Jay Mohr and Nikki Cox’s Divorce is Messy and He Claims She’s a Drug Addict

The last time we talked about Jay Mohr, a TV and character actor whom I most remember from Jerry MaGuire, he was fat shaming Alyssa Milano right after she’d had a baby. That was way back in 2014 so we don’t get the occasion to talk about him much. Anyway he’s still married to another TV and character actor, Nikki Cox, they’ve been married for about ten years and things went sour some time ago. Jay first filed for divorce in July of last year and they reconciled for a while, but he filed again in December. Nikki and Jay have a five year-old son named Meredith. That was the thing I focused on the most when I read this story about his divorce filing, that they have a son and they named him Meredith. (Apparently it’s a Welsh name and it’s normal to name boys Meredith in Wales, but I bet I am not the only person confused about that.) Anyway Jay has filed for sole physical custody of Meredith, with monitored visits for Nikki. He claims in his court filing that Nikki is a drug addict who only recently took an interest in their son. Jay’s explanation of Nikki’s daily habits make her sound like a very unfit mom.
In the documents filed March 10, Mohr, 46, is requesting sole physical custody of their five-year-old son, Meredith Daniel Cox Mohr, and joint legal custody, with Cox receiving “reasonable visitation with Meredith, which shall be professionally monitored.”
Since filing divorce docs in December, Mohr claims that he and Cox “have continued to reside in the same residence” with their son, but alleges that their “living situation has become extremely confusing and untenable; and, our son is suffering.”
“Based upon the the increasing hostility in our home, Nikki’s ongoing refusal to attend her mental health issues … her abuse of drugs, and her failure to respect boundaries, I had no choice but to obtain alternate housing for me and our son,” the documents read.
Mohr, who has been married to Cox for almost 10 years, claims that “Nikki’s mental health issues continue to go untreated. … she continues to demonstrate that she is incapable of caring for Meredith,” the docs read. He also alleges that she left ovens on while she and their son were at home asleep; backdoors were left open at night for their dogs to go in and out; and administered a double dose of their son’s medication, which caused him to vomit in the middle of the night.
The actor initially filed for divorce from Cox in July 2016, but called off the divorce just six days after filing the documents.
“I initially filed a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage on July 19, 2016 and sought ex parte custody orders based upon my concerns regarding Meredith’s safety and Nikki’s mental health. My concerns included, but were not limited to, the following facts: Nikki abused drugs, she rarely left her locked bedroom (there were times when Nikki would go 2 full days without seeing Meredith even though we were all in the same house); She was an insomniac who would stay awake for days at a time; she threatened to take her own life on at least two (2) occasions; and she is unable to drive (she never obtained her driver’s license),” the documents read.
According to Mohr, the court denied his ex parte requests and he and his wife “attempted to address the concerns set forth” in the July 19, 2016 declaration.
“Prior to this dissolution proceeding, Nikki was absent from Meredith’s life. To this day, she has never spent twenty-four hours alone with Meredith and has relegated most of Meredith’s care to me and Meredith’s nanny,” the docs read. “To her credit, since July 2016, Nicki has been less absent from Meredith’s life. However, as set forth in further detail below, Nikki’s sudden presence in Meredith’s life has caused confusion, resulting in Meredith exhibiting signs of regression, both at home and in school (he is starting to have bathroom accidents throughout the day) … His behavior is deteriorating both at school and with his therapists.”

It goes on to stay that Jay has seen Nikki staying up until 2:00 am with Meredith eating candy and watching cartoons. She also told him that she was pregnant again, which he says is impossible if he’s supposed to be the father because he is “azoospermic.” (I guess that means he’s had a vasectomy.) Plus he says that Nikki is suicidal and has told him twice during their marriage that she planned to commit suicide. He writes that he still loves Nikki but that “we can no longer be married to each other, and I cannot continue to raise our son in a toxic environment.” If all that is true, it just sounds so hard to be married to someone who is addicted and using like that. I hope that this will be a catalyst for Nikki to get help, again if it’s the case and this isn’t exaggerated for court purposes, and that their son is ok.
