Christian Slater's Father Threatened to Kill Him and His Mother, She Alleges in New Legal Documents

Originally posted 04/19/2016 06:10PM

Christian Slater has filed a motion to strike his father's defamation lawsuit against him.

In legal documents obtained by PEOPLE, Christian's mother Mary Jo Slater issued a declaration in support of her son's motion to strike the lawsuit, detailing claims of her ex-husband Thomas Knight Slater's diagnosis with manic-depressive schizophrenia and threw her into traffic when she was five months pregnant with Christian. (Thomas, 80, is suing his son for at least $20 million, claiming he "ruined" Thomas' acting career because the Mr. Robot star said his father was "suffering from manic-depressive schizophrenia" in a December 2015 interview – years after Thomas' last credited role on IMDb, a small part in the 1988 action film Midnight Run.)

In the documents, Mary Jo, 70, claims Thomas was taken to the hospital sometime around the year 1972 after threatening to kill her and Christian, who was 3 years old at the time. According to the papers Thomas was diagnosed as "a paranoid schizophrenic" and was kept in a straitjacket when she would visit him at the hospital. Mary Jo claims Christian was made aware of his father's diagnosis.
