Tim Allen ‘callously’ avoiding TV son Zachery Ty Bryan as he battles legal woes
Tim Allen 'wants nothing to do with Zach and his problems,' an insider shared
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Tim Allen has reportedly been avoiding his ‘Home Improvement’ son Zachery Ty Bryan as he deals with his legal issues.
Bryan has lately been in the news for allegedly being involved in domestic disputes with his former fiancee and the mother of their children —- Johnnie Faye Cartwright.
He was reportedly arrested twice.
‘Tim wants nothing to do with Zach’
A source said, as reported by RadarOnline.com, “Tim wants nothing to do with Zach and his problems. But he'll take Zach's calls occasionally and say he'll get back to him, but doesn't.”
“To some friends, it seems callous. They feel Zach deserves a break just like Tim did,” the insider shared, referring to the time when Allen faced prison time of two years for carrying over a pound of cocaine in his luggage in 1978.
The 70-year-old actor earlier said, “I was f-up.”
‘He deviated from the guy I know’
This comes as Allen called out Bryan after it was alleged that he cheated investors by presenting fake business contracts.
The 'Santa Clause’ star said, as per The Hollywood Reporter, “I don’t know what’s going on with him. Zach is a great kid who has grown into a complex man."
“All you can do is step aside and let somebody go through their process. At a certain point, he deviated from the guy I know to somebody who is reacting to situations that I had nothing to do with and can’t control.”
He added, “I don’t know what happens when people get corrupted. You just don’t know.”
‘My life flipped upside down’
Allen and Bryan worked together in ‘Home Improvement’ for several years.
About the experience, the 42-year-old actor reportedly said, “Those were some of the best days of my life.”
He added, “Obviously, my life flipped upside down and everywhere you go, people know who you are, but I give a lot of credit to my dad and my mom because they always kept me grounded.”
