Guy Fieri has become the face of Food Network over the years as he has hosted numerous TV series on the network. Circa 2011, the Emmy-winning television presenter was involved in an extremely unpleasant custody battle over his nephew, Jules Fieri, after his sister, Morgan, passed away on February 29, 2011.
Read the article until the very end to learn about Guy Fieri’s nephew, Jules Fieri, from his biological parents to his personal life and age.
Meet Jules Fieri, Guy Fieri’s Nephew!
After Morgan died of metastatic melanoma in 2011, there has been a lot of confusion regarding what Guy’s relationship with Jules is. Although official sources make it clear that the full custody of Jules is with his biological father, some people still believe Guy has custody of Jules and acts like his father.
Guy Fieri is no one but an uncle to Jules. However, their friendship and camaraderie can make you think something else. The duo is seen together in many photos uploaded on Guy’s Instagram. On the Instagram post of August 10, 2020, Jules and Guy were seen having fun fishing.
Jules is also close with Guy’s sons, Ryder and Hunter Fieri.
Jules Fieri Parents
At this point, everyone knows Morgan Fieri was Jules’s mother. Morgan was a massage therapist, a dancer, and a philanthropist by profession. But, what many people might still not know is who Jules’ father is.
Jules Fieri was the first and only child of Dain Pape and Morgan Fieri. Although we don’t know many things about Jules’ parents’ relationship like when they started dating or when they broke up, we do know that Dain was not together with Morgan at the time of her passing.
less fieMorgan, who was an openly gay person, was in a relationship with a woman named Annie Anterpara before her passing. After Morgan’s death, Jules’ custody went to Dain as Annie was not Jules’ legal guardian. Since Jules was living with his grandparents (or Morgan and Guy’s parents) and they deemed Dain incapable of parenting Jules, the whole custody battle broke out, which we will get to in the next subheading.
Jules Fieri Custody Battle
When Morgan passed away after her year-long battle with metastatic melanoma, a custody battle broke out over Jules between his grandparents (Jim and Penelope Ferry) and his biological dad Dain Pape.
Jules was living with his grandparents at the time of his mom’s passing. Immediately after Morgan’s demise, Dain Pape came into the scene and demanded full custody of Jules with a Marin County judge.
However, Jules’ grandparents claimed that Dain was unfit to parent because he had no income and was “living out of his motor home.” Unfortunately, the judge gave full custody of Jules to his dad Dain Pape.
When Morgan passed away, a custody dispute broke out over Jules. His grandparents (aka Morgan and Guy’s parents) had originally taken him into their care. However, dad Dain Pape demanded full custody of his son, according to TMZ.
However, TMZ reported that even after the court ruling in favor of Dain, Jules was not returned to him. Pape claimed that Jules was vacationing with his uncle on a remote lake in Northern California. He also told that he avoided any travel to the lake to steer clear of any kind of confrontation with the Fieri family.
As of now, Dain is Jules’ legal guardian. However, we do not know how this issue got resolved.
