CT Tamburello‘s wife Lilli Solares has filed a response to the divorce filing that CT submitted last month and, while she has not contested The Challenge star’s request for a divorce, she is demanding her pay her handsomely– with both money and property!
In court paperwork obtained by The Ashley, Lilli— who officially married CT in May 2018 (and again on an MTV wedding special in September 2018)—claimed that she and CT are still living in their Florida home together with their son CJ, but that there is a “tense and hostile environment in the home” due to the divorce proceedings.
“The Wife and Husband have little to no communication…The Wife wishes to keep the minor child apart from the litigation and protected from any stress that may be caused from the hostile situation between the parties,” the paperwork reads.
On Friday, Lilli’s lawyers filed an emergency motion for Lilli to be awarded “exclusive possession” of the home she shares with CT. She wants the judge to make CT leave the home.
This motion comes shortly after Lilli filed her response to CT’s divorce filing. As The Ashley previously reported, CT requested that parental responsibility for their son CJ continued to be shared, and that both he and Lili receive equal time with their son. CT also requested that the court come up with a parenting plan, if he and Lili are unable to work out the custody schedule themselves.

In Lilli’s response, however, she disputed several of his requests, including that they share parental responsibility and equal time with CJ. In her response, Lilli asked that CJ reside primarily with her; however, she agreed that a parental time-sharing plan should be created so that CT could see his son.
She also requested that she be able to “have the ultimate say over most and/or all decisions over the minor child.” (CT had requested that they share parental responsibility equally.)
In addition, Lilli asked the judge to give her the “exclusive use” of their shared Florida home, as well as their 2022 Mercedes truck.
From there, Lilli’s demands continue. She requests that she continue to be the beneficiary on CT’s life insurance policy— despite their divorce— so that CT could continue to pay the support to Lilli even if he dies.
She also wants spousal support…in the form of five different types of alimony.
“[CT] is well able to earn money and to continue to the support of [Lilli],” Lilli’s response reads. “[Lilli] is without sufficient funds to support herself without assistance.”
She goes on to say that, in addition to (or in lieu of) regular alimony, she also needs “Rehabilitative Alimony,” which would pay for her to get education, training, etc. to improve her ability to get a job and an income “more like that enjoyed by [CT], as a result of [Lilli’s] past contribution to [CT’s] career and education.”
She also wants “Bridge the Gap Alimony” to help her “transition from married life to single life.” Lilli also requested “Durational Alimony”, which will go for the amount of time they were married, which is about four years. (This type of alimony would end if either of them dies or if Lilli remarries.)

She wants “Temporary Alimony”, which would provide her with an income during the divorce proceedings, as well as “Lump Sum” alimony, where she would just get a set amount of cash from CT.
Lilli also requested that she be given her share of a company CT has interest in. She stated that she “has been of great assistance to [CT], not only in the marital business but also in terms of providing a home environment which supported [CT’s] needs in every respect.”
She also requests that she get a share of CT’s retirement benefits and pension, and that he continue to pay for her medical insurance.
She also asked the court to make CT help pay for her attorney’s fees for the divorce proceedings.
The case is still open as of press time.
As ‘The Challenge’ fans know, CT and Lilli had an on-and-off marriage for years.
During the “Double Agents” season of ‘The Challenge’ in 2020, CT revealed that he and Lili had separated.
“Marriage was not going well,” CT said during a confessional that season. “We’re separated, and I feel like I’ve been running from problems for a long time. I feel like they finally caught up with me. I couldn’t lie to myself anymore.”
CT and Lili ended up reconciling; however, their marriage was always off-and-on. They did appear together in June at the MTV Movie & TV Awards, and, based off CT calling Lili his “babes” in an Instagram caption, they appeared to be together at that time. (CT has since wiped his Instagram clean of most of the photos of Lilli.)
