Van Damme's Agony Over Son

Movie tough-guy JEAN-CLAUDE VAN DAMME hopes his latest big-screen outing will reunite him with his estranged teenage son. The Universal Soldier star has no contact with 13-year-old Nicholas since his bitter divorce from fourth wife Darcy LaPier ended with him losing a custody battle.
He is adamant the teenager is even banned from contacting his siblings, Van Damme's other children - Kristopher, 21, and 18-year-old Bianca. But the musclebound movie star is pinning his hopes on a reunion.
The actor is about to return to the big screen in semi-autobiographical film JCVD - and wants the movie to prove to his youngest son that his father is not a failure.
Van Damme tells British newspaper The Sun, "The only way I can bring my son back is to be successful again as they were saying to him, 'Your father is a loser'.
"The custody case is very painful. The legal system in California is crazy. For me not to see my kid is a disaster. You cannot do that to nobody. It has got to the point where Nicholas cannot communicate with my other children on Facebook.
"My other son is making a movie and wants my youngest son to be in the film because he is thinking about him. So they were communicating about the script. Someone found out and he was cut off."
