Dreyfuss Sues His Dad
JAWS star RICHARD DREYFUSS is suing his father and uncle over an unpaid loan.
The actor filed suit in Los Angeles on Friday (08Aug08), claiming his family members owe him a whopping $870,000 (GBP435,000).
In the documents, obtained by TMZ.com, Dreyfuss claims his father Norman and Uncle Gilbert asked him to help them save a family business and he agreed.
That was back in 1984.
The actor loaned them the money they needed, but has never been able to get it back. And when he recently asked about the repayment, Dreyfuss claims his uncle told him, "You can't get it."
So the Jaws star is showing his teeth and suing for the $870,000 loan, interest and punitive damages.
