Paul Walker tragically passed away last November after a car crash, leaving behind a teenage daughter, Meadow. It was recently revealed that Paul’s mother Cheryl was seeking full custody of her, and now it seems clear why: apparently Paul asked Cheryl to look after Meadow full-time just hours before he died.
Sources close to the Walker family tell us … Paul approached his mother, Cheryl, on November 30th and asked her to retire from her nursing job to take care of Meadow full-time.
Turns out Walker had been overwhelmed with his work schedule and couldn’t juggle that with his parental responsibilities. So in August — 3 months before he died — Meadow moved in with Cheryl, who was working full time.
Paul hired a series of nannies to care for Meadow when Cheryl was on the job, but none of them worked out.
So finally … on the morning of his death, Paul called Cheryl and said he had given up on the nanny search and wanted her to be a full-time, stay-at-home grandma. Cheryl agreed, and Paul then called other family members to inform them of his decision.
Huh. Apparently Meadow’s mother has a serious drinking problem, so her caring for Meadow is out of the question. I’m sure there’ll be no objections to this arrangement, but here’s hoping it goes smoothly, because I think everyone in that family has been through quite enough trauma.
