Sumner Redstone Cancels Deposition In His Own Suit Due to Medical Problems

Sumner Redstone, the 93 year old titan of the entertainment and media industries, was forced to cancel his own deposition in a civil suit due to medical concerns. The law suit in question was brought by Redstone himself.

The New York Daily News is reporting that Sumner Redstone claimed that he could not give his deposition which was to take place yesterday because of a “strong medical recommendation.” No specifics were given.

Redstone is suing two of his former gal pals, Manuela Herzer and Sydney Holland, for $150 million. He claims that the two somehow took advantage of him to get the money and gifts when they were dating.

The defendants in the suit are claiming that it is actually the work of Redstone’s daughter Shari Redstone who is angry at her father for giving away so much of his fortune which she soon stands to inherit.

Sumner Redstone only recently stepped down from the leadership of Viacom, a company which he led for four decades.
