A few days ago, Sharon Stone lost joint custody of her son Roan. She denied it of course and called it a misunderstanding. Well, if this “Tentative Statement of Decision” just released by the court is any indication, the only misunderstanding was on Sharon’s part.
“Mother appears to overreact to many medical issues involving Roan.” In one case, the judge describes Stone believing Roan had a spinal condition, but “there was no evidence to support this allegation.”
And then the court says, “Another example of an overreaction is that Mother suggested that Roan should have Botox injections in his feet to resolve a problem he had with foot odor. As Father appropriately noted, the simple and common sense approach of making sure Roan wore socks with his shoes and used foot deodorant corrected the odor problem without the need for any invasive procedure on this young child.”
The judge differentiated very distinctly the difference between Bronstein and Stone, saying, “Father has championed for Roan’s well-being out of, what appears to this Court, nothing less than the unconditional love for his son. Unfortunately, and for unexplained reasons, it appears that Mother did not involve herself to the extent she could or should have in this process … Mother has attempted to put up roadblocks to Roan’s getting help, or has decided against participating in his care.”
By the looks of it, joint custody won’t be restored for Sharon unless one of two things happen. One, after years of evaluation by a licensed therapist, she’s deemed sane or two, she dies. And number one won’t happen any time soon. You could throw Roan in a den of abused lions and he’d be better off than with Sharon. If Sharon was still in charge of Roan, he’d probably be in his sixth round of chemotherapy and his tenth foot botox injection by the end of the year. I guess one can never be too careful. I mean, sure, he’ll be hairless and puking every day, but on the upside, he’ll have the smoothest feet ever.
