Below are the five developments related to Moore and Daly’s divorce and custody proceedings.
Moore sought custody of Brooklyn before filing for divorce
According to Radar Online, months before the divorce in May, the 50-year-old offered in a separate custody case for sole custody of her 2-year-old daughter. In the first petition, she also requested that her estranged husband be visited. On June 11, Daly fired back on Moore’s custody case by seeking joint custody of Brooklyn. The entrepreneur also endorsed Moore’s motion to get sole custody of her daughter in the same lawsuit. In the same month, the judge finally granted the “RHOA” star sole custody.
Brooklyn can be filmed on “RHOA”
During the former couple’s month-long custody battle, Daly tried to stop Moore from seeing Brooklyn on “RHOA.” In June, the judge ruled in favor of the reality star, finding that Moore’s testimony proved she was “a protective and committed parent.” Court documents received by Radar Online further stated that her daughter’s non-attendance due to the former beauty queen’s occupation could affect “her ability to make money”.
The court’s final ruling says Moore will have the final say over Brooklyn on the show. However, the mother of one child is instructed to notify Daly every time the filming takes place. At the same time, the 2-year-old is only allowed to appear in “age-appropriate” scenes.
Daly claimed he was hiring security personnel over death threats against Brooklyn and himself
In newly released court documents, Daly alleged one reason he wanted to restrict Brooklyn’s appearance on “RHOA” was because of the alleged “threats” the two-year-old received on social media. The 51-year-old stated in court that because of his relationship with Moore, which is getting “a lot of media attention” from the reality show, he is concerned that additional exposure will then make the toddler stronger on social media platforms they are identified as being threatened. Daly even admitted hiring security guards to keep him and his business safe because he too received threats.

Daly also states that bad press from the reality show is causing his restaurant sales to plummet
In the same court documents, Daly explained how RHOA’s press had a negative impact on his business before the judge ruled in Moore’s favor to show Brooklyn on the show. The businessman is a restaurant owner. One of its restaurants is SoCo, a southern fusion restaurant based in Brooklyn, New York. During the custody case, he asked for details to be sealed so that he would not receive any further backlash, which was ultimately approved.
The former couple fights over property and child support
Although Moore filed for divorce in May, the case is still pending as the couple argue over assets, including child support and a previous home together in Georgia. Moore first bought this house before she married Daly. Despite the initial purchase, Daly also invested money in the house over the years through renovations, other “gifts, or joint purchases”.
Both parties are expected to return to court this year.
Moore and Daley married on June 10, 2017 and later separated in September 2019.
