Jodie Sweetin's ex-husband is taking legal action against the actress over her portrayal of him in her recent autobiography. The former child star released her tell-all book, "UnSweetined", earlier this month, lifting the lid on her battle with drugs and alcohol and her marriage to Cody Herpin, who she divorced earlier this year.

But Herpin is not happy about the way he has been depicted in the book, and has filed suit against his ex-wife for allegedly portraying him in a "false light". In the suit, filed at Los Angeles County Superior Court, Herpin claims his former partner has depicted him as "lazy, unwilling to provide and support his family, uncaring, vindictive, unsupportive and disinterested" in Sweetin's pregnancy when she was expecting their daughter, Zoie.

Herpin is also suing the book's publisher Simon & Schuster, according to

She signed the book deal right before she left her ex & said she was still doing drugs & drinking behind his back. It only makes sense that her life, as she saw it & wrote about happened while she was under the influence!! Jodie & Simon & Shuster should be held accountable!!
