E! News has obtained the complaint against the 53-year-old ventriloquist, filed by Marie in federal court on Jan. 16, which states that, “In a final desperate attempt to stop Defendant Terry Fator-Son’s continued abuse, bullying and harassment as documented in this lawsuit, Plaintiff Marie Fator Sligh–Mother prays the court will terminate any and all parental ties and relationship she has with Defendant Terry Fator.”
According to the court docs, Marie’s complaint is over her son’s “actions that are detrimental to the health and well-being of” Marie.
The docs also allege that Terry has used “his wealth and the legal system to defame, bully, torment, harass and intimidate Plaintif to obstruct and prevent his Mother from investigating the death of her daughter in Defendant’s home; and for refusing to work with his Mother to resolve their problems privately thereby causing his elderly Mother extreme fear, humiliation, anxiety, embarrassment and financial difficulty.”
“Prior to her death, Defendant-Son had cut his sister out of his life in August 2011, refusing all contact with her until December 2014,” the docs state. “On December 7, 2014, Defendant-Son called Plaintiff-Mother and said he thought it was time he re-establish a relationship with his sister and let her back in his life.”
Deborah allegedly move in with Terry in May 2015.
The complaint adds, “Plaintiff-Mother had reason to be concerned about her daughter’s death.”
