Christina Ricci’s contentious divorce with her ex-husband James Heerdegen is still causing the actress headaches, despite being married to someone new.

Heerdegen, 39, has filed a request with the courts for the spousal and child support from the Yellow Jackets star for himself and their seven-year-old son Freddie, People reported on Tuesday.

Additionally, Heerdegen is asking for the 41-year-old star to pony up and extra roughly $50,000 to cover his attorney’s fees, noting that his finances are dire.

‘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,’ read court documents obtained by People. 

‘Absent a support order, James anticipates that he will soon be completely broke and is even now floundering in debt,’ it continued. A judge has yet to rule on the request.

James was a dolly grip whom Christina met while they were both working on the short-lived television series Pan Am.  The Now and Then star and Heerdegen tied the knot back in 2013 and divorced in 2020.  

Upon filing for divorce in July 2020 she accused him of ‘physical and emotional abuse,’ and she later got a domestic violence restraining order against him.

The restraining order was granted after she claimed James said he would only have sympathy for her if she were ‘dismembered into small pieces,’ allegedly prompting her to hide the knives in their home.

James was subsequently denied his request for a restraining order against Christina, whom he has accused of flying into drunken rages in front of him and Freddie.

In his court documents, exclusively obtained by DailyMail.com, he included pictures of her ‘in a state of severe intoxication wherein she was ”blacked out” and passed around by numerous third parties who seem to find humor in the situation.’

'Absent a support order, James anticipates that he will soon be completely broke and is even now floundering in debt,' it continued. A judge has yet to rule on the request.

He also claimed that he when Freddie was little he, James, would have to check the breast milk bottles for alcohol and dispose of the ‘contaminated’ ones.

In the wreckage of their marriage they waged a legal battle over little Freddie that culminated in Christina getting full custody but James retaining visitation rights.,

Ricci, who is currently starring in the psychological thriller Yellow Jackets, has since moved on romantically and tied the knot in October with husband Mark Hampton.

At the end of 2021, Ricci and Hampton welcomed their first child together, daughter Cleopatra Ricci Hampton.
