Christian Slater's Father is Suing Him for $20 Million

Christian Slater is being sued by his own father.

According to People, the 46-year-old Mr. Robot star’s dad, actor Michael Hawkins, claims his son “ruined” his acting career and he’s seeking at least $20 million.

Christian reportedly said his father was “suffering from manic-depressive schizophrenia” during a December 2015 interview.

Michael said “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.”

He’s also accusing his ex-wife Mary Jo Slater of a number of things, including slander, libel, and defamation of character.
