The Liz and Getty Sobriety

In 1992, I began therapy at Phoenix Art Therapy on Willamette in Eugene. I had four years of sobriety. I graduated from the New Hope program at Serenity Lane. My childhood friend, Nancy Hamren was at my graduation. She gave the Kesey family her grandmother’s recipe for yogurt.

There were paintings of Phoenix Birds on the walls, rendered by artists who were helped. I was looking for a way to mend my relationship with my famous sister, Christine Rosamond Benton. I was dismissed by my therapist because I refused to do a simple genealogy of my family so she could follow the names I recited. I just read this……

“Paul squandered his genealogical inheritance,”

My sobriety was a great threat to all members of my family, and Stacey Pierrot who was sold Christine’s estate that she left to her two daughters who were nine and twenty-thee when their mother died. Shannon was the adult heir. Her attorney fought Garth Benton being named executor, and, Larry Chazen, a Getty right-hand man. To be viciously attacked by Kim Hafner, a trained nurse who took care of patients in a mental ward, is a WAKE-UP call!

I have shared too much in this blog, and have left myself open to the feeding frenzy of parasites. Kim Hafner has violated a Nursing Code. A million addict and alcoholics have seen the inside of a mental ward. Many famous addicts in recovery found themselves in the Coo-Coo’s Nest.

My nieces squandered tens of thousands of dollars fighting each other in court thanks to Garth Benton’s need to control the estate of my late sister, and all the information. The Benton’s were being investigated by the IRS. Christine’s 276 page autobiography was disappeared. I suspect she was offering a defence  of why she was not responsible for paying taxes. It looked like several people would go to jail.

For Kim Hafner to go after my daughter, the cousin of my nieces, and employ her in her need to assassinate my character – is criminal!  Heather came into my life when she was sixteen. I knew she was looking for permission to drink and do drugs. That is the core of our battle, and my struggle, since 2001. Kim Hafner gave her that permission by giving her a report saying I am “mentally deranged” and thus, my sobriety is – no good! Here is the second step in AA.

“Came to believe a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.”

I am going to do what I should have done back in 1995. I am going send a report to the IRS. Here is Shannon Rosamond’s attorney. This makes Reseda High’s most famous alumni look like a scoundrel – because that is what he was!

Garth Benton set Shannon up for a false arrest, and while in handcuffs set her mothers cremated remains out on the stoop. Christine’s ashes were stolen from a warehouse and ended up in a motel that catered to prostitutes. When Garth and my niece went to Rocky Point to spread my sister’s ashes at sea, he called up Shannon, told her what he was doing – and laughed at her. This is how my book and movies will begin.

I have proven I am kin to Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, and she is kin to the Getty family via Aileen. Most of the people in these two genealogies have suffered from addictions, a disease that will be passed to OUR offspring. My thirty years of sobriety is a Life Saver. How I manage not to take my next drink after being attacked and slander, is a Life Saver unto these famous families who are stalked, slimed, and slandered – daily!

I am a member in good standing of the State Bar of
California and an attorney on record for 50% interest in Shannon
Rosamond. In my 16 years as a member of the State Bar California, I
have never experienced a more deliberate fraud on any court or more
reckless and calculated attempt to fraudulently take control of a
probate estate at the exclusion of the lawful heirs and total
manipulation of a testor’s intent that the present efforts of
Attorney’s Robin Beare, Lawrence J. Chazen and Garth Benton, the
descendants former spouse.

Since her mother’s death, Shannon Rosamond has made continual
attempts to obtain pertinent information concerning her mother’s
estate and also obtain her mother’s cremated remains so that she
could conduct a proper memorial service.”

The nursing oath, by comparison, is fairly new to the practice. The Nightingale Pledge was composed by Lystra Gretter, an instructor of nursing at Harper Hospital in Detroit, Michigan, and was first used by its graduating class in the spring of 1893. It is an adaptation of the Hippocratic Oath.

I solemnly pledge myself before God and in the presence of this assembly, to pass my life in purity and to practice my profession faithfully. I will abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous, and will not take or knowingly administer any harmful drug. I will do all in my power to maintain and elevate the standard of my profession, and will hold in confidence all personal matters committed to my keeping and all family affairs coming to my knowledge in the practice of my calling. With loyalty will I endeavor to aid the physician, in his work, and devote myself to the welfare of those committed to my care.

After their wedding, which effectively cut him off from the Getty family wealth, the couple settled in Los Angeles, where they enjoyed a brief period of marital bliss, until Paul lost himself to drug addiction.

“He was doing too many drugs,” Copetas says. “There was a court case in Los Angeles late 1974 –1975, which, as I best recall, centered on Gail and/or a group of attorneys taking legal stewardship of Paul’s affairs, which Paul was adamantly against.”

Copetas expresses sadness over Paul’s drug addiction and what he considers to be a “squandered” inheritance.

“Paul squandered his genealogical inheritance,” he says. “The Gettys were the most dysfunctional family in many ways. Paul was on his own. He was a child, a lost child.”

Eventually Paul’s addiction caught up with him and at 25, he suffered a massive stroke from an overdose that left him paralyzed, nearly-blind and limited his speech.

    My sister was a world famous artist that suffered from mental illness. Many famous, and non-famous artists, were mentally ill. This goes for writers.
