Homme’s attorney speaks
The singer’s attorney, Susan Wiesner, said:
“Ms. Dalle has previously brought these claims to the police, DCFS, and the presiding judge of the family law court, all of whom have declined to take any action based upon these spurious claims.”
Brody Dalle filed for legal separation from Josh Homme after their divorce in 2019. A restraining order was issued against the star after he reportedly went to Brody’s house in a drunken condition and attacked her.
His sons have requested restraining orders from the court that would keep Homme 100 yards away from them and their family dog.
