Hello mother ; Nowadays, people have much more complicated relationships and child-bearing, don't they ? And they seem not to pay enough attention to the effects on the children they create and too often leave behind, of the choices they have made.
And isn't it a real tragedy that so many people don't believe a child when they reveal that they are being abused or otherwise cruelly treated ?
Think of this poor lad, whose mother has chosen to get her own life into such a mess that he knows she has rejected and discarded him, and now he finds his father's new wife doesn't want him either.
Your son is, at best, indulging in Wishful Thinking, not wanting to think that his wife could be unkind to the child, and refusing to look ibnto that very real and common possibility.
I hope that other readers with more experience in such matters can provide some helpful suggestions here. Maybe it'd be worthwhile asking child welfare authorities to get involved and to get someone with real child psych skills to properly assess the little boy, Maybe they could consider giving you custody of the child for at least the time being.
Sorry to hear that your son isn't wise enough wither to face the truth about what's going on, or to listen to his mother's advice. If he care's so little for the child, would he object to the idea of the boy living with you for a time ?
