AceShowbiz - Anne Heche's estate is slapped with a $2 million lawsuit. Lynne Mishele, who owned the house Anne smashed into and destroyed in a car crash that took her life at the age of 53, has filed a lawsuit against the actress' estate following a fiery car crash in LA in August 2022.
"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," read court documents obtained by ETOnline.
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 after it was revealed that her ex James Tupper's 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 13-year-old son Atlas, whom he shared with the late star, 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.
