Massullo's minutes filed on Sept. 12 said Bronstein "can provide a more structured continuity, stable, secure, and consistent home that child, Roan needs."
And in the tentative statement Monday, Massullo wrote, "Father has championed for Roan's well-being out of, what appears to this Court, nothing less than the unconditional love for his son. Unfortunately, and for unexplained reasons, it appears that Mother did not involve herself to the extent she could or should have in this process ... Mother has attempted to put up roadblocks to Roan's getting help, or has decided against participating in his care."
The court documents also provide a glimpse into the ongoing battle between Bronstein and Stone over custody of Roan. The couple married on Feb. 14, 1998, and adopted Roan shortly after his birth on June 1, 2000. By July 2003, they had separated.
After their 2004 divorce, both filed for sole custody. Stone stated that she had been Roan's primary caretaker since he was a baby. Bronstein disputed that, saying Roan's care was "delegated to a series of full-time nannies," although he did concede that Stone's career meant she had to spend a great deal of time away from their son.
Up through kindergarten, Roan alternated spending three weeks with each parent, traveling with a nanny hired by Stone between the two cities. In November 2005, a judge ordered a two-year rotating schedule, in which Roan would live with Bronstein for the first two years and his mother the following two.
The October 2007 ruling changed that, and Bronstein was given temporary primary custody of Roan during the school year. This latest ruling by Massullo will make that arrangement permanent. All the other custody arrangements laid out in the 2007 order -- that Stone have Roan one weekend per month, most of the summers and some holidays -- remain the same.
Singer said in his statement: "Sharon loves her son Roan and only wants the best for him."
