Two of Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme‘s children have filed for a domestic violence restraining order against their father, TMZ reports.

According to documents obtained by the site, Homme’s sons Orrin, 10, and Wolf, 5, submitted documents through their mother and Homme’s ex-wife, The DistillersBrody Dalle.

TMZ reports that the docs accuse Homme of verbal and physical abuse, including hitting and throwing things at his children, grabbing them inappropriately, and threatening to kill Dalle’s boyfriend. The kids also allege that Homme drove them while drinking alcohol. They describe Homme as “scary,” and are requesting that he must stay 100 yards away from them.

In a statement to TMZ, Homme’s lawyer says, “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.”

TMZ does not mention whether Homme and Dalle’s oldest child, daughter Camille, is involved.

Both Homme and Dalle previously filed restraining orders against each other following their divorce in 2019.
