Apollo 11 moonwalker Buzz Aldrin is suing two of his children and a business manager, accusing them of misusing his credit cards, transferring money from an account and slandering him by saying he has dementia.
In the lawsuit filed earlier this month in a Florida state court, Aldrin asks a judge to remove his son, Andrew, from control of his financial affairs, social media accounts and several nonprofit enterprises.READ MORE: Protest Crackdown Faces Constitutional Challenge
Aldrin says his daughter, Janice, did not act in his financial interests, and he accuses his manager of fraud.
Aldrin was a member of the Apollo 11 crew which landed the first two humans on the moon. Aldrin joined Neil Armstrong on the lunar surface in 1969.
In a statement, the Aldrin children say they’re saddened by the “unjustifiable” lawsuit.MORE NEWS: Emancipation Day, Juneteenth Eyed For Holidays
