Ana Estevez says that soon after she filed for divorce from her husband of eight years, Aramazd Andressian Sr., she knew they would be in a heated custody battle over their 5-year-old son, Aramazd “Piqui” Andressian Jr. She says her ex filed for an emergency hearing and claims he lied to the court, saying he was a stay-at-home dad so she was forced to pay child and spousal support. And, she claims her ex forced her son lie to police about being molested by a person he claimed was Ana’s boyfriend.
