Asterix & Obelix Creator is Suing Daughter Claiming Psychological Abuse

asterixFrench comic book creator Albert Uderzo, one of the creators of the Asterix and Obelix comic book series, is suing his daughter and son-in-law in a bizarre family story surrounding the elder Uderzo’s literary estate.

In the lawsuit, Uderzo is claiming that he experienced “psychological violence” from the pair. According to a report in The Guardian, the story has a colored history. Back in 2007, his daughter Sylvie and her husband Bernard worked for the publishing company that published the book series. They were fired and a year later Uderzo sold his half of the company to Hachette Livre. In 2011, Sylvie filed a suit claiming that her father was being taken advantage of by people around him.

Here is more from The Guardian:

However this week, Uderzo issued a statement that his daughter was “introducing and extending legal procedures that have no foundation.” He rejected the claim that he was in a “state of fragility”, and said that he is being harassed.
