Robert Kennedy Sent Daughter Kyra To Live With Cheryl Hines After Mother’s Suicide

How insensitive! While Kyra, 16, was depressed and mourning the suicide of her mother, her dad made her live with the girlfriend whom her mother couldn’t stand.

Shortly after Mary Kennedy‘s tragic suicide in May, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. sent his daughter Kyra Kennedy, 16, to live with his girlfriend Cheryl Hines in Los Angeles — while she was still mourning the death of her mom.

“Kyra took the news of her mother’s death very, very hard,” a source told RadarOnline.com

“She started going off the rails a bit and the family was concerned over what she would do, how it would all play out. The last thing the Kennedys wanted was another embarrassing scandal, so, Robert decided the best move was to pack her off to live with Cheryl in L.A., away from her friends and any bad influences.”

The decision to send his daughter across the country was controversial, especially since the late Mary was extremely upset to find out her husband was involved with the Curb Your Enthusiasm actress.

But a source close to Cheryl said the change of scenery was a positive move for the 16-year-old who was facing a downward spiral.

“Cheryl is a complete sweetheart and she is a great mother,” the source said. “She has a very calming manner and is very upbeat and positive, so it is a great environment for Kyra to be in.”

What do YOU think of Kyra living in LA with Cheryl HollyMoms?

No matter what was true about the situation, to send a daughter to live with a girlfriend whose presence (not to mention callousness and lack of discretion) caused pain for the biological mom is INCREDIBLY inappropriate. Grieving intensely (with sheltering family support) is a normal response to loss of a mother by suicide, and should be allowed to take its natural course. Heart goes out to Kyra. May she find her own beautiful path with the love of APPROPRIATE nurturers. If C was of pure intent, she’d back off the children.

During a divorce many times the person with the most money gets custody. It doesn’t matter who is the better parent or that they should split custody between them. Instead of being fair to the ex and helping the children, custody is thought of as a game someone should win. Just split custody and stop all this fighting. The kids will end up resenting the parent that took them away from the other parent. I’ve seen it and so have a lot of people.

First off: SharonT, Mary was NEVER arrested for “abusing her husband and kids”. Don’t YOU have any shame making such a comment about someone who can no longer defend herself? You must be a friend of the slut and bastard aka Cheryl and RFK Jr. Mary was the kind of mother who made 4 different meals for Christmas so each of her kids could have their favorite Christmas meal! Do you think this disgusting Hines woman would do that for anyone? I agree with other comments here than Cheryl’s daughter will grow up to be just as big a heartless slut as her mother. Cheryl can’t be anything other than a bad mother. Hanging out with a married man and happily posing for pics and then tweeting about her life with Mary’s husband and kids knowing that Mary would see it. Every since Mary’s suicide we’ve been hearing from the bastard and his sister that Mary was sick, unstable, depressed etc. What does it say about all of them that they acted so cold heartedly towards someone they knew to be in pain?? May Cheryl Hines experience for herself one day the pain she so gleefully helped to inflict on another woman and mother. Why couldn’t the bastard ask for one of Mary’s sisters to take Kyra in? He has put the Richardsons through hell, first denying them the right to bury their sister and then moving Mary’s grave site quietly (they only found out after a reporter called their lawyer about it!!) God help those kids!

let’s get the facts straight……Robert filed for divorce in 2010 & Mary killed herself in 2012 so all you nasty Cheryl haters need to shut the hell up!!!! she was not the cause of the failing marriage…..Robert tried for years to get Mary help for her bipolar issues & yes look up old articles & see how many times police were called for domestic & Mary was the problem…….not saying Mary was a bad person but she was constantly falling apart & i’m sure that years of that became to much……she also drank……so let’s not judge Robert or Cheryl for trying to find some happiness!!!

