Carol Burnett has been granted temporary guardianship of her grandson, Dylan.

According to court documents seen by People, the legendary comedian and her husband, Brian Miller, have been appointed temporary guardians of 14-year-old Dylan until January 8, 2021.

The documents reportedly stated: ‘The Court finds that sufficient evidence has been provided to grant the matter on calendar this date based upon the reading of the moving papers and consideration of all presented evidence.

‘The Petition – Appoint a Temporary Guardian (Subsequent) filed on 8/18/2020 by Petitioner(s) Carol Burnett, Brian Miller is granted. Carol Burnett & Brian Miller is/are appointed as Temporary Guardian(s) of the Person of Dylan Hamilton-West until 01/08/2021 and Temporary Letters shall be valid until that date,” read the documents.

‘Temporary guardians have the authority to change Dylan’s school and housing pending the next hearing date.’

The court’s approval came two weeks after the Carol Burnett Show star made the request amid her daughter Erin Hamilton’s substance abuse issues.

In a statement to Metro.co.uk, the 87-year-old explained: ‘Due to addiction issues and other circumstances that my daughter, Erin, has been struggling with impacting her immediate family dynamic, my husband and I have petitioned the court to be appointed legal guardian of my 14-year-old grandson.

She continued: ‘Guardianship will be for oversight purposes concerning his health, education and welfare and not intended to deny him nor the parents proper visitation with one another.

‘We look forward to recovery being the next stepping stone towards normalization and ask for privacy at this time to allow that process to occur.’

The report claimed that the actress explained in the filing that she wants to provide Dylan with temporary care, maintenance and support, as well as the right to handle his affairs.

Meanwhile, Carol added that Dylan’s father, Kurt West, is reportedly unable to care for Dylan.

Documents stated he recently checked himself into a rehabilitation center.
