Firing back in her divorce case, Anne Heche asks for full custody of her son and claims her ex-husband, Coley Laffoon, craves porn, poker and money.

Heche says in court papers that although Laffoon claims to be a stay-at-home dad, he actually leaves their 5-year-old son Homer "with nannies and babysitters while he plays ping-pong, backgammon and poker and views pornography online.

"He holds a poker game at his home every Thursday night and allows Homer to participate," the Men in Trees star says in a Los Angeles Superior Court filing released Thursday.

She adds that Laffoon bragged to cast members of her show, taped in Vancouver, that he "knew each strip joint in town."

Heche asks the judge to grant her sole legal and physical custody of their son, to give Laffoon visitation privileges, and to deny his request for support.

The judge can expect arguments from each side that the other parent is psychologically unfit.

In his court filing last week Laffoon, 33, said that Heche, 37, demonstrates "bizarre and delusional behavior."

"I have serious concerns about whether she is psychologically capable of caring for Homer for an extended period of time,” says Laffoon, who filed for divorce in February.

The former videographer, who says he quit a $6,000-a-year job to take care of Homer, is seeking primary custody and at least $33,000 a month in support, according to his filing. Heche claims that he's actually seeking $45,000 a month.

Laffoon's lawyer, Jon S. Summers, tells PEOPLE that "any suggestion that the statements were financially motivated is not only false, it's obscene."

""The statements contained in Anne's declaration about Coley are absolutely ridiculous and reflect the level of her desperation," Summers says.

In his court papers, Laffoon writes that he is entitled to child and spousal support "in the amount sufficient to maintain the marital standard of living and child support consistent with (Heche's) income."
