In late August, Ashley Jones (ex-Bridget, The Bold and the Beautiful; ex-Megan, The Young and the Restless) filed for divorce from her husband, Joel Hendricks, and received a restraining order against him. Now, Hendricks has legally responded to his wife of four years.

Henricks' reply to Jones' filing cites "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the divorce, according to People. He has requested to receive spousal support, asked for his ex to cover his legal fees, and wants joint legal and physical custody of the couple's toddler son.

Jones alleged that she was afraid for her and her son's safety, claiming her ex abused her for years. She even detailed a spiral fracture in her wrist, which Jones said Henricks caused by grabbing her phone and crushing her hand. Henricks has allegedly been stalking and harassing her since she left him. The court's restraining order is in place until November 20.
