In court documents obtained by Radar the comedy legend, 88, and her husband Brian Miller are seeking permanent guardianship of their grandson Dylan — as his mother Erin Hamilton battles a drug addiction.

In a petition that Burnett filed with the court in August of 2020 to become the boy's legal guardian — she and her spouse stated that their daughter “suffered from severe substance abuse and addiction issues" and was not able to properly care for Dylan.

“In the past 19 years, Erin has been in and out of rehabilitation centers and has been institutionalized a total of eight times for a minimum of 30 days each time,” the Annie actress explained in the legal papers.

Burnett detailed that her daughter had been put on a 51/50 hold for “suicidality and drug use.” She also explained that the boy's father battled substance abuse issues as well, and could not sufficiently take care of Dylan himself.

Now the entertainer is asking the court — who will make the final decision during a hearing later this month — to sign off on acquiring the help of Jodi Pais Montgomery to act as a private professional fiduciary in Dylan's guardianship.
