Paul Anka Sues Estranged Wife for Defamation

2/2/2010 4:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Paul Anka has just raised the stakes in his bitter divorce -- he just filed a defamation case against his estranged wife, Anna Anka.

The defamation is interesting, but the backstory is riveting. Among other things, Paul claims Anna didn't marry Paul out of love -- he claims Anna's real intent "may have been to leverage Paul's celebrity status to get herself a television show." And a TV show she got -- "Swedish Hollywood Wives."

Paul says Anna was wacky, claiming one time during a concert tour in the Middle East she obsessed that her son would be "kidnapped and sold into slavery" and worried about "a major child porn industry in Israel and Ethan will be put into it."

Paul claims Anna's fits of anger were epic. As for the alleged defamation, Paul claims Anna gave interviews to the Swedish press, claiming she did not have a prenuptial agreement with Paul and that she had a right to half his money, adding, "You won't believe how much I'll get when this is over."

Paul says Anna falsely implied that he forged her name on the prenup and that he says is the defamation.

It is very sad. Paul Anka was aheart throb and when I was growing up we always thought he would marry Annette Funicello. Maybe life would have had a better turn for both of them, at least we boomers like to think so.

She's so young and he's so old....did Anka think a nice looking young woman like that would marry him for love and not for what she could get?

Very scary woman. If I were him, I wouldn't have shut my eyes with her in the house. She strikes me as a real wacko that could do anything and justify it.

Wow. What a nightmarish mess. Biggest tragedy is that he's got a child with her and will NEVER be able to completely rid his life of her. I hope he gets as far away from this cleary disturbed indvidiual as soon as he can. My thoughts are with Paul and his son, Ethan.

Its amazing me that more separated people don't kill each other nowadays [or mud sling each other to death] because it takes so long to get a divorce.

It should be simple no-fault procedure, each party files an asset form before they get married then divide any remaining assets after they got married [cash, property, etc]. Then factor in child support [which is now automatically done by every state] and be done with it.

The whole process should take less then 3 months. If you can't sell your house within 90 days you can still finalize everything else and issue a divorce decree! Then split the equity later.
