Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme has had a protective order filed against him on behalf of his children.
According to TMZ, Homme’s 10-year-old son Orrin and his 5-year-old son Wolf have filed for domestic violence orders against him through their mother, Brody Dalle. The order claims the children describe Homme as “scary” and detailed the alleged abusive behavior.
“According to the request filed in court ... Orrin claims there was a recent incident where Homme grabbed his private parts, and he also alleges his father drinks alcohol while his kids are in the car with him,” TMZ writes.
The order goes on to describe alleged physical abuse against Orrin “such as flicking his ears, hitting his head, poking his chest and throwing things at him -- while calling him fat and allegedly making threats about murdering Brody's boyfriend.”
The documents also claim that Homme calls their mother curse words, drinks and drives, and grabs their necks and ears. 5-year-old Wolf claims that he’s scared whenever he goes to visit Homme. The family has asked the court to grant restraining orders, which would require Homme to stay 100 yards away from them and the family dog.
The Queens of the Stone Age singer’s attorney, Susan Wiesner, issued a statement to 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."
Homme and Dalle were married from 2005 to 2019 and share one other child, 15-year-old Camille, who is not mentioned in the report.
