One of Hollywood's pettier divorces in recent memory—that of Men in Trees star and intermittent lesbian Anne Heche from her cameraman husband Coley Laffoon—takes another childish nosedive today, with the soon-to-be-exes squabbling in court over various items of clothing, furniture, and accoutrements that have gone missing from the annoyingly designated rooms of their shared L.A. home:
In documents filed in L.A. Superior Court, Laffoon accuses Heche of taking a number of items - including the master bed and yoga-room rugs - from the L.A. home they share. (Under the terms of a judge's temporary order, they alternate use of the house while Heche is in Los Angeles.) [...]
Laffoon also alleges that when he returned to the home July 1 and found the furniture missing, he also "discovered that [Heche] had gone into my closet and ripped the buttons off of 19 of my shirts and removed some of my pants."
Heche denies any wrongdoing, insisting the items either never existed or were hers to begin with, and convincingly feigned complete ignorance when presented with a copy of the Xeroxed flyer still stapled to many telephone poles around the neighborhood, reading, "DIVORCE BLOWOUT YARD SALE AT CASA HECHE! YOGA-ROOM RUGS, POKER TABLE, MY USELESS EX-HUSBAND'S PANTS, BAG O' BUTTONS. EVERYTHING MUST GO!!!"
