Actress Sharon Stone is devastated after losing a battle for primary custody of her son Roan to ex-hubby Phil Bronstein -- but she's keeping her head high. "Extra" investigated the courtroom fight a little further -- and unearthed a surprising fact!
Contrary to reports, Sharon's custody of Roan wasn't taken away from her -- because she never had primary custody! Bronstein, the well-connected VP of the San Francisco Chronicle, has had physical custody of the tot since 2007.
The recent court ruling, which depicted Phil's home as a more structured environment for a child, left their joint-custody arrangement unchanged.
Sharon Stone has lost custody of her adopted 8-year-old son. "Extra" was first to uncover details of this top secret court battle.
"Extra" obtained a copy of the court order granting Stone's ex-hubby Phil Bronstein full custody of their son Roan. The document does not go into why Stone does not receive any custody but it does state living with Bronstein will "provide a more structured continuity, stable, secure and consistent home."
TV Judge Cristina Perez explained what goes into a custody ruling, saying, "What's convenient for the child is the court standard. Unfortunately, those are very hard decisions and they're emotionally hard on the parents."
Stone has two other children she adopted after her divorce from Bronstein in 2004.
Actress Sharon Stone has reportedly found a new boy toy -- half her age! According to In Touch Weekly, the 50-year-old Oscar nominee has been cozying up to 24-year-old Chase Dreyfus.
"Sharon called him and he showed the caller ID to everyone," a source tells the mag. "She's really into him and even asked him to come with her to Mexico."
The pair -- first spotted together at a Christian Audigier shindig earlier this month -- met while working together on Stone's charity, Planet Hope.
"Extra" has obtained papers showing that Sharon Stone wants to modify her current custody deal with ex Phil Bronstein, who has primary physical custody of their 8-year-old son, Roan.
Phil, 57, and Sharon, 50, married in 1998 and split in 2004. Sharon has two other sons; Laird, 3, whom she adopted in 2005, and Quinn, 2, adopted in 2006.
This Cannes Film Festival wasn't as much about movie openings - as it was about opening bids! Sharon Stone hosted the amfAR Annual Charity benefit for AIDS research. The auction raised $10 million - with the help of an auctioned private concert with Madonna that sold for $560 thousand!
The star-studded event brought Hollywood A-listers out of the movie premieres in the south of France. "We have P. Diddy...Sean Penn...Christian Slater," said Stone, "We have a lot of big, big stars here tonight."
"I would like to thank amFAR for all the amazing work they've done over the past few decades," Madonna announced. The devastation of AIDS in Africa became a subject close to the Material Girl's heart -- she premiered "I Am Because We Are," her documentary about AIDS orphans in Malawi, where she adopted son David.
