TV comedy legend Carol Burnett wants to become the legal guardian of her teenage grandson as his mother struggles with substance abuse.
The 87-year-old and her husband, Brian Miller, have filed documents to take custody of her 52-year-old daughter Erin Hamilton’s son Dylan.
”Due to addiction issues and other circumstance that my daughter, Erin, has been struggling with impacting her immediate family dynamic, my husband and I have petitioned the court to be appointed legal guardian” of her 14-year-old grandson.
Burnett adds guardianship would be for oversight purposes concerning his health, education and welfare and not intended to deny him nor the parents proper visitation with one another.
”We look forward to recovery being the next stepping stone towards normalization.”
Hamilton is the youngest of Burnett’s three children; all of them daughters with Burnett’s second husband, TV producer Joe Hamilton.
Another of Burnett’s daughters; actor and writer Carrie Hamilton, spoke publicly about her own addiction struggles and subsequent sobriety.
