Washington (ANI): Sharon Stone has lost joint custody of her 8-year-old son, Roan, according to court documents. Now, the actress' ex-husband Phil Bronstein has 'permanent sole physical custody' of their adopted son. A Superior Court judge found that the boy, who is living with his father in the Bay Area and attending school there, will remain with Bronstein unless Stone, who lives in L.A., relocates to San Francisco or Bronstein decides to move.
"The court does not find that (a) move away is in child's best interest. Court finds that (Bronstein) can provide a more structured continuity, stable, secure, and consistent home that child, Roan, needs. (Bronstein) shall have permanent sole physical custody of child," People quoted the documents, as stating.
As per the documents, Stone 'shall have access to child,' and her phone number 'shall be programmed into the child's telephone and home phone.' However, Stone's attorney, Marty Singer, said that the actress still has joint physical custody of Roan, and that the court only denied her request to allow the eight-year-old to attend school in Southern California, where Stone lives with her two other children, instead of San Francisco.
"The court order of 2007 provided that Roan was to go to school in San Francisco. Sharon went to court to try and modify the existing order," Singer said.
"She wanted the court to modify the order so her child could go to school in Los Angeles. But the court felt that, for whatever reason, that she did not meet a burden to move him out of San Francisco during the school year. She thought it was best at this young age that she had these two younger children to have her older son be with them and the court didn''t want to modify the order. She loves her son and felt it would be better to have her child in Los Angeles," Singer added.
