Aspiring Politician Antonio Sabato Jr. Divorcing Amid Drug Abuse Claims
Actor Antonio Sabato Jr.’s run for congress will undoubtedly be a tremulous one now that his estranged wife, Cheryl Nunes, is asserting in their divorce battle that the actor has a drug abuse problem.
It can be recalled that Sabato, known for his roles in “Melrose Place” and “General Hospital”, filed for divorce on December 20, after almost five years of marriage to Nunes, citing irreconcilable differences.
In a report by TMZ, Nunes’ divorce documents were said to contain allegations that the actor admitted using crystal meth before they become a couple in 2009. Nunes also claimed that Sabato struggled with prescription drugs, particularly benzodiazepines. This drug classification includes muscle relaxers, anti-anxiety medications, and medications to address sleep disorder.
Antonio admitted to TMZ that he spent time in drug rehab to combat his problem with sleeping pills and that he is not trying to hide anything. The Italian-born actor also claimed that he is an outspoken advocate on addiction issues but he stressed that “whatever else she [Nunes] says is just a bunch of lies.”
Sabato and Nunes married in 2012 after the birth of their son, Antonio III. The actor is fighting for joint custody but Nunes is pushing for sole physical and joint legal custody. She is also apparently concerned for the safety of their son because of Sabato’s alleged drug addiction.
Earlier this week, Sabato filed with the Federal Election Commission to run for Congress in California in 2018. In an ironic twist, the actor’s reported platform centers on drug addiction problems and opioid crisis.
In a report published by Variety before the controversy, Sabato is said to have a good chance of winning the seat because he has President Donald Trump’s support, according to California GOP strategist and former Trump Delegate Charles Moran.
