Christina Haack has clapped back at Ant Anstead, alleging that her ex-husband's motive in filing for full custody of their son Hudson was not for the child's best interest.

The "Flip or Flop" alum filed new legal documents Thursday blasting the "Wheeler Dealers" star for his "false allegations" about her quality as a mother to their 2-year-old son and accusing Anstead of trying to ruin her good reputation.

In the filing obtained by Page Six, Haack, who split from Anstead in September 2020 after nearly two years of marriage, objected to her ex-husband's request for sole custody and provided evidence she says supports her claims that her ex has lied.

"I will not speculate as to his true motivations, but Hudson’s best interest is not what is motivating his application to the Court," her statement began.

Haack claimed that her offer to settle the matter via private mediation and private judging was rejected by Anstead. She said she believes that the "Celebrity IOU: Joyride" host wants to "tarnish my good name with his false allegations," according to the filing.

Haack asserted in the documents that Anstead was trying to "create a false narrative and smear my good name" and was using their son to do so. She also claimed that her ex has started to "harass" those closest to her, including her nanny and publicist.

She went on to question Anstead's claim that he "never used" their son as a "promotional tool" by including a copy of his People magazine cover on which the toddler appeared.

As for custody, Haack said she has Hudson "at the same time" as her two other kids, 11-year-old daughter Taylor and 6-year-old son Brayden, whom she shares with ex-husband Tarek El Moussa.

"[Anstead] states he wants me to have a ‘step-up plan’ that would eventually match what I have with my other children," Haack said in her filing. "He omits the fact that per the terms of our judgment, I already have a matching schedule for all three children."

Haack and Anstead were both granted joint legal and physical custody of their son after their divorce was finalized in July 2021.

He filed for full custody of Hudson Thursday, alleging that Haack has been absent from their son's life.

Anstead claimed that Haack spent an average of "nine full days each month" with the toddler over the past 20 months and previously put Hudson's health at risk, including one incident when Anstead says the boy got a sunburn on her watch, TMZ reported, citing court documents.

He also urged a judge to make the "Christina on the Coast" star stop slamming him on social media, especially when Hudson appears in her paid posts.

After news of Anstead's filing broke, Haack acknowledged in a statement that she's not a perfect mother but insisted that she was a "good mom."

"I love my children with all my heart, and I will always protect them," Haack said in the statement obtained by Us Weekly.

Anstead requested an emergency ruling in his filing in Orange County, California. Hours after his filing, however, a judge denied his application due to an "insufficient" showing of pressing matters, E! News reported.

Haack and Anstead have a hearing set for June 28.
