‘The Punisher’ actor, who filed a creditors' claim in court with the help of his lawyers, stated that he had given Heche a loan that totals upto $157K
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Anne Heche’s estate has now landed in the soup as late actress' ex-boyfriend ‘The Punisher’ actor Thomas Jane has approached the court with a plaint to receive $150,000 from her assets that she left behind to repay the loan she allegedly had taken from him before her death.
A report by RadarOnline states that the actor has filed a creditors' claim in court with the help of his lawyers. Jane claimed to have given Heche a loan that totals upto $157,000. He also states that to facilitate consistent repayment, the actress had agreed to pay $10,000 each month, starting from August 2021. He then noted that the late actress made the first two payments but defaulted thereafter. Heche and Jane dated for a year between 2019 to 2020.
The claims state that Jane is owed $149,106 as of November 2022. He’s also claiming the interest amount that must have accrued at a rate of $18.77 for each day. The amount that remains due is $137,000 in principal amount, $9,814.79 in interest, and $2,291.85 in late charges for a total of $149,106.04, the claim mentioned.
It has also been brought to light that Heche agreed to keep Jane informed of all her professional commitments so that he can keep tabs on sources of cash flow. She had committed to a 30% payment to Jane from any project that paid her more than $15,000. At the time of her death, Jane was quick to call her “one of the true talents of her generation” and also made it known that he offered his thoughts and prayers to the family.
Interestingly, Jane isn’t the only one to make claims of credit against the late actress. It was also previously reported that she owed $2 million to a woman named Lynne Mishele in damages to her home which Heche had crashed into in August. Her car crashed Mishele’s property and burst into flames, causing great damage to the woman's home. Mishele claimed that her home is now unlivable and that her property is completely destroyed.
The West Hills Hospital & Medical Center, the hospital that took care of Heche when she was pulled off of life support, has also made claims for money. They asserted that they are owed $1,838. Amid third parties claiming big chunks of Heche’s money, it was also learned that her son Homer and her ex-boyfriend James Tupper were fighting over control of her estate.
