Jaime King's representative has responded to claims made by her estranged husband Kyle Newman, that she is battling an 'out of control' opioid addiction.

However, a rep for the actress hit back, telling PEOPLE: 'This is another vicious, failed attempt of Kyle to continue his abuse of Jaime and manipulate the court system.'

 'Today Kyle was denied all requests for emergency orders and the judge granted Jaime shared legal custody of their two children,' adding: 'The temporary domestic violence restraining order remains in place to protect Jaime.' 

An emergency hearing was requested by Newman on Friday where he asked the judge to grant him custody of their sons; James, six and Leo, four.

The 41-year-old actress filed for divorce on Monday and requested a temporary restraining order against Newman, 44, after 12 years of marriage.

In court documents obtained by TMZ Newman claims King 'spent the last decade high' and will not get help for her opioid addictions.

The documents detail the events of January 12 when he claims he and 14 of Jaime's friends staged an intervention, asking her to get help for her issues. 

Newman claims he gave her an ultimatum, get treatment 'or the kids and I need to leave for their own safety.'

According to Newman, the actress entered a facility in Utah but didn't stay long because she tried to check-in while carrying some Adderall and Clonazepam pills.

Furthermore, Newman says King has only seen the boys for three days over the last two months. He has been quarantining in Pennsylvania with their sons while King has stayed back in Los Angeles. 

He says he was blindsided by the divorce filing and says that earlier this month they were talking through plans to divorce when he says King started accusing him of 'stealing' their kids, despite her 'insisting' he take the kids to Pennsylvania.

Newman claims that King became angry and 'threatened to ruin him'.

On Friday, Newman asked the judge for sole physical custody, shared legal custody and according to TMZ also requested his estranged wife move out of their LA home so he can live their with the children.

The judge rejected Newman's emergency request for custody and reportedly instructed the duo to work it out at a later court date. 

The Barely Lethal director has also reportedly submitted declarations from two nannies and one of Jaime's former assistants that corroborate Newman's claims, they say the actress has an opioid addiction and has put their children in danger by - 'among other things' - driving with them while under the influence.

King battled a heroin addiction when she was a teenager and previously admitted she got into drugs when she started modeling at 14.

She was shocked into getting treatment in 1997 after her Italian photographer boyfriend Davide Sorrenti - famous for glamorizing heroin chic in the 1990s - died of a kidney ailment reportedly caused by excessive heroin use.

This comes after it was revealed the actress is hoping they can reach a 'private resolution' as they deal with their messy divorce.

The actress, 41, filed a divorce petition on Monday, also requesting a temporary domestic violence restraining order and making an emergency motion related to child custody and visitation at the same time.

However, the judge ruled that the boys can stay with Newman for now. 

King reportedly wants to avoid any more legal proceedings to make sure personal lives stay out of the spotlight, according to an insider who spoke to People.
