He's not going to take it!
Jason Patric and his ex girlfriend Danielle Schreiber are in the middle of a bitter battle for custody of their child, and the mud slinging has only just begun!
The battle has escalated so much that Jason says his ex and their family are filing a motion that, if passed, would prevent him from even speaking about his 4-year-old son Gus!
Whoa that's crazy! And sounds wrong!
In a somewhat bizarre YouTube video uploaded by the actor, he says:
"My ex and her family, the Schreibers, are now trying to restrain my voice and have filed a motion to limit – actually, erase – my First Amendment Constitutional rights to ever speak about my son, Gus, [and] to basically never have his name come off my lips. So, not only have they taken away my son, tried to erase my memory from him – now, they want to take away my rights as an American. And I'm not going to let that happen."
However his ex's attorney has said that Jason Patric's word just aren't ringing true at all! He tried to clarify the situation by explaining:
"[Jason Patric's words are] simply not true [and] nonsense. We're seeking to stop Mr. Patric from using Danielle Schreiber's son as a billboard for fundraising – to stop him from exposing her son's name and photos of him to national media, even if the kid's picture is blurred. It's an invasion of the child's privacy. We want him to leave the child out of this. He has no right to make this child subject to public scrutiny."
Jason Patric was denied any visitation rights to see his son by a judge in 2013. Mr. Patric had donated his sperm, and the child was conceived in vitro fertilization. His ex claims that they had an agreement that "his donation would never be made public and that he would not be a father to the child".
However Jason Patric feels differently and has started a foundation called Stand Up for Gus to fight for his rights as a parent, and ALL rights of ALL parents!
