Tamra Judge and Simon Barney‘s custody arrangement for their three children has been volatile for years and judging by Simon’s latest claims, that won’t soon change.

On Wednesday, Simon took to his Instagram page to ask his fans and followers if anyone would be able to get him a ticket to attend the San Juan Hills High School graduation on June 7. As he explained, the Real Housewives of Orange County star did not give him a ticket to the event and he is desperate to see his son Spencer graduate.

“I didn’t receive a ticket and they are sold out,” he explained. “I’m desperate to go to my sons graduation and will pay. Please contact me on this account if you do. Thanks in advance.”

In the comments section of his post, Simon further explained that Tamra was refusing to give him one of the five tickets she received.  He wrote, “My x won’t give me one of the 5 she got and I can’t find one through normal channels.”

He also took his pleas to Twitter.


As fans may recall, Tamra and Simon’s oldest child, daughter Sidney Barney, graduated from high school last year and while she and her mother had been estranged for some time, Simon suggested Sidney allow her to attend the event. Then, in a shocking move, the reality star chose to share photos of the graduation on her Instagram page.

Throughout the past several years, Sidney has made it clear that she does not want to be included in any of her mother’s social media photos. She even released a public statement, begging her to stop posting images of her on her pages and requesting she stop referencing the drama between them on The Real Housewives of Orange County.

“[My father] forced me to let [Tamra] come to my graduation because it was a milestone,” Sidney wrote on Facebook after seeing that her mother had posted a photo of her online.

Sidney then revealed that Tamra had been under strict orders in regard to the event.

“When I told my mother that she could come I gave her a few conditions. All I asked was that she remains cordial with my father and my stepmom and to not post anything about my graduation, anywhere,” Sidney recalled. “Not even two weeks after I graduated she posted a photo of me and shared it with her one million followers knowing that it would get picked up by the press. The one thing I asked and have been asking for four years now has been to not talk about me because I don’t want to be in the spotlight.”

Sidney lived full time with her father after her parents divorce before traveling to the east coast for college. As for the ex-couple’s other two children, Spencer and Sophie, Spencer lives full time with Tamra while Sophie splits her time between her mom and dad.

UPDATE: Tamra has just responded to Simon by slamming him on social media.
