Comedian Aries Spears, who was a former regular on “MADtv,” agreed to give his estranged wife Elisa Larregui full physical and legal custody of their three year old son after he allegedly threatened her with a baseball bat during a domestic dispute February.
Elisa Larregui sought a restraining order against Aries Spears on February 11, claiming that he was a verbally abusive parent. He has agreed to stay at least 100 yards away from her and their son, and will pay for them to move to Florida. President Obama said it best, “Any fool can have a child. That doesn’t make you a father. It’s the courage to raise a child that makes you a father.” Aries Spears will live to regret his shortcomings as a father, including being verbally abusive to the child’s mother.
TMZ reports Aries Spears’ lawyer issued the following statement: “The family is mending and for the moment, they have chosen to place some distance between themselves. Aries and Elisa have been communicating peaceably and have worked things out between themselves. Aries looks forward to spending quality time with his son.”
Elisa Larregui’s complaint was filed four days after she filed for divorce from the comedian, citing irreconcilable differences. They were married for less than three years.
