Kris says the 28-year-old has been arrested at least 12 times, and two of the offenses include drunk driving, possession of marijuana, and assault on a police officer. She also claims that Justin has been emotionally and verbally abusive toward his girlfriend, Hanna, and possibly physically abusive.

“I fear that Justin could take his own life, my grandchildren’s life, and he could even take Hanna’s life,” Kris says. “I think the safest place for Justin is jail.”
