Marcel’s decision to speak out appears to be linked to an episode of This Is Life With Lisa Ling on CNN where Ling focuses on men who have lost custody battles after a divorce.
Marcel began in the same post: “As usual I can’t wait to see @lisalingstagram’s show on custody issues.” 12 years ago I got legal papers and then spent 8+ years defending myself and my son in custody in response to his father and stepmother trying to get full custody (meaning I was going to meet my son four days a month) and then asking me to pay them child support.
“They lost that case and a civil case asking me for 200,000,” she explained. I also never asked for child support of any kind and never tried to take time away from Dad Cass. Ever. In the end they lost all these cases. The judge called them all “petty little ones.”
Marcel went on to say that custody issues hurt children and that divorced couples or couples who have children together and later separate should “put the children first”.
