According to The Blast, Cimini filed documents over paternity and support in 2001; however last November a motion for contempt was filed by the court against him, alleging he owed $14,685.54 in back child support.
He was ordered to appear before a Michigan court on December 5 but failed to turn up; police were then issued a warrant for his arrest.
Curtis is also battling against Shane McGuire, the father of her two-year-old son Harper.
She recently defended her decision to keep breastfeeding her son after being accused of using nursing as a ploy to keep him away from his father.

She told the court said she needed more time with Harper because he relied on her body to be fed; In response, a judge told her to use a breast pump and send her milk with the child when he was visiting his father in Minnesota.
Curtis lives in Detroit, Michigan, where she also films her hit HGTV home renovation show.
In an interview with People, the TV star, who is a vocal advocate for breastfeeding and attachment parenting, said she physically could not produce enough milk by pumping and that her son refused to drink it unless it came straight from her nipple.

McGuire’s attorneys say Harper drank happily from a bottle of formula when he was six-months-old.
Despite criticism from people who say Harper is too old to be nursed, she wants to leave it up to him when he will stop.
‘It’s important that children have both of their parents. But [preventing] me from breastfeeding my child just so he can see the dad is not right,’ she said.
