Paul Walker’s estate is suing the deceased actor’s acquaintance, Richard Taylor, over missing cars.

In a lawsuit filed on Thursday, June 11 in Los Angeles Superior Court, the man is accused of holding on to some of the movie star’s car collection and trying to extort his family, reported Ace Showbiz.

Paul’s father William Walker, who is also the executor of his estate, stated in the suit that Richard used to help Paul with his extensive car collection. Richard was said to be keeping seven of the vehicles including a Porsche and multiple BMWs for his own.

According to the legal documents, Richard’s associates removed the vehicles from Paul’s Valencia warehouse where they were stored less than 24 hours following the actor’s fatal car crash.

He has since been hiding the cars in an unknown location.

While the property was regularly used by multiple companies and people, including Richard, the star’s family argued that the guy had no right over the cars.

“Richard has intentionally and fraudulently concealed the existence and location of such vehicles from Plaintiff in order to wrongfully convert such vehicles for his own benefit,” read a statement in the suit obtained by The Hollywood Reporter.

The legal paper further claimed that Richard refused to give the vehicles back so that he could “extort money or other concessions” from the estate. In the suit, the family demanded Richard to return the cars and asked for some money for unspecified damages.
