The widow of guitarist Glenn Frey is being accused of refusing to turn over information about his cut of the Eagles profits.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Cindy Frey is allegedly dragging her feet on handing over confidential contracts between Glenn and the Eagles.
Cindy sued the hospital and doctor where Glenn was being treated for wrongful death. She is seeking damages for lost profits that she believed he would have earned if he were alive.
In newly filed documents, Mount Sinai Hospital and Dr. Steven Itzkowitz point out Cindy is trying to get damages for lost earnings relating to performance fees and income derived from merchandise.
They have demanded documents between Glenn and the Eagles to see what his cut is for concert and music profits. The hospital and doctor want to see the contracts before the case can move forward.
The defendants claim Cindy has failed to hand over the information, despite being served.
They want a judge to force Cindy to turn over the documents ASAP.
Glenn Frey passed away in January 2016 from complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis, and pneumonia.
In her lawsuit, Frey’s widow claimed that he was under the care of Mount Sinai and Dr. Itzkowitz from October 19, 2015 to November 2015. She claims they failed to “promptly and properly treat [Frey’s] ulcerative colitis and associated symptoms and diseases of the bowel.”
“As a result of the foregoing acts of negligence,” the suit read, “Glenn Frey was rendered sick, lame and disabled, suffered injuries, pain, mental anguish, was compelled to seek medical care and attention, incurred expenses thereof, and was permanently injured and disabled until the time of his death.”
Cindy’s lawsuit is seeking unspecified damages.
Mount Sinai Hospital and Dr. Steven Itzkowitz have denied all allegations of wrongdoing. They moved to have the lawsuit dismissed claiming that “the injuries of the plaintiff were caused in whole or in part by the culpable conduct of the plaintiff.”
