          March 3, 2017

          Donna and Len say they are estranged from their son, Brandon. They say he moved to Los Angeles to pursue his dream of becoming a rock drummer – against their wishes -- and that he blames them for his lack of success.

          In the video above, Donna reads what she calls “horrific” emails that Brandon sends her.

          “His emails are meant to hurt us. I don’t even know where he comes up with that stuff. And he doesn’t think there’s anything wrong,” she says.

          Len adds, “The emails are scathing, vicious, hateful emails. It’s just not the son that I know. It’s very disturbing.”
