The judge felt the children at the time "lacked structure in their lives, due in substantial part to Mother's numerous business ventures and frequent trips out of town ... Mother has a history of spending money on herself excessively rather than providing for the children ... There was some evidence at trial that Mother implicitly participated in robbing Father in the presence of the children. She also took money from Father prior to the initiation of this matter. This behavior causes the Court to question Mother's maturity and judgment."
Although Sweat, too, travels frequently, the decree said Sweat?s mom helped care for the children. "Father is capable of providing a stable, secure home environment for the boys where their care is not delegated to random third parties," the judge wrote.
Wu Hartwell has had visitation rights and has said in past interviews she sees her sons frequently. Neither boy was shown on camera or even talked about on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" because Sweat would not give her legal permission to do so. Sweat is never mentioned by name on the show.
Wu Hartwell is currently married to former NFL player Ed Hartwell. They have a child, who we saw on the TV show, which began taping its second season Monday.
Carlos Scott, her publicist, said Wu Hartwell cannot speak on the subject while it's in the court system. Wu Hartwell said nothing about the custody case on Saturday at her South Dekalb Mall appearance, though she did note that her ex-husband didn't clear her sons to be on the show.
We are currently seeking comment from Sweat, who happens to be promoting his new Peachtree TV special airing this week reuniting the group Dru Hill. Sweat made no mention of the custody case Monday morning in an interview with Frank & Wanda on V-103.
