Having starred in Jaws and Close Encounters of the Third Kind and What About Bob? and everything, you'd think veteran actor Richard Dreyfuss would have put aside a few bucks, by and by. So either he invested quite unwisely or he just hates his old man. Because Dreyfuss is suing his father and his uncle for $870,000. Okay, no human is going to let nearly $900 grand slip away from him, but Dreyfuss is suing over a loan he made to his pops in 1984. And seeing how Richard is 60, his dad must be like... Well, quite lucky to even be alive. Damn, Richard.
"Roughly 24 years later, Dreyfuss says that loan - and interest - remains unpaid. In his lawsuit filed Friday, Dreyfuss says his uncle, Gilbert Dreyfuss, has repeatedly refused to turn over records that would show its financial status.
"Phone and e-mail messages left for Gilbert Dreyfuss were not immediately returned. A woman who answered the phone at an address registered to Dreyfuss' father, Norman, said he could not be reached there.
"Dreyfuss alleges his uncle and father, Norman Dreyfuss, have acted with 'fraud' and 'malice.' He is seeking a repayment of the loan, plus interest and punitive damages." [Access Hollywood]
