Tanya Callau, the widow of late actor Alan Thicke has reportedly asked a judge to tell her husband's pop star son Robin and his brother Brennan to stop making 'baseless allegations' about her.
According to TMZ, the men reportedly filed legal documents asking a judge to block her from challenging the prenuptial agreement she signed with their father, four days before they got married and without legal representation.
Yet Tanya claims that she has no intention of challenging the agreement and says Robin, 40, and Brennan's papers have been issued simply to sully her name.

The men previously filed legal documents claiming she threatened to go to the tabloids if she didn't get what she wanted.
According to the pre-marital agreement, the 41-year-old is afforded rights to 25 percent of his personal effects, his ranch's furnishings, a $500,000 life insurance policy, all of his death benefits from pensions and union memberships and 40 percent of his remaining estate.

Alan died aged 69 of a ruptured aorta while playing hockey with his youngest son Carter, 19, in December.
So now Robin and Brennan are taking legal action 'in order to honor the memory of their father, protect his legacy, and prevent his testamentary intentions from being undermined by avarice and overreaching of his third wife, Tanya Callau' their lawyer told The Hollywood Reporter.
Attorney Alex Weingarten said: 'This is apparently despite the fact that Alan updated his trust from time to time, most recently in February 2016, and his sons say Tanya made no complaints about the prenup or estate plan at that time.

'Now that Alan has passed away, Tanya claims there are numerous problems with the trust and the Prenuptial Agreement.'
According to the petition, Alan's trust leaves his three sons Robin, Brennan and Carter equal shares of a Carpinteria ranch as well as 75 percent of his personal effects and 60 percent of his remaining estate.
Alan also provided that his wife could live at the ranch as long as she paid for expenses and maintenance.
'Tanya asserts that there is no chance the 'Prenup' could withstand legal challenge and that she has very significant community rights in the trust’s assets and rights of reimbursement with respect to improvements to the Ranch.
According to THR, Weingarten claims Alan's wife has 'threatened to make her claims fodder for 'tabloid publicity' unless the co-trustees agreed to participate in a mediation and succumb to her demands.'

The site also reports that Robin and Brennan are reportedly asking the court for instructions concerning the extent to which the trust's property is the actor's separate property.
They claim their father acquired the majority of his wealth long before meeting Tanya.
They also want the court's instructions on whether Tanya's challenge to the prenup is barred because she waived her community property rights when signing it.
Robin and Brennan's mother is Alan's first wife, Days of Our Lives actress Gloria Loring.
Carter's mother is Alan's second wife, Miss World 1990 Gina Tolleson.
Alan met Tanya in 1999 in Miami, where he was a celebrity host and she was a model and they were married in 2005.
In 2014 the couple, along with Carter, starred in a reality-sitcom hybrid titled Unusually Thicke and also featured in an episode of Celebrity Wife Swap in 2013.
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Robin for comment.
