William Shatner Sued for $170M by Man Claiming to Be His Son

William Shatner has been hit with a $170 million lawsuit by a man claiming to be his biological son.

The 85-year-old legendary actor is being sued by a radio host named Peter Sloan, who says his birth mother, the late Canadian actress Kathy McNeil, had an affair with William, according to Page Six.

Peter was given up for adoption at five days old. He met William in 1984 on the set of TJ Hooker and says the actor “admitted he was [his] father.” He claims he was later contacted by a rep for the actor asking not to go public and that William was “totally denying paternity at this point.”

Peter later decided to host a local CBS radio show using the name Peter Shatner and he says the actor successfully had his Twitter page taken down and his IMDbPro page removed. He is now seeking $30 million in compensatory damages, $90 million in punitive damages, and $50 million for pain and suffering.

    This guy is clearly trying to extort Shatner and I don’t get how people are even allowed to make lawsuits this ridiculous. Even if all of this is true, which seem unlikely, he hardly deserves $170 million dollars. Shatner not recognizing him as his son is hardly illegal and I seriously doubt getting his twitter/imdb page taken down cost him $30 million for compensatory damages, let alone the extra $140 million.
