According to TMZ, the 28-year-old is battling Alanna Turner, the mother of his daughter, who was born in January 2011. The TVD star wishes to be granted sole custody of the child because “Alanna has been arrested at least three times and is actually incarcerated right now after she pled guilty in federal court to ‘various crimes’… He’s also asking that his jail-bird baby mama cough up child support.”
This comes as a major surprise as it was rumored that Zach was dating fellow Vampire Diaries star Candice Accola from 2011-2012. The two reportedly called it quits just weeks after it was announced that their hit CW show was picked up for a fourth season.
In better news, we spent an entire day with Zach’s Vampire Diaries co-star, Kat Graham!
