Love After Lockup: Life After Lockup star Brittany Santiago is now the sole legal guardian of her four year old son Giovanni because her baby's father, Tito, failed a drug test . He tested positive for drugs - including Methamphetamines.
According to Brittany's attorney, the reality star was granted temporary sole legal custody and temporary primary physical custody.
Brittany and Tito were both required to take a drug test after their August 6 mediation hearing. Brittany passed her test, but Tito “tested positive for THC, Amphetamine, and Methamphetamine.”
Brittany's attorney immediately filed the emergency application. Here's some of what is in the legal filing:
Brittany is concerned with the safety of the Parties’ minor child, Giovanni, being in [Tito’s] unsupervised care due to his drug use and the potential risk of harm to his minor child that could result from Plaintiff’s drug use while the minor child is in Plaintiff’s care.
Brittany is further concerned that Plaintiff’s drug use will not only inhibit his ability to care for the minor child, but also increase his anger/impulse control issues, placing the minor child in further danger. Adding to this concern is the fact that Plaintiff has sent harassing/abusive communications since the most recent hearing.
The court agreed with Brittany's attorney - and granted her temporary sole custody.
