Legendary comedian Carol Burnett is asking the court to allow her to raise her grandson due to her daughter’s substance abuse issues.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Carol and her husband Brian Miller have filed a petition for the appointment of a temporary guardian.
Carol is asking the court to grant her guardianship of her 13-year-old grandson. The actress wants to be able to provide him with temporary care, maintenance and support. Dylan is the son of Carol’s daughter Erin Hamilton. The comedian says, “Throughout her adult life, and since Dylan’s birth, Erin has suffered from severe substance abuse and addiction issues. In the past 19 years, Erin has been in and out of rehabilitation centers and has been institutionalized a total of eight times for a minimum of 30 days each time.”
Carol says her daughter recently threatened to take her own life. Back in July, her family called LAPD to complete a wellness check on her.
