*A Late Chat Production

Your wife passed away when your son Albert was a toddler. Two years ago you met a wonderful lady and you two have been married for a little over six months. Albert is now thirteen. You involved Albert in the dating process and he and his new step-mother seemed to get along well. The two of you even consulted Albert before marrying. You were happy to have a maternal influence in Albert's life. Albert is still subject to spanking and you find it works well for him.
Your new bride goes out of her way to be kind and understanding towards Albert. She tries her best to be a mother to him and treats him with love and respect. Shortly after the wedding things seemed to sour between Albert and your wife. Her response is to just try harder to reach out to him and care for him.
Albert has verbally expressed that he hates his step-mother and wants the two of you to divorce. You ask for specific reasons but all Albert has to say is, "I dunno, I just hate her."
Albert starts acting out around his step-mother and starts playing pranks on her in hopes that he will run her off. She is hurt and concerned but feels things will get better with time and encourages you not to punish Albert for it.
Albert then accesses an adult porn site and puts up a picture of a very seductive woman and puts your wife's name and cell phone number with the photo. The calls start coming in. At first you all assume it is some kind of error but Albert bursts out laughing after he watches your wife field yet another call as a result of the advertisement on the site. He admits to "playing a funny trick" and shows you the site. Your wife contacts the site administration and has the information removed but the damage is done.
Has Albert gone too far? How do you proceed?
