After their agonistic split, Christina Ricci's ex-husband James Heerdegen is requesting spousal and child support from the actress.

Heerdegen, 39, has filed a request for child support for their 7-year-old son Freddie, as well as spousal support and a request that Ricci covers the cost of his attorney's fees, totaling $50,000, according to court documents.

According to the documents, he also requested Ricci cover the cost of forensic accountant fees listed as $50,000.

"James is in desperate need of a fee order as he no longer has any savings, including even his retirement, having depleted them for legal fees, rent payments, and security deposits," the request read. "Absent a support order, James anticipates that he will soon be completely broke and is even now floundering in debt."

The two married in 2013 after meeting on the set of the show Pan Am.

Ricci filed for divorce from Heerdegen in July 2020. In January 2021, the Yellowjackets actress obtained a domestic violence restraining order against Heerdegen after she accused him of physical abuse in court documents.

In her filing, Ricci said she was subjected to "severe physical and emotional abuse" by Heerdegen, with "many of these acts of abuse" taking place in front of their son.

That month, Heerdegen's attorney Larry Bakman said in a statement that his client"unequivocally denies all allegations of abuse made by Ms. Ricci as having occurred in 2020."

In April 2021, the two agreed on a custody arrangement for their young son. Ricci married hairstylist Mark Hampton in October 2021, two months after she first revealed that the couple was expecting their first child together.

They welcomed daughter Cleopatra Ricci Hampton in early December.
