Celebrity custody fights over their dogs, collected from the Huffington Report, TMZ and others:
In 2009, Jennifer Love Hewitt and her former fiancée Ross McCall announced they were having an “amicable” split. Then they got into a battle about who got custody of their dog, Mona, and things got a lot less amicable.
A “source” revealed to one New York sleazy newspaper that, when the dog was with Hewitt, she tried to change its name so later when McCall called it, the dog wouldn’t come.
The stars of Jon and Kate Plus 8, Jon and Kate Gosselin, had arguments about who would get their two German shepherds, Shoka and Nala, which they bought during a 2009 series episode.
Later, Jon returned the dogs to the breeder after complaining that Kate refused to care for the dogs in his absence. That was in addition to battles about who was or was not unfaithful and custody of the eight children. When the dust settled, Kate took one of the dogs back.
