LITA FORD's Son: "Our Mother Is A Child Abuser"

Posted by on July 27, 2015 at 4:45 pm Follow on Twitter | Follow on Instagram

In January, reports surfaced from the divorce filings of Lita Ford and her estranged husband. Jim Gillette, that her children feared that Ford would kill them. There were claims of constant abuse from Ford to the kinds.

In the time since the incident, Ford launched the Parental Alientation Awareness Facebook page, and a few years back, she recorded a song for her two children letting them know that she will always be there for them:

Earlier today, Ford posted a slew of messages on the Facebook page saying her children were being brainwashed by her ex-husband, and she threatened to file a nationwide amber alert:

All of this has led to the eldest of her two sons, James, issuing his own statement to Metal Sludge accusing his mother of abuse and saying he never wants to see her again:

My Dad always taught me, “if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say it”. Well unfortunately my mother has left me no choice with her latest crazy allegations against my father (including kidnapping) and recent attempts to start a nation-wide amber alert type search for my brother and me.

We have not been kidnapped. We live with our dad and have every right to. Thankfully we never have to see our mother again and we have the legal paperwork to prove it. By the way, I’m 18 and can live wherever I want, with whoever I want, and I choose to live with my dad. How ridiculous would it be for my mother to put out an amber alert on me even though I’m a legal adult.

Obviously our mother has a lot of problems. Five years ago a court appointed doctor told my brother and me that our mother was mentally ill. This came as no surprise to either of us.

Unfortunately my mother has never accepted any responsibility for her actions and continues to blame anyone and everyone all while publicly playing the victim.

Our mother is a child abuser. She was violent, threatening, and tried to make my brother and me hate our dad. Her attempts at parental alienation were constant and never ending. When we didn’t agree with her she would become livid and out of control. We told child services, the sheriffs department, and many court appointed professionals that our mother was crazy, violent, and we were afraid she would someday kill us in a fit of rage.

We were with our dad when he was served divorce papers. We made him promise to do everything he could so we never had to see our mother again. He kept his promise and for that we are forever grateful.

Our mother alleges that our father brainwashed us against her. Nothing could be further from the truth. Our dad never said a bad thing about her. He didn’t have to. We saw first hand what she did to all of us. If he has in any way let us down, it was that our father should have gotten us away from her sooner.

Our mother said horrible things about our dad all the time. She even said things about me and my brother. She called us “fucking faggots” because we used to sit with our dad and watch movies.

Our mother threatened to have us thrown in a Foster home and said we’d never see our dad again. Why? Because we told her we didn’t want to be with her and she was angry we told all the professionals that she beat us. She also threatened us and said she would have our dad thrown in jail for the same reasons.

I could tell you horror stories for days but that wouldn’t accomplish anything. My mother needs serious help. She needs to stop lying and she needs to leave us alone. She also needs to stop with her harassing and stalking behavior.

Anyone that says my father should be crucified and left to die will never be a part of my life. Who in their right mind writes a song for their children saying those terrible things?

James Gillette

This is truly a tragic tale that is playing out in the public sphere for no reason. We hope Lita is able to find help and the peace that she deserves.

    I was actually erased from my father's life and he committed suicide so I have a pretty good idea of all that.

    This is a heartbreaker. Tony Iommi was a horrible husband. She has made some very bad choices in men. Her current ex husband does appear to have basically turned her sons against her. I don't believe that she has all the problems that are said about her. The fact of the matter is, is that she seems to be a decent woman, a succesful teeanger. That combintation can be tough. Shes famous. That in itself can be stresssful, and demanding. The music industry is very competitive. That can crate alot of stress for her. I doubt any of the comments about her were created solely by her sons. How many kids know how to accuse their mom? I think her husband is one piece of work. That guy probably did turn her kids against her. This is sad. I hope she talks it over with friends of hers. And gets good advice. And gets a really good lawyer.

    The reason being. Sometimes the law can change alot of things. She can sue her husband for slander. And really work at child custody. Also wouldn't it be something if he has you thinking things about her that are total lies. It's possible.

    I'm not going to add much here just that I know 1st had about being in love, or so I thought I was, and being in a controlled abusive relationship. Long story short, cops were at our place all the time for domestic violence and every time we went to court I told the judge he did not hit me because I did not want to see him go to jail. The cops told me not to call them any more because it was a waste of time. Needless to say I finally got the courage to leave a controlled abusive relationship. I'm not taking sides but I am saying that we don't know what happened behind their closed doors and maybe Lita is telling the truth and maybe she's not. We won't know for sure.

    Nobody outside of the situation will ever know the truth.
