Rebecca Soteros Will Go to Rehab to Regain Custody of Her Daughter
An agreement over the guardianship of Paul Walker’s teenage daughter, Meadow Rain, has been reached pending Rebecca Soteros going to rehab, PEOPLE confirms.
A source tells PEOPLE that the 15-year-old, who has been staying with the late actor’s mother, Cheryl Walker, will live with her mother, Soteros, if she successfully completes a rehab program.
Both parties have agreed that Soteros will regain custody of Meadow – an arrangement that both mother and daughter want, the source says – following treatment for her issues with alcohol, which include two DUIs.
According to TMZ, Meadow – who has been living with her grandmother since August – will stay with the Walker family while Soteros is in rehab.
Speculation of a custody battle began to brew after Walker’s mother filed papers seeking to become the legal guardian of her granddaughter and the $25 million estate she inherited, following his death in a car crash in November.
TMZ and E! were the first to report the agreement.
