According to documents filed in family court, actor Jason Patric is seeking a joint custody arrangement of his son with his long-term but now, ex-girlfriend. An element which makes the actor's child custody request complicated is that he agreed to be a sperm donor for his ex-girlfriend after they broke up. Their sperm donor arrangement was that his ex-girlfriend would keep the artificial insemination a secret and not seek child support from the actor. A child was conceived in 2009.
