'Lymelife' Director Derick Martini Sued by His Own Dad
Director Derick Martini has been slapped with a $5 million lawsuit from his own father in a dispute over the ownership of a New York building. The filmmaker, best known for the Martin Scorsese-produced coming of age comedy "Lymelife", is accused by his dad Frederick of going behind his back to steal ownership of a Manhattan property he had taken interest in.
Martini Sr. claims his son forged a copy of the deed, giving him half-ownership of the place, according to the New York Post. The father and son are now set to face off over the building in court.
Derick is the brother of Steven Martini with whom he co-wrote his directorial debut "Lymelife". His TV credits, in the meantime, include the Jennifer Lopez-produced television series "South Beach" and a remake of Alex Raymond's "Flash Gordon".
