Annette Sinclair Sued Her Then-Husband Seger; What Had Happened?
A few years after their divorce, Annette filed a case against her former husband Bob with a claim of physical abuse and a false promise to remarry her. At the time when they separated, Sinclair was pregnant and she claimed in court that her ex-husband has pressurized her for an abortion.
Regarding the issue, her lawyer Gordon Gold claimed in a court that his client Annette’s ex-spouse Seger “made her life a ″living hell″ by pressuring her to have an abortion one month after their November 1988 divorce.”
The attorney Gold further said,
″He was toying with her emotionally, ″He was living with her part of the time, talking about a reconciliation, using her basically as a pawn. … When he didn’t want to use her, he discarded her without any thought of her emotional well-being”.
Her attorney also stated that Annette was beaten up by her ex-spouse outside a Los Angeles nightclub in January 1989. As a result, the Jon actress suffered from mental illness and was hospitalized for six months.
Though Sinclair knocked on the court door with a strong claim, the case was later dismissed with the point of Seger’s attorney T. Patrick Freydl. Fredyl’s statement was:
decisions on birth control made by consenting partners are outside the court’s jurisdiction and there is no right to collect damages for a broken promise to marry.
