Johnson Family to Raise Casey's Daughter

1/8/2010 9:24 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Casey JohnsonCasey Johnson's three-year-old daughter will be raised by Casey's mother and sisters, family sources tell TMZ.

Ava -- whom Casey adopted two years ago -- has been living with Casey's mom, Sale, for the past few months. We're told it's the family that wants Ava to remain with Sale -- along with her husband Ahmad Rashad* -- for good.

Sources close to the family tell us Casey's sisters will also help out.

It is unclear when (or if) the Johnson family will file adoption papers.

(*Yes, the Ahmad Rashad)

#8: How do you that Casey is in a 'better' place? One might not think so based on her choice of lifestyle.

Casey has two sisters that seem to be decent civalized citizens, STOP JUDGING AND BLAMING HER PARENTS...are you people GOD???
From what I keep hearing, the family made several attempts to keep her clean and sober and had finally decided to practice tough love. That's not an easy decision to make, I've been there with a loved one with drug problems...it's hard because you're constantly struggling with the feelings of being an enabler versus tough love (which feels like turning your back on someone). For those of you never faced with those decisions, please stop blaming the parents...I'm sure her death is enough.

I also noticed in the boxes Tia was carrying out of her house with Nikki Hilton, there was a large box of insulin syringes and what looked like other medical supplies. Where did this whole "the family didn't pay for her med" thing come from?

I read on another blog site that Sale Johnson is Casey's step mother... not her biological mother. Is this true? Does anyone know?

I had no idea, but after nearly sixteen years of marriage, Ahmad and Phylicia divorced in 2001. I remember as a child, loving the Cosby show and hating her. She was always pissed off.

Ahmad Rashad has been married 4 times, so if he can change wives so frequently, why doesn't he divorce Islam?

I always hated his b.s. kiss a-- interviews with Michael Jordan. This guy paved the way for sycophants like Stuart Scott.

Um, does the estranged family have any say? This was a 30-year-old adult who had named one of her friends (Nicole Richie, of all people) the godmother. Why does everyone assume that a family that did so disastrously by Casey would be doing something right and okay in saying it's their wishes that her adopted daughter stay with them?
