Zach Roerig Custody — ‘Vampire Diaries’ Star Seeking Sole Custody

Zach’s custody battle comes after the mother of his child, a woman named Alanna Turner, was sentenced to federal prison, according to TMZ. In legal documents the actor filed in Georgia in June, Zach asks to change the current custody arrangement he has with Alanna and seeks full custody of their daughter.

Alanna has been in jail three times, and is currently behind bars in a federal prison after she pled guilty to “various crimes,” according to TMZ.

Zach Roerig Seeks Child Support

Although Zach has had a successful career as an actor, appearing on Friday Night Lights and One Life to Live, he has asking Alanna for some child support for his little girl. It’s not clear what Alanna did for a living, but she lives in Atlanta, Ga., according to her Twitter.

Zach has kept his personal life mostly out of the spotlight, especially since his 2012 split from his Vampire Diaries co-star Candice Accolco.

We hope everything gets resolved, and Zach and his little girl can live a happy life together.
