Paul Walker's Mom

My Granddaughter's Mom's an Alcoholic

I Want Guardianship

Paul Walker
's mother just filed court documents asking for guardianship of Paul's 15-year-old daughter ... because the real mom has a serious drinking problem.

Cheryl Walker claims in her docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Meadow and her mom, Rebecca Soteros, are already living with her but Rebecca can't care for her daughter because of her alcoholism.

As we previously reported ... Rebecca has 2 DUIs -- one in 2003 and another last year.  We're told Meadow moved from Hawaii -- where Rebecca lived -- to live with Paul 3 years before he died because of her mom's problems with alcohol.

Cheryl says she's more than qualified -- she's raised 4 kids, she's a registered nurse and is a loving person.

Paul had said in his will he wanted his mom to be Meadow's guardian ... so this is clearly in line with what he wanted.

One other note ... the legal docs say Paul's estate is worth $16 MILLION ... a lot less than previously filed legal docs estimating his worth at around $25 mil.

I don't think we should honor these dead celebrities the way we are. Paul Walker is known for speeding and endangering the lives of others, that's not someone I'd look up to.

If that's what Paul wanted, his request should be honored, considering Meadow's mother's alleged poor choices.

Paul obviously aware of all of this when he wrote his will. He continues to show himself to be a smart man and loving father concerned about his daughter's welfare.

Sure she raised four kids, but one of them was Paul Walker.

That's why he probably said that in his will because she might actually be a sloppy drunk.

1. Blue Ugly: your comment is ugly. Go crawl back up inside the uterus from which you were spawned. This is perhaps the ONE time that money is not the issue.
2. Kobe No: Paul was NOT known for speeding and in case you don't know (you imbecile) - he wasn't the one behind the wheel when he died.
3. ScatBlaster - your moniker says a mouthful, which is where you have OBVIOUSLY directed your scatblaster. Get a life.
6. Nick - see #2, above, you azzwipe.

How about grams working with mom to get her help, so she can raise her own daughter.

Isn't the way to go with this, momz.

i.e. Vilifying the girl's NATURAL mother - for cash money dough on-the-spot bill-pay.

Predictable, I'll give you that much.

But also disgusting and reprehensible.

No one needs to be trashed behind this.

I was trashed behind a-cash-grab I'm the expert.

It's as predictable as the Yankees going after free agents.

Pretending, feigning righteous_concern over others.

It was "ewww" then and it's "ewww-w" now.

The natural Mom needs to come here and go to War.

DO NOT take this lying down.

If she was good-enough for Paul BEFORE he hit?

She's good enough for Paul NOW.
