Nashville RV bomber Anthony Quinn Warner had been sued by his own mother over their family home — which he tried to offload to avoid giving it to her, according to a report.
The 63-year-old suicide bomber and his mother, Betty Christine Lane, got into the ugly legal spat following the September 2018 death of Warner’s brother, Steven, the Daily Mail said, citing court records.
The brother, 62, had been given the family home after their 78-year-old father, Charles B. Warner, died in 2011. But upon his own death, Steven did not have a will to determine who would get the home, the report said.
The 85-year-old mom — who had divorced the boys’ father before his death — insisted the family home legally belonged to her.
Loner Warner had already claimed the $250,000 home for himself in an August 2018 quitclaim deed transfer — fraudulently acting as attorney-in-fact and paying just $10, his mother said in the lawsuit, according to the Daily Mail.
“When defendant signed the quitclaim deeding the real property to himself, this was an act of self-interest and as such, violated his duty to act in the best interest of his brother,” the lawsuit reportedly said.
The following month, however, a circuit court judge ruled that the mother should have had control of her late son’s estate — and the family home.
Swing finally transferred the property back to Lane in a quitclaim on July 23 last year, property records show.
Lane’s court battle against her son was finally dismissed on Oct. 25 — exactly two months before he blew himself up in his RV parked in a historic street in downtown Nashville.
His mother, who still lives in the house they battled over, told the Daily Mail that she could “not talk about” Warner.
She also posted signs threatening to call the police if anyone knocked on her door.
“We are not going to speak to you,” her daughter Teresa Wardrop, who was at the home Sunday afternoon, told a Mail reporter.
Swing, who has family in Knoxville and studied business and marketing at the University of Tennessee, has refused to discuss her relationship with Warner despite being gifted two homes by him.
