Back in August 2020, the legendary comedian and her husband Brian Miller filed a petition to be appointed the temporary guardians of their grandson.

In court documents, the couple said their daughter Erin Hamilton has “suffered from severe substance abuse and addiction issues.” Carol said, “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.”

At the time of the petition, the comedian said her daughter had a recent episode where she threatened to take her own life. The family even had to call the police to do a wellness check. Carol asked the court to appoint her as guardian to allow her to make decisions for her grandson Dylan.

Carol said the father was unable to take care of his son. Dylan’s father recently checked himself into rehab and is unable to provide for his son. She said Dylan’s living environment has long been “unstable, unpredictable, and unhealthy for a child.”

The Department of Children and Family Services reportedly investigated Erin in 2018 and 2019. In court documents, Carol said she had found Dylan an excellent boarding school and wanted to keep him enrolled.
