Tad Cummins, 50, appeared in federal court in Tennessee for the first time since his arrest last month in California. Anthony Thomas was granted a restraining order at the same time he filed divorce papers, preventing Kimberly from being in contact with him or any of the couple's minor siblings.

Kimberly Thomas, 48, is now facing allegations that she beat her children, locked them in a basement and threw them down stairs. According to DailyMail.com, the teen is claiming she believes she is a "fully grown woman" and should have the right to "love who she wants".

She would instead prefer to live with Paige Griffith, the mother of one of her closest friends and someone she regards as a "second mum". She is purportedly angry at her father for coming between her and the fired teacher.

Cummins, 50, remains in federal custody after being charged with transporting a minor across state lines for the objective of criminal sexual intercourse.
