The estate of Anne Heche is being sued for $2 million.
The 'Another World' actress - who is survived by her 20-year-old sons Homer and 13-year-old son Atlas - died in August 2022 following a fiery car crash in LA at the age of 53 and now her eldest son and ex-partner James Tupper - who were left in charge of her estate - are being taken to court by Lynne Mishele, who owned the house Anne smashed into and destroyed.
Court documents obtained by ETOnline read: "It was as though a record-breaking earthquake had hit, and [Mishele] was right in the middle and on the fault line. A blood analysis performed after the incident confirmed the presence of both cocaine and narcotics, including fentanyl, in Heche's system."
The documents went on to acknoweldge that although Mishele and her pets survived the incident, she was left "completely traumatized" and homeless and had lost a "lifetime" of possessions.
The documents read: "Thick smoke, heavy fumes and enveloping flames instantly followed. Thankfully, (Mishele) and her pets, which she regards as family, avoided death that day. As a direct consequence of Heche’s outrageous conduct and unlawful acts, (Mishele) and her beloved pets almost lost their lives, not to mention that (Mishele) also had an entire life’s worth of her personal possessions destroyed in the fire."
The outlet went on to claim that Mishele is asking for at least $2 million in compensation but the claim could be more depending on the total value of damages from the crash.
News of the lawsuit comes less than a mother after it was revealed that James' valuation is five times more than the $400,000 total placed on it by her 20-year-old son Homer Laffoon.
As the war over the ‘Donnie Brasco’ actress’ estate deepens, James, 57, has also claimed the son they shared, Atlas, has been locked out of her home.
The claims were made in a new court petition for control over Anne’s estate lodged last week by James.
MailOnline reported that James’ valuation says Anne had property of $1.6million, with a $400,000 annual gross income from it – a total of $2 million.
