Seeking Sister Wife's Dimitri Snowden begs judge to grant him a divorce from Christeline after she accuses him of abuse
SEEKING Sister Wife star Dimitri Snowden has begged a judge to grant him a divorce from his estranged wife Christeline Petersen after she accused him of abuse.
Christeline married Dimitri, 41, in July 2020, as she joined his spiritual wife Ashley, 36, and their three children.
Christeline filed a restraining order against Dimitri and Ashley in March 2021, as he then requested a divorce from her in May of that year.
The Sun can exclusively reveal Dimitri begged a Los Angeles judge to grant the divorce in February 2022, as Christeline, who is from South Africa, had not responded to the petition.
According to Los Angeles court papers obtained by The Sun, Dimitri claimed there are no assets or debts to be determined by the court.
Dimitri also requested neither party receive spousal support.

Then in March 2022, Christeline responded to the petition, as she requested a divorce and cited “irreconcilable differences.”
She requested the court terminate both parties’ rights to spousal support.
The single mother asked the court to determine property division, tax consequences, attorneys’ fees and more.
The case remains ongoing.

The divorce came after Christeline filed a motion seeking a restraining order against Dimitri, citing abuse.
Christeline claimed the most recent incident of abuse occurred on January 13, 2021 with only she and her husband present.
She claimed in the filing: “I was woken up by him slamming my head into the headboard of the bed and he was yelling at me. My head was slammed into the headboard several times.”
She claimed she suffered “pain” and filed a police report on January 22, 2021.
Christeline went on to allege the abuse happened “numerous times in the last year.”
She claimed in court documents: “He choked me during sex, even though I repeatedly told him not to. The more I struggled, the more he enjoyed it. I stopped saying no after a few times, because any struggle by me would prolong the sex and choking.
“One time I got very dizzy and felt like I was going to pass out.”
She claimed she suffered from “bruises and redness” around her neck and “scratches” from his nails.
She requested her two daughters, ages 10 and 5, be protected in the petition.
The restraining order request was temporarily granted, but it was dismissed because she did not meet her burden of proof.
Christeline also filed a restraining order against Ashley.
In the request filed on the same day, Christeline listed Ashley as the “girlfriend of husband.”
She claimed of a January 21, 2021 incident: “She shoved me and tried to prevent me from leaving the home my husband and I shared with her. She also threw a bottle at me.
“She was verbally abusive and called me names. My children are scared of her due to her yelling at them and the violence in the home between her and my husband, and me and her.”
She said she suffered “no injuries” from Ashley’s alleged abuse.
Christeline also asked to protect her two daughters from Ashley, as she said: “My kids are scared of her due to her constant yelling at them and her violence against me and her and my husband.”
Ashley eventually left Dimitri as well, as she announced on Instagram that she is single in July 2021.
On last season's Seeking Sister Wife, Dimitri also dated Georgia-based henna artist Tayler, though she left the family.
