Paul Walker's Mom

In Legal WAR With Meadow's Mom

3/27/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

03-19-14-paul-meadow-tmzPaul Walker's baby mama has taken 15-year-old Meadow from the family home ... and Paul's mom is going to wage legal war in court today ... TMZ has learned.

Meadow had been been living with Cheryl Walker since August -- 3 months before Paul died.  After Paul's death, Meadow's mom, Rebecca, flew from Hawaii to live with Cheryl and Meadow and planned to stay until things stabilized.

But TMZ has learned everything fell apart last week when Cheryl filed to become Meadow's legal guardian.  Rebecca was pissed, and took Meadow to live at a family friend's house a mile away from Cheryl. 

Rebecca has had a serious drinking problems over the last 6 years, with 2 DUIs under her belt.  We're told that's why Meadow reached out to her dad several years ago and asked to move to his home.

And, in Paul's will, he expressed the desire to make his mom Meadow's guardian in case he died.

So Cheryl will go to court today in an attempt to win temporary guardianship of Meadow, but family sources tell us Rebecca will fight her tooth and nail.  Our sources also say ... Cheryl is armed with evidence that Rebecca's drinking problem has not subsided and she's an unfit parent.

It should be interesting ... Rebecca has a legal advantage because she's the biological mother, but Cheryl is determined to protect her granddaughter.

Meadow's desires will play a huge role in the judge's decision. My money is on the grandmother prevailing. And Meadow telling the judge she doesn't want to be under her mother's care.

Ugh such a shame Paul would be disappointed. I find it interesting that the mother had no problems letting her daughter move away from her 3years ago. Paul was probably supporting her and now that he's gone she's gotta get that money somehow.

This girl has to go through a lot already, do you really need to tell the whole wide word that her mom has a drinking problem and now she has to go through a custody battle?

Save her the embarrassment, leave her alone and let them handle this privately. Just because things are filed on public record doesn't mean everyone on the planet has to know. She's just a kid, leave her life off of your gossip site.

Meadow is a teenager, so the judge will likely let her decide.

I hope the real mom wins custody of her daughter. Walkers family is disgusting. They just want to control the money. Sorry folks, your gravy train passed away, GET JOBS!! Let the poor girl be with her mom

Unfortunately the courts will not listen to where she would like to live or with whom she'd like to live with since she's a minor. Hopefully if she ends up living with her drunk of a mother, she can weather the storm for a few years until she's an adult. In my opinion, not that it matters, she should stay with her grandmother. She will have a safer happier life during her teen years.

Poor child. Hopefully a judge will take her own needs and desires for her life into account. I sure hope that money is in an independent trust for her, which would eliminate the money grab. Time will tell. What an awful thing in such a fragile time of a young girl's life.

"The Family Home" according to TMZ. You need to leave these people alone. It's obvious Paul's Mom has had you on speed dial since his passing.
