Naveen Andrews Gains Custody of Son

Naveen Andrews, star of “Lost”, has gained sole physical and legal custody of his three-year old son Naveen Joshua in L.A. County Superior Court yesterday.  Naveen Joshua was previously in joint custody with Andrews and mother Elena Eustache, but when Eustache allegedly took her son out of L.A. County without permission and is claimed to have kept her son away from Andrews, the family law judge modified the custody order.

Under this new order, Andrews can now bring his son to Hawaii where “Lost” is filmed. Andrews’ girlfriend, Barbara Hershey, was also granted the right to accompany the boy.  A full custody hearing is scheduled for next month.
