He forced them to sell a family restaurant...
TMZ reports that Ted Levine is being sued by his brothers and sister, who claim he's a "sadistic" and "cruel bully" that forced them to auction of their BBQ restaurant in Holly Ridge, North Carolina for only part of what it's worth.
Mick Levine said that they agreed to sell it after their parents' deaths, but Ted made demands and harrassed Mick in emails. At one point he called him a "crazy f***ing c**t." Mick said that Ted promised to "fix it so his family members see nothing" and made them sell the restaurant at an auction. Mick blames Hollywood for exploiting Ted's mental illness.
He said: "Hollywood only profits from his illness. It's more grist for the entertainment mill. They rattle Ted's chain and then roll the cameras. Ted then portrays another sociopath or psychopath."
The restaurant is worth $554,000 but was sold on Wednesday for $325,000.
