AceShowbiz - Actor Randy Quaid and his wife are facing a lawsuit over a house.
Lannette and R. Scott Turicchi allege the "Independence Day" actor and Evi Quaid are trying to claim a house they sold in 1993 still belongs to them.
According to The Blast, the Quaids sold the home in 1993 to a couple referred to as the Bermans, who then sold the property to the Turicchi family in 2007 for $5.3 million (GBP4 million). The Turicchis allege the actor and his wife contacted bosses at their lending company in 2016 and insisted the Bermans should not have sold the home to them, because they were still the rightful owners.
Randy and Evi reportedly alleged the deed for the home was fraudulent and their signatures on it were forged. They also claimed they had no knowledge the house had been sold to the Bermans.
However, the Turicchis are using the Quaids' bankruptcy filing in 2000, in which they stated they did not have any real estate assets, as evidence they no longer own the place. They also allege the actor and Evi moved out of the home and the Bermans subsequently lived there for 15 years before selling it to them.
The Turicchis are requesting a court order declaring them the rightful owners of the property, an injunction barring the Quaids from making claims on the property, damages, and attorneys fees.
