Rosie O'Donnell and estranged wife Michelle Rounds are fighting for custody of their adopted daughter Dakota.

O'Donnell, 52, and Rounds, 42, married in New York in June of 2012 after a brief courtship. They split up in November and announced that the marriage was over in February.

During the marriage, the women adopted Dakota, 2. O'Donnell also has four older children from a previous relationship.

“My client Michelle Rounds has decided to start proceedings for sole custody of their daughter Dakota,” Rounds' attorney William D. London told Page Six, “since it is unequivocally in their child's best interest and general welfare.”

Cindi Berger, O'Donnell's spokeswoman, called the request “absurd” and a “desperate attempt to use a child for her own gain.”

In comments to Entertainment Tonight, Rounds said that she has her own money and would walk away from a monetary settlement if O'Donnell agreed to give her full custody.

“I just want my child to have the best possible environment to grow up in, a normal life,” Rounds said. “Right now, she's got 24/7 nannies over there at Rosie's house. I don't want my child to have a 24/7 nanny.”
