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.

From what I heard Paul and his first wife Anne divorced back in 2000. He didn't meet Anna Yeager until 2004.

Paul has no money, he tours constantly because he needs the cash. He supports almost all of his children still and has a huge support payment to the first wife.

Make no mistake, Paul is no sane person himself. Anna will not have a hard time finding people to testify that Paul has a huge anger problem himself.

I would say that I dont like old men marrying an younger women half of there age, but even old people deserves to seek love and if they find it to a younger woman then we cant do anything about that.And of this Paul and Ana case,I would say that Ana is a really bitch! If you guys seen her swedish tvshow you wont belive her attitude, Im kind of suprise that the relationship has lasted several years, she is really a gold d`ger and take this...she said in an interview that HER BODY IS ONE OF SEXIEST BODY IN HOLLYWOOD, OH MY GOD I almost throw up. And they way she handle her maids is not just seem right,for her it looks like they are animal working for her and that they have to obey and be scared to her or else they will not get any animal food, will Ana,those servants of your are more human than you, and never the less they are more beautiful people with lots of respect inside, let us wait when this case is finish,and perhaps you wont even fit as Paul`s maid, and for you Paul, make sure you will get the custody of ethan or what ever your kid name,because if you will let him stay with his mother,it is exactly thesame you killed your own child....thas how worsed the woman you married...and pls. dont give her even 1 dollar of your money because whe is not even worth a dollar!!!

I feel really sorry for Paul Anka getting into this mess... This
woman is really, really scary! In fact I think she is mentally ill.
We have all (swedish inhabitants) been watching - with a hardened
smile on our faces - the reality show "Swedish Hollywood wifes" were she has been making a complete fool of herself. She thinks she has a huge tv-career in front of her... sorry to say but we are all here in Sweden really tired of her and her behavior... I think most of the people here thinks that she needs psychiatric medical care. The tv-company and the journalists have been using her ilness one step to far, and I think they are aware of that now. She had a Christmas show on TV on December 24 - that was a huge flop - only 110.000 viewers. If you are interested in watching her madness on tv you can search for her name on youtube. I hope that Paul Anka gets custody of both of the children since she is not a appropiate mother. Good luck Paul, Ethan and Ellie.

I wonder if Paul knows what she has been talking about on the TV here
in Sweden on the reality show "Hollywood wifes"... At one time when
she was with Paul at a performance were he was greeting his fans, she
talked into the camera and said "look at all this fat and ugly people
that are Pauls fans"... how can she talk in such manor about other
people and into a camera that will be broadcasted to millions of
people... On another occasion she chased her former husband, the
father of her daughter, with her car. It was a rendition of her
daughter after she, little Ellie, had visited her father. The father
was stressed over that Anna came with a full film crew in tow, he
then drove off to the nearest police station to make the handover
there. Anna sat and yawned and cried out all the profanity she knew
in front of the camera. When she arrived at the police station, she
rushed in and tore hold of Ellie and pulled her out of the police
station, while screaming and yelling that her ex-husband is an idiot,
that Ellie should not listen to him etc etc... How on earth can she
behave in such manor in front of her little daughter. If you fancy to
look at this insanity you can take a look at YouTube.

I like the fact that Anka refers to Anna as his personal trainer. I'm not sure where you are from Paul, but in the United States, we would refer to her as a high priced call girl. Personal trainer. That's a good one. The only muscle she ever tried to strengthen was your 'love muscle".
