Roseanne Barr Sues Ex in Child Visitation Flap

Photo Courtesy - ABC News(NEW YORK) -- Roseanne Barr has returned the favor -- she's just sued her ex-husband and bodyguard, Ben Thomas.

Thomas filed suit against Barr in October for reneging on a divorce agreement with the comedienne that snagged him and his new wife nearly unlimited trips to Hawaii. E! reports the deal was part of a custody arrangement for Thomas to see Buck, his teenage son with Barr, that granted him up to 10 days per month in Hawaii, where Barr and Buck live. However, Thomas sued when Barr allegedly pulled out of the deal in an e-mail, declaring "I'm no longer interested in abiding by this ridiculous arrangement."

Thomas not only filed suit after that, but released details of his suit and divorce arrangements to the press -- including Barr's e-mail address, according to E! -- which led Barr to countersue, claiming her ex violated confidentiality clauses in their divorce paperwork.