Kyra can pick-up some great tips on how to be a mistress and sleeping with married men, she is being taught by the lowest Hollywood has to offer, Cheryl Hines, her only claim to fame, being a mistress

I totally agree with bluff that all cheryl hines is going known as from now on if she wants respect back she would have nothing to do with Mary’s children and the kennedy family I wonder what cheryl hines parents thinks about all this they must be very proud that they have raised a cold hearted woman with no self respect way to go mr and mrs hines

“Poor Mary” was an alcoholic and bi-polar who wasn’t taking her medication and who had been arrested for physically abusing her husband and kids. If the Kennedy daughter actually felt comfortable and safe with the GF in LA, better there than back at home with reporters and others trailing after. Sure the poor girl was mourning her mother — but the mother had lost custody of those kids for a reason, lets not forget that.

“poor mary”- YAH, RIGHT! she certainly has a lot of delusional friends and family with a lot of time on their hands tho (see, donna macfarlane), b/c they’re always on these sites pushing the most ridiculous positions! poor mary was a train wreck entirely independent of cheryl and kennedy. i don’t stand up for any of the kennedy men, of course, but this woman was a disaster at her own hands- not b/c of a kennedy. she was a drunk, mentally ill, and totally out of control showing up trashed at churches and schools and such. i don’t care what kind of jerk your husband is, you hold yourself together for your kids— unless you’re sick. she was sick, but it wasn’t kennedy’s fault. those kids probably wanted to be with cheryl. i don’t get why cheryl is being trashed, at all. kennedy will probably be awful to her, too, eventually- but i’m sure she won’t get trashed and drive through towns, churches, and schools b/c of it. poor mary was sick, yes- i will actually have to say, yes, she was pitiful. but, that was in her character- not kennedy’s doing. not to mention, didn’t i read that she stole him from someone else in the first place? so, she wasn’t some innocent little thing. anybody who gets involved with a kennedy man, particularly under less than pristine circumstances, can hardly be caught off guard by what they ended up with.

@Sharon T. finally someone who gets it……..all these other hatefull people bashing Cheryl are pathedic!!! Mary had problems for years & i’m sure her children loved her but i’m sure that she put them & Robert through hell……Cheryl did not break up the marriage…..Robert had left Mary & got custody of the children a long time ago.

Mary had problems because of Bobby constantly cheating and never being home or around for this è kids. He’s a narcissistic pig, and Cheryl will get what she deserves. Any woman, including Chelsea Kirwan, knows he’s a womanizer. Funny how Kerry Kennedy (the Kennedy sister who was best friends with Mary in college and fixed her up with. Bobby – why do that if Mary was crazy? Perhaps Kerry was as crazy as she says Mary was???? Everyone of those Kennedy’s is a nut job including Ethel the fool who still doesn’t think her husband was screwing Marilyn Monroe and killed her along with peter lawford!). The Kennedy’s think they can have whoever they want and do whatever they please. They poor examples for parents. It is a disgrace that Bobby sent Lyra to live with that fame slut who just wants to be a Kennedy. What for? To be cheated on or worse? Look at how he’s been cheating on her these two years he’s been with her while cheating with Chelsea kirwan?!!!! It will happen again and again bec he’s a sex addict.

I totally agree with tee this is a woman who that I have one and that’s all I want well look want she has now I would if she will drive miles for the kids schools projects like mary did I doubt that very much and if she is such a good mother why was half way round the world in sweden last week with bobby she concentrate on being a mother to her own daughter. If not she will probably grow up like her mother a cold heartless woman who dates married men who’s wife mary just wants her husband and children back and now poor mary is dead. I don’t know how cheryl hines can look those four children in the eyes. Over the last few. months just show what sort of person cheryl hines is someone who couldnt care less about what her actions has caused

Could the mother have been part depressed by husband having girlfriend in the first place? Very selfish people indeed, and I am sure this girl has more appropiate relatives to stay with in these very challenging times.

This woman has no shame any decent woman would have nothing to do with those children and the family after poor mary died this shows that cheryl did not any guilt like she claims she felt like any decent human being would do this shows she is a cold hearted woman who could not care less about mary my heart goes out to those children I know how it feels my mother died the same ways last year. You only have one mother and no other woman will replace your mothers love
