Absolute nonsense. I know this family personally and this family tension and jealously turned into something completely untrue and disrespectful

If you lived within earshot of the Rooneys you would know this awful story to be true. The person who left the previous reply obviously does not know them as well as they think or has something to gain from saying otherwise.

I know Chris Aber and he is a great guy. He respects Mickey and stands up for him.
This story is a bunch of crap.

Chris Aber is NOT Mickey's son.

Chris is Jan Rooney's son by a prior marriage.

I dated Chris for a couple of years and was remained friends for man more years. Chris was intimidated by Mickey. AND WOULD never hurt or take advantage of him. I traveled with them both and even though he wasnt Mickeys biological son, he treated him as won, and gave him alot of love, visa versa. Chris was always nervous to make sure mickey was everywhere he needed to be and he was happy. Mickey was dieting always, and we always made sure he had the best food and stayed out of his way. I NEVER saw anything even slightly mean or rude or envy ever!!! He did have nothing to do with his money at that time.

My dad Charles went to Europe on the Queen Mary with Mickey Rooney. World war 2. I have a letter my dad wrote to his family telling about the trip over and how neat it was to be on the same ship as Mickey. My dad so wanted to see him before he passed away(before my dad passed away that is). Will Mickey be coming back to Hagerstown any time soon?? We just missed him in 2003.

We recently saw Mickey at Bearcreek Farms near Bryant Indiana. He was wonderful! I was very concerned when for no apparent reason he fell flat on his back. His stage manager rushed out and got him to his feet and as they walked off the stage he waved to everyone and said he was ok. For a ninety+ year old man I was sure he would have been badly injured. He is one great trooper...I guess his early stage life has been ingrained in him. I am a 70+ year old woman and been around almost as long as Mickey and I wish him well. I hope he didn't suffer any bad effects from that fall. He did an outstanding job that afternoon in Bryant Indiana! You are amazing Mickey!!!!

Given the horrible grammar and spelling errors in your post, I am not sure your endorsement is a plus.

Given that Mickey just testified before congress, and that he got a restraining order, this "family tension and jealousy" comes down to Mickey Rooney saying, "I am being neglected and abused," and people jealous of the fortune the man made saying, "No he isn't." I'll trust Mickey Rooney.

Whether you call what happened abuse or not, Mickey thinks he was being abused, and the man is not senile! He is not an idiot, and he is not a whimp.

That leaves me thinking Chris needs to go to jail.

Just some input, my dad is 86 years old and I find it very hard to be with him. He has dementia and is on meds. The horrible issue here is that one moment he is my dad and the next moment he is yelling that someone took his wallet or his cell phone. Hell, he called me at 2:00 am yelling at me because I took his jacket from him when we were at dinner that night. The strange thing about that was that I have not had dinner with my dad in the last 2 months
I am not passing on guilt to Chris (just yet)but, first we need Mickey to see a doc just in case he's in the beginning stages of dementia. Let's hope not!
By the way Dawn your an ideot! Learn to at least use spell check. IDIOT!
