Nooooooo! Ross Gellar always has the worst of luck, doesn’t he?
I’m sure it’s hard to believe, but it’s been well over a decade since we last saw the cast of Friends together on the small screen. Fast-forward to 2015, and we’re still talking about one of the most successful situation comedies of all time, as there’s a new fan theory that says Ross Gellar might have lost custody of his son, Ben.
Shocked? I know. Let’s back track a little here.
Blogger D.F. Lovett suggests that the reason why Ben basically disappears during the last three seasons of the show is that because Ross simply lost custody of the boy, who he shared with his ex-wife Carole.
Lovett writes on his website, “Sure, on first thought, Ross’s shenanigans seem just as cheeky and fun as the rest of the gang. He loves dinosaurs. He dresses up as the Holiday Armadillo. He claims to have invented the Got Milk? catchphrase. But what about all that other weird stuff he does?”
Are you freaking out yet? Because there’s more.
Lovett adds, “He sleeps with at least one of his students. He is known for being a terrible professor, both unethical and unskilled. And finally, worst of all, there is the situation with his children.”
While I always saw Ross as pretty quirky, the writer goes as far as calling him emotionally abusive.
