Sues His Children Over Control Of Finances
Former Air Force
General Chuck Yeager -- the man with the "Right Stuff" -- is suing
his children. Yeager has filed a federal lawsuit saying his four
grown kids deliberately underfunded his pension, so they could keep
some of the money themselves.
The suit -- filed in Sacramento federal court last Thursday --
doesn't mention just how much Yeager thinks his kids stole from
"We think there are many, many hundreds of thousands of dollars
diverted from him," Yeager's lawyer, George A Roberts, told the
The whole thing apparently started shortly after Yeager, 83,
became engaged to 45-year old Victoria Scott D'Angelo in 2003.
Court documents say she was worried that Yeager was being left out
of the decision-making process when it came to his finances.
"Victoria felt they needed to ask for an accounting," Roberts
The younger Yeagers sued, saying D'Angelo was trying to alienate
them from their father, so she could get her hands on his estate.
At one point, Yeager's oldest daughter, Susan -- who's been
managing the family fortune -- was ordered in court to repay the
estate $915,000 for selling one of the general's properties without
his consent. She's now appealing that decision.
This latest in that long series of lawsuits accuses the four
Yeager children of conspiracy, negligent accounting practices, and
breach of fiduciary duty. So far... nobody involved is saying very
much about the case.
