The former business manager for Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin said she is being unfairly defamed in a lawsuit accusing her and two of his children of misusing his credit cards and slandering him.
Christina Korp also blamed people who began to “exert undue influence” on Mr Aldrin. She said in a tweet that they drove a wedge between the former astronaut, his children and herself.
She told ABC’s Good Morning America she is saddened by this.
The lawsuit, filed earlier this month in a Florida state court, came a week after Mr Aldrin’s children Andrew and Janice filed a petition claiming he suffers from memory loss, delusions, paranoia and confusion.
The second man to walk on the surface of the moon in 1969, Mr Aldrin told ABC that he is feeling great and “there’s less confusion and more clarity” over the dispute.
He added “family is forever” and he’s “forever trying to patch it up”.
