It’s been three months since Anne Heche tragically died in a car accident, and since then, there’s been drama with her estate. Anne died without a will, and her oldest son, 20-year-old Homer Laffoon, whose father is Coley Laffoon, filed for control of her estate and was later granted “expanded powers as the special administrator” of her estate. Anne’s ex-boyfriend James Tupper, who is the father of her youngest child, 13-year-old Atlas Heche Tupper, has been trying to put a stop to Homer’s legal moves on Anne’s estate, claiming that Homer “broken several promises to his half-brother by not providing him with an inventory list and pictures of the tangible personal property.” Anne’s estate has also been sued for $2 million by Lynne Mishele, the woman who lived in the house that Anne crashed into. On top of all of that, Anne’s estate has been sued by her ex Thomas Jane. Thomas alleges he gave Anne a loan last year that she stopped paying, and now, dead or alive, he wants the rest of his cash.
Thomas and Anne dated for a few years beginning in 2019. Thomas did say some very nice words about Anne after her passing, mainly because if he said, “Y’all know she owes me money, right?” it would have been in poor taste. But now that Thomas has had some time to reconsider whether or not he wants to become that guy, People reports Thomas, who appeared on HBO’s Hung with Anne, loaned her $157K in August of 2021, a loan she said she would pay back over time. And Thomas wants to be paid now:
In the new court filing obtained by PEOPLE, lawyers for Jane — who was first romantically linked to Heche in 2019 — alleged that he loaned the actress $157,000 and is still owed $149,106.04. He is also seeking $18.77 per day in growing interest.
Jane claimed that Heche…previously agreed to repay the loan in $10,000 monthly installments beginning in August 2021. However, he alleged that she did not “make any further payments” after the first two installments, the claim states.
Jane, 53, claimed he is now owed $137,000 in principal, $9,814.79 in interest (as of Nov. 8) and $2,291.85 in late charges, according to the court filing.
As part of their agreement, Jane alleged that Heche was supposed to keep him notified of upcoming professional work and he would receive payment of 30% of her income when she received payment of more than $15,000.
If Thomas’ life has transformed drastically into suing a dead woman for money he might never get, he must also have fallen on hard times, especially considering his latest film Dig has a 17% score on Rotten Tomatoes. It may be time for Thomas to stop beating around the bush and head back down to Santa Monica Blvd for a reboot of his days trickin’ for tacos. I’m sure he would make up that $150K deficit in no time!
