Tanya Callau is in a nasty battle over the estate of her late husband Alan Thicke. Singer Robin Thicke and his brother, Brennan Thicke, filed a petition Tuesday asking the court to uphold an agreement the beloved TV star and his third wife signed before getting married in 2005. She claims the prenup is now invalid so she can have access to more of her late husband’s possessions and ranch.
Callau and Thicke two met in Miami while the “Growing Pains” star was here for an appearance. Callau visits the Magic City on occasion for events and actually spent some time here in her youth. She attended Hollywood Hills High School, Class of ’93.
She told The Miami Herald back in 2015 that she met Thicke at a gala for the Miami Marlins, known back then as the Florida Marlins.
“Alan was hosting; I was modeling. The rest is history!” said Callau at the time.

According to the L.A. Times, her lawyer Adam Streisand disputes the brothers’ claims.
“Tanya Thicke has never threatened to take private family matters public and she never has,” read a statement. “It is clear that Alan’s sons have chosen this distasteful public smear tactic to bully Tanya, by stirring up the tabloid media, filing a bogus lawsuit and refusing family mediation.”
“My clients made every effort to resolve this without the need for going to court,” the men’s attorney Alex Weingarten said Tuesday in a statement.
Alan Thicke died in December 2016 of a sudden heart attack. He must be rolling in his grave right now.
