"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."
