Christina Ricci is not happy with her ex-husband, James Heerdegen, who allegedly pulled a fast one on her and blocked her from taking their 8-year-old son, Freddie, to New York City for a work trip.

According to court documents obtained by Page Six, the “Casper” actress claimed that Heerdegen initially agreed to let her take their son on the trip, but later changed his mind and refused to cooperate.

Ricci accused Heerdegen of being “vindictive” and “retaliatory” for his sudden flip-flop, and said he was making her “incur attorneys’ fees unnecessarily” and jeopardizing her “employment and professional reputation.”

The “Addams Family” star also provided screenshots of text messages that showed Heerdegen allegedly wrote that he “didn’t have a problem” with their son traveling with her for a “couple of days.” However, he allegedly then texted on June 19 that he and Ricci had a “number of pending matters” that they needed to address in a court date on June 21.

Ricci said she was concerned that if the hearing didn’t go Heerdegen’s way, he would “renege” on his agreement. She also said this was not the first time he had done this to her, as he had previously reneged on letting their son travel with her to Canada for work in January.

The Emmy nominee filed for an emergency hearing to get permission to take their son to NYC. She also asked the court to consider Heerdegen’s “retaliatory litigation conduct” when making custody orders.

Ricci filed for divorce from Heerdegen in the summer of 2020 after nearly seven years of marriage. She also obtained a restraining order against him, alleging that he was abusive and violent towards her.
