Tamra Barney Is 'Saddened' After Ex-Husband Claims She Is a Negligent Mother

Originally posted 04/16/2014 05:30PM

The Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney is speaking out after ex-husband Simon Barney alleged in court documents that the reality star has been neglectful when it comes to caring for their three children.

"I am saddened by the false stories my ex-husband has released," Tamra tells PEOPLE exclusively. "He has no foundation to his allegations and in my opinion will do anything to destroy me. Unfortunately, he is hurting our children and my family in the process."

In the documents filed March 28 and obtained by RadarOnline, Simon alleges that "especially in recent times, Tamra has been very neglectful in her care for the children. This has resulted in the children not getting prompt medical care, nutritional meals, hygienic care, and deterioration in their school work and attendance."

"They were overheard saying they were all going to dinner to celebrate Heather's guest role," the source adds.
