Radio host Kip Wightman breaks down live on air as he talks about the harsh reality of sharing custody of his young son with his ex: ‘I can’t stand it’
Kip Wightman broke down in tears as he discussed splitting custody of his four-year-old son Rafael with ex-wife Amber.
The Brisbane radio host revealed on KIIS’ Robin, Terri & Kip breakfast show that he was left heartbroken when his son asked him why he and Amber weren’t living together like his friend’s parents.
“The worst thing that happened on Sunday was when I picked him up and we were going to a family barbecue and he said, ‘Dad, I know someone called Charlie from kindergarten,'” he explained.
Raphael then said, “Dad, you know, Charlie has a mom and a dad. And they are in the same house. They live together.’
‘And sometimes they pick it up together… I want it’.
