Queens of the Stone Age frontman Joshua Homme’s sons have filed for a protective order against their father over concerns of physical and emotional abuse.
According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Orrin, 10, and Wolf, 5, accuse their father of being physically and verbally abusive. They specifically claim that Homme has grabbed Orrin’s genitals; thrown objects at both boys; flicked their ears and poked their chests; verbally taunted them; and has driven drunk with both of them in the car.
The boys filed the protective ordered through their mother, Brody Dalle, who filed for divorce from Homme in 2019. Dalle previously took out a restraining order against Homme after claiming he head-butted her. In turn, Homme sought a protect order against Dalle, claiming that she would show up at events he was attending in order to trigger a violation against him.
Homme’s attorney, Susan Wiesner, said in a statement that “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.”
Homme an Dalle’s third child, 15-year-old Camille Harley Joan Homme, is not a part of the filing.
