Joshua Homme Gets New Restraining Order Against Brody Dalle, Alleges She Put Their Children “In Great Danger”
Joshua Homme’s publicity team has issued a statement on the Queens of the Stone Age frontman’s behalf concerning his long-running custody dispute with his ex-wife, the Distillers’ Brody Dalle. The statement follows the Los Angeles Family Court’s decision earlier this month to grant the Homme family, including the couple’s three children and Homme’s parents, a restraining order against Dalle for one year and 11 months, court records viewed by Pitchfork confirm.
The statement alleges that Dalle and her boyfriend, Gunner Foxx, “have not only caused the children emotional harm, but have also put them in great danger.” Pitchfork has reached out to Dalle’s representatives, as well as an attorney for Foxx, for comment. Read the full statement below.
In the past, Homme and Dalle’s custody dispute has resulted in restraining orders for both parties against each other. In September 2021, domestic violence restraining orders were filed against Homme on behalf of his two sons, alleging physically and verbally abusive behavior and drinking while driving. According to the statement today, Dalle testified that Foxx had forged her signatures on those filings, albeit with her knowledge.
In November 2021, Dalle was found guilty of misdemeanor contempt for withholding their youngest child from Homme’s court-mandated custodial time. (The two older children were judged to have chosen not to visit Homme of their own accord.) Dalle was sentenced to community service and handed a $1,000 fine. In March 2022, a court granted Homme sole legal custody of the couple’s three children until this fall. Five months later, Homme and his two sons, who are the younger of the three children, were granted a restraining order against Foxx, according to today’s statement.
