His In-Laws Fought For His Daughter’s Custody; How Chris’ Heart Attack Led Him And His Wife To Porn
Reports stated Brandi’s parents and Chris’s in-laws wanted custody of the child because they felt she was not in an ideal surrounding owing to Brandi’s line of work. Chris and his wife countered the decision and managed to keep their daughter.
Apparently, before Brandi decided to try a career in pornography, Chris had a stress-induced heart attack. This became one of the reasons that led him and his wife to start making adult content from home. It was in March of 2004. For the previous three years, he had been flying an average of 240 flights a year and was home about 9 days a month.
This increased the risk of their child growing up in the wrong environment.
The grandparents contacted child protection services to rescue the daughter. However, after a series of investigations the authority found nothing compromising about the child’s immediate environment that could be a cause of concern for the child. Chris and his wife ultimately got the right to keep and raise their daughter.
Amidst the custody, the businessman and the adult film actress set up a website to help get support from people and other adult film professionals who had also gone through a similar experience. The site was called Parent In Adult.
