Inside the shocking aftermath of the Sherri Papini kidnapping hoax

E! News confirmed on April 22 that Keith had filed for divorce after 12 years of marriage and was seeking temporary custody of Tyler, 9, and Violet, 7.

Contacted by E!, Sherri’s attorney did not comment.

“Now that I have learned the truth as reflected in the plea arrangement,” Sherri said, Keith said in a statement filed in Shasta County Superior Court and obtained by the Sacramento Bee“I must act decisively to protect my children from the trauma caused by their mother and bring stability and calm to their lives.”

He alleged that Sherri had not seen the children since April 4 and had missed a scheduled visit, and he asked that future visits be “determined by what I believe is in their best interests”.

Describing how difficult Sherri’s demise was in itself, made worse by the “turmoil” of the past five and a half years, he added: “We, the children and I, need time to recover and stabilize.

Keith concluded: “I want to make it clear that my goal is to provide a loving, safe and stable environment for Tyler and Violet and I believe the orders requested are in line with that goal and in the best interests of the children.” He wouldn’t say anything about Sherri’s case that would “inflame the situation or attract media attention.”

Ultimately, he said, “I ask the court to help me protect my children from the negative impact of their mother’s notoriety.”
