Los Angeles - Paul Walker's mother will drop her claim for guardianship of his teenage daughter if her mum goes to rehab.

Cheryl Walker had been due to go to court last week to land temporary guardianship of 15-year-old Meadow - who moved to live with her father three years ago allegedly because of her mother Rebecca Soteros' drinking problem - but postponed the hearing after reaching an agreement with the teenager's surviving parent.

Rebecca is said to have promised Cheryl she will check into rehab immediately as being with Meadow is the "most important thing'' to her, and in return, the teenager's grandmother promised to drop her application for guardianship if Rebecca successfully completed treatment and agreed to drug testing afterwards.

According to website TMZ, Rebecca started a detox programme on Friday, and will enter full-time rehab in a week.

The teenager is said to be "happy" with the agreement and Cheryl "won't gain any control," despite The Fast and the Furious star - who died in a car accident in November - stating in his will that he wanted his mother to be his daughter's guardian.

Cheryl's lawyer, Bela G. Lugosi, also confirmed: "Parties involved are trying to resolve whatever the issues are so that this matter goes off calendar."
