Less than two years after his death, Tom Petty's daughters have slapped his widow with a lawsuit. According to documents obtained by The Blast, Adria and Annakim are seeking $5 million from Dana Petty for allegedly mismanaging Petty's business, Petty Unlimited. The duo claim that Dana has been withholding assets and diverting them to another company she set up. Problems have been brewing for some time now, with Dana filing documents in April to require a consensus decision instead of a majority decision for "significant" matters, so as to prevent the two daughters from teaming up against her. She is calling the latest lawsuit "misguided and meritless."
