Tiffany Thornton, best known for starring opposite Demi Lovato on Sonny With a Chance and its spin-off So Random!, has been accused of kidnapping her two young children.
The shocking accusation comes from her husband, musician Chris Carney, who went to the LAPD and filed a child stealing report, claiming the 28-year-old actress conspired with his own mother to steal their sons, Bentley, 3 months, and Kenneth, 20 months.
He claims Tiffany is suffering from postpartum depression, according to TMZ.
While Tiffany’s lawyer initially gave a brief statement, stating the issue was being handled in the “proper forum,” his mother, Ruth has since spoken to the celebrity gossip website to set the record straight.
Mrs. Carney, who is the mayor of Hot Springs, Ark., says Tiffany ran away to protect their two young sons from Chris’ alcoholism, as he recently relapsed and “went crazy.”
She also says her son was well aware of the plan (which involved taking Tiffany and the kids to her parents’ home in Texas), because the former Disney Channel star FaceTimed with him daily throughout the ordeal.
Chris, however, denies any accusations of alcoholism. He allegedly told TMZ the whole thing has been blown out of proportion, claiming to be a "social drinker" rather than an alcoholic.
