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.

Mr. Anka and all seniors men, this is a good lesson to learn. Getting older is a normal process in our lives and we should accept it with grace. Wives get older as well as you all do, we have to be there for each other in good times and bad times specially when just the two of you are there and children are gone.
I am married to my husband for 47 years! getting older each day but together and love each other very much. Observing our grandchildren growing up is great, we travel as much as we can and planning to be together till the last days of our lives. My husband is a well respected professional and "opportunities" are always there for him, but he respect our marriage as well as I do.
It must be so sad for a wife been left by the husband just because he can not handle to get older.
Trophies half of their age are bad news and if you have money is even worst. How many of these men end up broke for the same reason. These trophies are not there for love, they are just for the money and fame if that is the case. All the sudden these seniors get sick and trophies are not going to take care of you... they pray for your death to get the money.
Mr. Anka got a very bad apple, rude to the max, no values and respect for anyone. The way she talks is sick and laugh about it is sicker. That woman It is just a body nothing else, an empty woman in every aspect and Mr. Anka got into the trap, he did not see her poor behaviors before? He did not hear her vulgarities? I guess he saw just a a body totally empty inside but he was in love... Sorry Mr. Anka, but I think your are paying for your bad actions toward your wife, a woman that probably look old but loved you, raised a nice family for you, put up with your work and never damaged your image.
With second wife, you are lucky to be alive today, that woman is a crazy one, she is the type to pull a gun on you and not just as a threat she can kill.
You be careful and never leave your son with that mother without supervision. She sound and act very sick. I have seen her videos...very bad.
I also think that Mr. Anka was looking for a trophy to extend his singer career, because I have seen pictures of him looking so proud when introducing that trashy wife.
As a singer you are great. I wish you happiness after all. I am sure you had a very bad time but your judgement was very poor and blind by youth. By the way she looks around 48 more or less. I guess for doing so much exercise and eating so well she does not look 38. I probably be wrong, but is what I see.



One of our sons, married a crazy one too, our lives as family were upside down, but now he is married to wonderful girl they are very happy and of course we adore her. What a difference.



Sorry I have been very honest Mr. Anka but you well know I am right.
Keep always in touch with your wonderful first wife. Will be impossible to get another one like her.



Be happy, but you must not be blind please!
