In 2019, the lead singer of the Distillers, Brody Dalle, filed for divorce after 14 years of marriage with the lead singer of Queens Of The Stone Age, Josh Homme. Since the split, the two have been trying to civilly abide by the 50/50 custody agreement for their three children while keeping it out of the public’s eye, but in 2020 things took a turn for the worse.

In a new statement, Homme revealed that Dalle had violated the agreement by, “withholding the children from seeing their father. Despite multiple orders by the Los Angeles Family Court to return the children, as well as being found in contempt of court, Dalle continued to violate the custody agreement.”

According to the statement, things continued to get ugly in 2021 when Dalle tried to file a restraining order against Homme on behalf of their two sons. The court denied the action, and, “It has since been revealed in court proceedings that this restraining order was drafted and filed by Gunner Foxx [Dalle’s boyfriend], who forged Dalle’s signature on the document. Dalle later testified in court to having known at the time that Foxx had forged her signature, while doing nothing to set the record straight legally or in the media.”

It was also around this time that Homme’s daughter filed a restraining order against him, claiming he emotionally and physically abused the family. After being investigated by the Los Angeles DCFS and Los Angeles Family Court, it was determined that living with their father is in the best interest of the children, and Homme’s daughter’s order was rescinded.

In March 2022, Homme was made the sole legal guardian of the children and Dalle was granted supervised visitations. In August 2022, Homme and his two sons, “were granted a restraining order protecting them from Gunner Foxx, preventing him from making any contact with them whatsoever for a period of five years,” the statement said.

On March 16, 2023, the Los Angeles Family Court issued a restraining order against Dalle for the protection of Homme, the children, and Homme’s parents.

Homme finished his statement by saying, “The goal of the Los Angeles Family Court System and Joshua Homme’s sincere hope is that the conclusion of this matter will result in the ability for both Homme and Dalle to co-parent their children peacefully.”
