    There is a mistake in the link to the site at the end of the story. Ms. Greene you have fuencr instead of fluencr.

    given the outcomes of his life – 3 ex-wives, a drug overdose child, and this kid – maybe it was Sasson and not everyone else. You reap what you sow.

      Yeah, I was thinking the same thing – given the rest of the family, it sounds like maybe some of the problems were related to him. And the fact that he says he walked away from his son is pretty telling. As a parent, I don’t think you ever stop trying.

        No matter what you never “walk away” from your children!! Just shows what kind of dad he really was.

    • Rick on March 24, 2013 at 9:17 pm

      Agreed. 2+2=4. Mr. Sasson must have not been very good with math.

    He also had another son named Elan Sassoon but there is no mention of him!

    she better watch her back, I bet david comes after her to get revenge.

    Could he have considered that the one common denominator in his children’s lives was him? I understand, as a parent, a child will choose to do what they will. But, one child dead from drugs, another child who also was acting out to the point of being disinherited, multiple failed marriages for the father…sounds to me like these kids were brought up around a ton of money, a ton of celebrity parties, a ton of poor relationships, then held accountable for the behavior they were taught.

    Shame on the parents. Perhaps the son is better off in life without the temptation of money.

    You don’t walk away from your CHILD. So they might be difficult, life isn’t easy. You love your family. They are your FAMILY. Set up a trust if you think he is unreliable, make it so he’s secure but it can’t be blown by him and his offspring can inherit the trust as well and hopefully improve. You don’t cut them loose. What he wrote about his son being “dead” to him, more or less, the cutting out of wives, he sounds like a cold and petty man. I would like to think his surviving daughter will be reasonable and make sure his family is taken care of. I don’t think all these wives and his son were the problem, I think it was him.

      Unless he’s black and dissolute.

    Its obvious this guy was a piss poor father. No pun intended.

    ‘There’s a certain point in my character where if I feel a situation is hopeless – walk away.’ . . . .this means that he was a loser that gave up on his family. Just pathetic.

    Lucky Catya! I hope she’s level-headed and lives a good life. Adopted kids are a crap shoot–you never know what you’ll get. Sometimes parents of adopted kids know how to handle the problems and sometimes they don’t. I’ve experienced being a sibling to an adopted child and a grandmother to a child who was put up for adoptopm and neither child gave their adoptive parents joy for very long.
