You never know what kind of celebrity news is going to wait for you when you wake up and this is twice as true when the person involved is Christian Slater. Don’t get us wrong, we love Christian Slater, but there is no denying that his career and his personal life have been a bit erratic these last few decades that we’ve had the pleasure of knowing him.
And today, we are finding out that the famous actor is getting sued. By whom? By none other than his own father, a man called Thomas Knight Slater who is better known (only slightly better) as Michael Dawkins, an actor who had roles on a few TV shows and a few minor movie appearances.
The reason why he is suing his own son is that Christian, apparently, said that he (the father, not the son) suffers from manic-depressive schizophrenia (which is not a thing, btw, it’s either one or the other), which according to him, ruined any prospects of a career in his autumn years.
The size of the defamation lawsuit? Upwards of $20 million.
