Joumana and Jason Kidd have been married 10 years

A complaint involving New Jersey Nets (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/basketball/nba/teams/nets) star Jason Kidd (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/basketball/nba/players/2625) and his wife has been filed in family court, authorities in their hometown confirmed Tuesday.

The police department served papers in connection with the complaint, Lt. Tim Haruthunian said. He declined to say who was served or to give details of the complaint, saying that family court matters are not public.

Haruthunian did say the department has not had other involvement with Jason Kidd, 33, or his wife of 10 years, Joumana Kidd, 34. "We have had no interaction with them at all," he said.

The Record of Bergen County reported in Tuesday's newspapers that Jason Kidd accused his wife of mistreating their three children and filed a domestic violence complaint Monday in state Superior Court in Hackensack.

Efforts on Monday to reach Kidd's agent, Jeff Schwartz, were not successful.

Attorney for Kidd's wife calls abuse claim 'absurd'

ason and Joumana Kidd appeared in the 2000 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.

A day after Jason Kidd (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/basketball/nba/players/2625) claimed in divorce papers to be a victim of spousal abuse, his wife's attorney said the New Jersey Nets (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/basketball/nba/teams/nets) point guard had no reason to fear the diminutive woman.

"He says he's threatened by her? He's a star athlete. She's 5-foot-2, I think, and 105 pounds," said celebrity New York divorce lawyer Raoul Felder, one of the attorneys representing Joumana Kidd.

"It's shameful what he did here. The truth will come out," said Felder on Wednesday, adding his client planned to file a counter compliant within a week.

The 33-year-old Kidd filed for divorce from his wife of 10 years Tuesday, a day after a court issued him a temporary restraining order against her.

In court papers, Kidd said his wife physically and mentally abused him, threatened to make false domestic violence complaints against him to police and interfered with his relationship with his children.

The papers accuse Joumana Kidd of kicking, hitting, punching and throwing household objects at her 6-foot-4, 210-pound husband as she became "increasingly controlling and manipulative" in the last few years of their marriage.

Monday night, Felder said police showed up at the couple's Saddle River estate and, instead of serving Joumana Kidd with the restraining order, forced her to leave.

"The police put her out of her own home, originally giving her 30 minutes to get out with the three children," Felder said. "It turns out the police misinterpreted the court's order."
