A Sutton Place apartment owner has moved to evict the resident living in her two-bedroom co-op — her son.

The New York Post reported that Katherine Gregori has fiiled a lawsuit against her son, Michael Gregori, seeking to evict her son and recoup more than $400,000 in damages. She alleged Michael refused to move out of the apartment at 400 East 52nd Street and changed the locks, “effectively evicting” his 92-year-old mother. Katherine currently lives with relatives in Maryland.

Michael moved in five years ago when his wife, ballerina Eva Evdokimova, was battling cancer and he needed a place to live in the city, according to court documents. The suit alleges he became unable to care for his mother, forced her to relocate to live with family members and denied access to relatives who requested acces to the apartment on behalf of his mother.

But Michael said his mother suffers from dementia, and claimed that relatives seeking financial gain were likely behind the suit. “There’s some manipulation of an elderly person. It’s a story as old as time,” he said. [Post]
