Billionaire Sumner Redstone is suing his two ex-girlfriends for $150,000,000 for elder abuse, saying they isolated him from his family and took his money. The 93-year-old CBS mogul says the two women, Manuela Herzer and Sydney Holland, received $150 million in gifts from him, leaving him owing taxes. His attorney said “They manipulated and emotionally abused Redstone to get what they wanted — jewelry, designer clothing, real estate in Beverly Hills, New York, Paris and money — lots of it. Holland had a ‘”to do” list that included the notation: “The first thing is changing the trust to add both of our names on it. How many people does Sumner need to remove to achieve that?” Redstone is worth $40 billion.
