The legal battle between the late Anne Heche's ex James Tupper and her older son Homer Laffoon continues, and the recent is when the former has objected to Homer's request for the court to "expand his authority" over his late mother's real estate mentioning the poor treatment of him and Heche's 13-year-old son, Atlas.
Per a People report, the documents filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court saw Tupper allege that Homer "has acted in a hostile manner" towards his half-brother and "has refused to communicate with him or his representatives at all." It also added "Further, Atlas has no confidence in [Homer]'s ability to meet his fiduciary obligations to Atlas," Furthermore, the papers also suggested that Homer had not inventoried her belongings.
"On behalf of Atlas, [Tupper] requests that prior to granting [Homer] any powers to take possession of the tangible personal property in the apartment, the Court compels [Homer] to provide an inventory of such personal property to Atlas so it can be determined whether [Homer] actually safeguards all of the Decedent's personal property in the future and conflict can be minimized," the documents read.
