Michael Douglas' Ex-Wife

'I Stand By Michael...

Let Me See My Son!'

Michael Douglas and his ex-wife -- who once battled bitterly -- are in lockstep over what they call the barbaric treatment of their imprisoned son ... TMZ has learned.

Diandra De Morrell Douglas tells TMZ ... their son Cameron has been treated like an animal while in solitary confinement at the Cumberland Federal Prison in Maryland.  He's serving 10 years for heroin possession and conspiracy to distribute narcotics.  Cameron failed a drug test in prison and was placed in solitary until recently.

As you know ... Michael talked about Cameron after winning an Emmy for "Behind the Candelabra," saying he wants to visit his son badly but isn't allowed.

Diandra tells us when Cameron got out of solitary he couldn't walk in the daylight, because his skin would burn because it couldn't adapt after living in an underground hole for so long.  His hair is also falling out.

Diandra says even though Cameron is out of solitary, part of his punishment is no visitors.

We called prison officials ... they were very abrupt with us, and said everything's confidential.

Maybe his solitary confinement has something to do with him trying to get his visitors to smuggle heroin in for him. Just maybe?

What did they think? There are celebrity prisons with china and butlers? It's prison, your son is a criminal, treated like other criminals. Get over yourself Hollywood, your sh!t stinks just like everyone else.

while I play "Cry Me a River" on the world's tiniest violin ... seriously he is in jail for DRUGS poor thing is burning in the sunlight and hair falling out is more likely a side effect of his drug use than him being "confined" and you are really full of yourselves TMZ you really called the prison? and figured they would be all to happy to violate an inmates confidentially rights

NO ONE should be put in prison for any NON-VIOLENT drug offenses!!! Stop this BULL$HIT DRUG WAR!!! Only VIOLENT offenders, including rapists and child molesters belong in prison. Hate all you want, I don't care.

These two are the reason he turned out so badly and ended up in prison! He's in solitary because he was USING in prison! Let him take his lumps like a man!

If the stupid jerk ever gets out he'll hopefully have learned his lesson and will stay out of trouble. The dumb punk had it all with rich parents who spoiled him rotten and he wasn't intelligent enough to handle it. He deserves everything he gets. What a pathetic loser....

Its called prison, not a picnic. No special treatment because he is the son of a 'star'. Maybe if he behaved he wouldn't be in solitary.

Yo, McLeigh -


Do you have some sort of difficulty with your reading comprehension?


I made it very clear that NON-VIOLENT offenders do not belong in prison.


VIOLENT offenders most certainly should be locked up.
