Paul Nassif dropped the lawsuit against his ex-wife Adrienne Maloof Wednesday regarding their son's education and also called off his request for the former reality star to pay his attorney fees, TMZ reported.
Sources said the exes were battling in family court over where their 11-year-old son Gavin should attend school. Maloof, who previously starred on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, wanted the boy to continue in his regular school where he would get special attention for his learning and attention issues. Nassif, on the other hand, wanted to send Gavin to a school that specialized in kids with serious disabilities.
The website noted that Nassif dropped the lawsuit this week for reasons not known to the public and Gavin will continue to attend the school he is in now, which is the one Maloof wanted for him. Nassif also dropped his request for Maloof to pay for his attorney.

Sources added that Nassif on Wednesday also dropped his a civil distortion and blackmail claim against the former couple's chef Bernie Guzman, who posted on Facebook photos of Maloof's back bruised and claimed Nassif caused the injuries. Nassif sued the chef in June for making the claims, but dropped the case in court this week. He had originally asked for an unspecified amount in damages and an injunction preventing the chef from making further claims about him or his conduct, according to WetPaint.
Maloof and Nassif married in 2002 and finalized their divorce 10 years later in November 2012.
In the reunion special for season 3 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Andy Cohen said that Guzman captioned the Facebook photos of a bruised Maloof with a message talking about Nassif, saying, "now you know who and what he is. Adrienne Maloof was pushed to the ground, punched and beaten. He is a beast."
Taylor Amstrong said at the reunion, which Maloof did not attend, that Maloof admitted Nassif moved out several times during their marriage and that their arguments and fights were not just for television.
