Black Flag mastermind Greg Ginn is being accused of jeopardizing the health and welfare of his two daughters by his ex-wife, Marina Ginn. According to a new report from Consequence of Sound, Marina Ginn filed an affidavit in a Texas Distric Court on October 10th asking for an Emergency Motion to Modify the Parent-Child Relationship.
In an affidavit filed in Williamson County Texas District Court on October 10th, Marina asked for an Emergency Motion to Modify the Parent-Child Relationship over concerns that the health and welfare of her two daughters, Isadora and Karis, "is currently being jeopardized." Marina, who resides in Austin, Texas, says her daughters, age 10 and 7, "live in constant fear" of their father. While under his care, she claims Greg "routinely denies [them] food" so that they do not gain weight, has threatened them with physical abuse and, at times, thrown cups of water in their faces. Marina also alleges that he emotionally harasses his daughters by whistling and telling them, "You're hot." According to Marina, her youngest daughter, Karis, was taken to the hospital on October 7th over stress and anxiety stemming from these events.You can read the full affidavit here. While Marina has confirmed the legitmacy of the affidavit to Consequence of Sound, Greg Ginn has not yet responded to the publications requests for comment.
