David Beador‘s estranged wife, Lesley Beador, claims she’s “fearful” of the Real Housewives of Orange County alum after he allegedly poured mouthwash over her head in a “rage” and ran after her as she drove near her home.
As new details continue to be shared in regard to the “physical, mental, and emotional abuse” Lesley claims to have sustained throughout her six-year relationship with David, he and his former wife of 17 years, Shannon Beador, appear to have gotten their once-strained relationship to a better place.
“So proud of my daughters’ graduation!” Shannon proclaimed in a post shared on her Instagram page on June 12 of Stella and Adeline’s event. “They have grown into such beautiful young ladies, and I can’t wait to watch them in their exciting next chapters. Congratulations Stella and Adeline! I love you!!!”
And in addition to a shot of just her and the girls, and another that included friends, Shannon shared an image of herself, David, Stella, and Adeline.
Following their divorce filings last month, Radar Online shared details of Lesley’s petition for a restraining order against David on June 12, revealing that much of the supposed abuse Lesley sustained went unreported because she was afraid David would “cut [her] off financially” and take custody of two-year-old Anna.
In her court documents, Lesley said she’s seen erratic behavior from David since their breakup in May, accusing the RHOC alum of harassment and hostile antics, and stating that she wants primary custody of Anna with David limited to supervised visitation.
On one particular occasion, on June 3, Lesley told the court that David was running after her as she drove.
“[David] gave me the middle finger. I kept driving and did not stop. I became increasingly fearful that he would start running after me, so I drove home and locked my doors,” she stated, adding that she previously obtained an emergency protective order against him in December 2022.
Although Lesley showcased two physical injuries “during the time [she and David] were married,” she kept much of their drama to herself because David “would oftentimes close our joint accounts and take my credit cards from me so that I could not take care of Anna.”
Lesley also documented an incident in February in which David allegedly “was in a rage as he poured a Plax mouthwash on top of [her] head,” leading her to develop an eye infection. She also said she wants him to quit sharing images of their daughter on social media “to gain more social media” followers.
While David denied all claims against him, a judge chose to grant both him and Lesley orders that required the other to stay 100 yards away until a future hearing.
The Real Housewives of Orange County season 17 airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
