The son of late hotelier Norman Peck is suing his stepmother for allegedly causing him to lose $300 million.

Ian Peck, whose father owned the Carlyle hotel before selling it for $130 million, claims Liliane Peck ruined his reputation and as a result caused him to lose a $100 million equity investment and a $200 million line of credit from a bank, the New York Post reported. The suit alleges that his stepmother defamed him when she called him “an incompetent and profligate beneficiary of his father’s largesse.”

Liliane sued her stepson after her husband’s death for more than $3 million, claiming that he lived a lavish lifestyle on his father’s dime, despite his struggling art business. She allegedly tried to serve Ian with the lawsuit at the church where both were attending Norman Peck’s memorial service.

The two are fighting over a $41 million fortune left by Norman when he died in April 2016. The estate consists of a $29 million real estate company that owns tenement buildings along the Upper East Side, $9 million in cash and securities, and an Upper East Side apartment valued at $3 million, court papers show. [NYP]Kathryn Brenzel
