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.

Doing heroin while inside prison? I don't understand why prison officials would be upset.

He was busted with a huge amount of meth, not heroin, i think he had a small amount of heroin, but the major conviction is for meth......

Underground hole?... lmao. It's a just cell with no windows and a solid steel door with a slider for CO's to peek through. This ain't the 1700's. Understand that your son was a drug dealer/addict that dealt drugs that no only killed thousands of people but killed the user's as well and most times destroyed family bonds. So should we feel pity for him? I personally think not.

Can we just back up a minute? I don't think you just randomly get thrown into "solitary" and never see the light of day just because of drugs. You don't get that kind of treatment unless there are serious problems with your behavior, like if you're one of those shlt throwers or violent biters or something. He's not sitting in some cave type dungeon just because he was a druggie. Not saying it's nice treatment but it doesn't just happen out of the blue. So what aren't we being told?

Earth to the parents....exactly WHERE do you think your son is at...a country club???

No, he's in prison.

And prisons have rules, which your son has repeatedly broken (i.e. failing drug tests and being caught with drugs while incarcerated)...just like he did when he was out on the streets....arranging and making drug deals.

You didn't take the time to raise him so the system has to.

Go somewhere and sit down and shut up.

He is exactly where he needs to be....and he shouldn't get any special privaleges because his last name is Douglas.

Hopefully this will teach him not to do the crime if he can't do the time.

Douglas' want their son to have privileged lifestyle in prison -- maybe they should buy the prison and free the jerk. He's not sick, he's a dealer and a looser. They are the problem, too.

I work at a prison and if inmate fails a drug test they are sent to the hole for disciplinary reasons and their visits are taken away until the investigaton of how they got the drugs is cleared. But for TMZ dont get the wrong idea when you call for information on an inmate CO's aren't allowed to give info, and fir tje rudeness i can relate sometime the family members of inmates can be irritating

I'm sure his skin is burning and his hair is falling out, NOT!!! Boo-hoo!! It's called JAIL, not the country club. And, I'm sure all the jailhouse drugs he's taking couldn't possibly be what's causing his problems.

Solitary confinement means in the cell 23 hours per day out of cell to go outside to an exercise cell for an hour or some other supervised activity.
