'The Vampire Diaries' Actor Zach Roerig Seeks Sole Custody Of Secret Daughter
Zach Roerig has launched a lawsuit against his incarcerated ex-girlfriend in a bid to gain sole custody of their child.
The Vampire Diaries star, who plays Matt Donovan in the hit TV show, has a daughter with a woman named Alanna Turner, but he kept the 2011 birth out of the public eye until recently.
According to TMZ.com, Roerig filed legal paperwork in Georgia last month applying for sole custody of the two year old on the basis of Turner's current incarceration.
In the documents, Roerig reportedly claims Turner is currently behind bars following three arrests and a guilty plea in federal court to "various crimes."
The actor is also asking for Turner to pay him child support.
