LATEST: The ex-wife of movie mogul Jon Peters has hit back at his claim she's trying to extort funds by demanding child support for her kids.
The SUPERMAN RETURNS producer is taking legal action to evict Christine Forsyth-Peters and her two children from his Hollywood mansion, where they have lived for 11 years.
Last week (13JUL06) Peters' attorney said, "Despite the fact their marriage only lasted two months... 16 years later, Christine is trying to extract more money from Jon. For some, there is never enough money to be taken from the kindhearted and generous."
But a seething Christine retorts she has been entirely misrepresented.
Her lawyer, SORRELL TROPE, tells PageSix.com, "This case raises critical issues concerning the rights of children where a person, albeit not the natural parent, has acted as their parent for an extended period of time.
"The man they have known as their father is now denying he is their parent. The issue is not whether Ms. Peters is seeking to reopen her divorce with Mr Peters and extract more money. Mr Peters inserted himself into the children's lives and established a long-lasting bond with them. Ms Peters seeks merely to protect the rights and needs on behalf of her children."
Movie mogul Jon Peters is taking legal action to evict his ex-wife Christine Forsyth-Peters and their two adopted children from his Hollywood mansion.
The SUPERMAN RETURNS producer owns the Beverly Hills, California property in which Christine has lived with adopted daughters CALEIGH and SKYE for 11 years.
Jon has never paid child support for their daughters, and Christine "always assumed the house was in lieu of cash", according to PageSix.com.
But the film-maker claims he only wanted to redecorate the mansion, not evict anyone, and that Christine refused his reasonable requests to do so.
His lawyer STEPHEN KOLODNY says, "It is untrue that Jon Peters is attempting to throw Christine Peters out of her house.
"The home is not owned by Christine Peters. Mr Peters' estate has provided Christine and her daughters with a lovely house to live in rent-free for the past 11 years.
"The need for the intervention of the court arose when Mr Peters merely attempted to do some remodeling work on the house, which would not have unreasonably interfered with its use by Christine or the girls - but Christine refused to allow him to do so.
"Jon's previous numerous attempts to adopt the girls (since their split) have been thwarted by Christine. Now she wants to impose upon him the legal obligation of child support because it suits her present purposes.
"Despite the fact their marriage only lasted two months... 16 years later, Christine is trying to extract more money from Jon. For some, there is never enough money to be taken from the kindhearted and generous."
The couple married in 1986, before divorcing the following year (87).
This spurious conjecture is sadly far more interesting than How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, a film which effectively loses its audience inside of 10 minutes.
