Josh Homme's children file restraining order, citing physical and emotional abuse
The Queens of the Stone Age frontman's lawyer called the allegations "spurious" and said that they had previously been dismissed.
Josh Homme's children are reportedly filing for legal protection from the Queens Of The Stone Age frontman, claiming that they're scared of him, citing physical and emotional abuse.
According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Homme's sons Orrin, 10, and Wolf, 5, have filed for domestic violence restraining orders against the musician through their mother Brody Dalle.
Homme’s attorney Susan Wiesner has said that her client denies all of the claims, telling TMZ:
“Ms. Dalle has previously brought these claims to the police, DCFS and the presiding judge of the family law court, all of whom have declined to take any action based upon these spurious claims.”
The boys reportedly say that they’re scared Homme is going to hurt them, with Orrin alleging a recent incident occurred where his father grabbed his genitals.
The documents are also said to outline claims where Orrin alleges that Homme is physically abusive. These include instances of hitting his head, throwing things at him, flicking his ears, driving drunk with him and his brother in the car, and making threats about murdering Dalle’s partner.
Wolf is said to have made similar claims.
According to NME, Dalle took out a restraining order following their 2019 divorce, claiming Homme showed up at her house and head-butted her.
Homme later took out a protection order against Dalle, alleging she would show up at events he was attending to trigger a violation of the order against him, the music publication reported.
