufficient evidence that Hudson was in danger, according to People.

The judge's ruling states there will be a hearing on June 28 to determine whether or not Anstead's custody request should be granted, as People reported.

Representatives for Anstead did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment. A representative for Hall declined to comment on the ruling.
