Well, this SUCKS.

Christian Slater revealed to Interview mag last summer that his father Thomas Knight Slater (stage name Michael Hawkins) greatly suffers from manic-depressive schizophrenia, but that the two are slowly becoming closer as father and son.

Well, sounds like that didn’t happen.

Nowadays, they aren’t playing catch at all- unless it’s with legal docs, because Thomas Knight Slater is suing his famous son for at least $20 million dollars.

According to People, Hawkins claims Slater and his ex-wife Mary Jo Slater “ruined” his acting career by labeling him as mentally ill. The accusations include slander, libel, defamation of character, intentional interference with prospective economic advantage, invasion of privacy, as well as intentional infliction of emotional distress. AND Hawkins demands a jury trial.

The documents add:

“This publicly embarrassing disclosure, according to proof, has ruined his career in the stage, motion picture and television industry which he has never recovered from.”

Woah. I mean, if it’s true that sucks. But also- it seems like a complicated situation overall. It’ll be interesting to see how all of this proceeds…
