Tamra Barney's 15-Year-Old Daughter Claims Her Reality TV Mom Is ‘Verbally & Emotionally Abusive,’ and She Also Forged Child’s Homework


RadarOnline.com:
Not only is Tamra Barney‘s ex-husband accusing the Real Housewives of Orange County star of child neglect, but Simon Barney also claims his three children are suffering at school because of their mother’s “high-profile” job and her eldest daughter says the reality TV star is “verbally and emotionally abusive.”

Simon says the kids are ridiculed and bullied, and in documents exclusively obtained by RadarOnline.com, he provides proof that they are often tardy for school — and Tamra was even accused of allegedly forging daughter Sophia‘s reading log by the 8-year-old’s teacher!

“These minor children are not going through the same issues as other minor children in their community. They are going through the same issues, exemplified with Respondent’s position in the spotlight. The children suffer from ridicule and bullying in school and isolation from their fellow peers,” the court documents filed on March 28 state.

“Respondent’s neglectful behavior is evident in Sophia’s school homework, which is often incomplete and her attendance record in school. Petitioner learned that Respondent may have forged Sophia’s school reading logs. This was brought to Petitioner’s attention by his daughter Sophia’s teacher, [redacted] and by Sophia herself.”

In particular, Tamra’s estranged 15-year-old daughter — who now lives solely with Simon at her own requestSidney claims her mother is verbally and emotionally abusive and her status in the public eye results in harassment from her teenage peers.

“Sidney continues to claim that her mother is verbally and emotionally abusive towards her and does not give her the attention she needs as a daughter,” the legal docs read.

“She further contends that Respondent’s behavior in the media causes her embarrassment and results in ridicule and harassment from her peers.”

Tamra has three children with Simon; Sidney, 15, Spencer, 13, and Sophia, 8.
