On-screen, Growing Pains actor Alan Thicke was beloved for his endearing role as a father and off-screen, he was equally a great dad to his 3 sons. Sadly, at 69, Alan Thicke died after an aortic tear led to a rupture 3 hours later.

But as the world said goodbye to the amazing actor, another battle brewed between Thicke’s sons and his beloved 41-year-old widow Tanya Callau Thicke.

Robin Thicke and brothers protected father’s estate from widow

In contrast to Alan Thicke’s beautiful legacy, his death ushered in a dramatic family fight as his older sons took his wife to court with his vast estate at the center of the tension.

Explaining their motivations for going to court, Brennan and Robin Thicke shared that they had to honor their dad and protect his legacy.

According to Alex Weingarten, the litigator representing Thicke’s sons, the “avarice and overreaching” Tanya asserts that she has more rights than her husband Alan intended.

Now that Alan is dead, Tanya claims there are numerous problems with the Trust and the Prenuptial Agreement.

Before her marriage to Alan Thicke, Tanya had signed a prenuptial agreement that stipulated the ownership of assets when the marriage ended.

With the case, the brothers sought clarification on whether Tanya’s challenge to the prenup should be barred since she waived her rights on signing it. At the point of signing the prenup, Tanya declared a $40,000 ring as her sole asset, alongside $3,700 in debts against Thicke’s $14 million in assets.

According to attorney Adam Streisand, Alan Thicke’s sons chose to smear Tanya’s name through “tabloid media, filing a bogus lawsuit, and refusing family mediation.”

Tanya was set to get 40% ($15 million) of Alan Thicke’s estate

The Blast reported that Tanya Callau Thicke was set to benefit with 40% of Thicke’s estate, valued at more than $15 million while the 3 sons get 20% each. Considering the vast wealth involved in the case, it’s almost understandable why the sons chose to go to court.

The case revealed that there are blurred lines between inheritance and spousal rights when settling a deceased family member’s estate. Do you think the sons were justified in going after Alan Thicke’s widow in court?
