‘Ferris Bueller’ actress Edie McClurg is a victim of elder abuse, family claims

Published

on

The family of actress Edie McClurg has claimed that she’s a victim of elder abuse.

In court documents seen by The Post, the family of the “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” star — who lives in Los Angeles and suffers from dementia — alleged that she was abused by a man claiming to be a “long time” friend who reportedly attempted to take her out of California to marry her.

The documents — filed in the Superior Court of California — name the alleged abuser as Michael L. Ramos, who reportedly has been living at the 76-year-old’s LA home since 2017.

According to the documents, Ramos is unemployed and does not pay rent or any expenses and was able to “finagle” his way into McClurg’s life, reportedly attempting to move her out of California in order to marry her despite her dementia diagnosis.

The documents also claim Ramos allegedly “sexually assaulted” McClurg’s current caregiver, with a report filed with the LA Police Department. In addition, the caregiver was “worried” that Ramos “has or may be assaulting the Conservatee and that she may not even know that it is happening to her,” according to the court filings.

McClurg and Ramos “have never been involved [in] a romantic relationship,” with the caretaker now concerned he had been sexually abusing the actress.

They reported that he wanted to marry her out of state despite knowing she “lacked capacity” and was living in her home for “companionship,” which the judge of the conservatorship had allowed.

McClurg is under conservatorship and got protection from a judge — as per the documents — who ordered Ramos that he “may not enter into a valid marriage” with McClurg.

The lawyer for the conservatorship — which has been in place since 2019 — is now reportedly asking for an order to remove Ramos from the legal arrangement altogether.

McClurg’s family reportedly went to court in 2019 to ask for the legal arrangement, with claims she had been living with a male companion who was verbally abusive and tried to influence the handling of her estate by reportedly getting her to sign documents.

A 2019 neuropsychological evaluation report obtained by The Post said that McClurg “suffers from a progressive, unreversible neurodegenerative disorder.” The report outlined prior instances in which McClurg was allegedly taken advantage of, including by a married contractor who did work on her home and later reportedly “proceeded to live” in her home, claiming to be “her boyfriend.” The contractor’s wife allegedly “began calling the patient and even stalking the patient” before McClurg’s cousin, Angelique Cabral, intervened.

The evaluation also noted that McClurg allegedly was “befriended” by Ramos in 2012 or 2013.

Cabral was appointed her guardian and filed the emergency petition on July 14 to remove Ramos from McClurg’s home.

Ramos filed an objection to the emergency motion with his declaration, denying assaulting or sexually abusing either McClurg or her caretaker.

McClurg has more than 200 acting credits and has appeared in iconic films such as “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” and “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” and done voiceover work in “The Little Mermaid,” “A Bug’s Life,” “Cars” and “The Rugrats Movie.”

Hilaria Baldwin reveals she and Alec are ‘NOT OKAY’ following the tragic Rust shooting

Published

Hilaria Baldwin openly admitted that she and her husband, Alec Baldwin, are ‘not okay’ following tragic Rust shooting during a preview interview with Extra published Friday.

The yoga instructor, 38, stated tearfully, ‘We can’t be okay. No one is okay.’ The emotional statement came a little over one year since cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was fatally shot on set on October 21, 2021 due to a prop gun with live rounds that was accidentally discharged while in the hands of Baldwin, 64.

The mother of seven further expressed that, ‘It was and is a tragedy that nobody could ever have imagined.’

‘Not okay’: Hilaria Baldwin, 38, revealed to Extra that she and her husband, Alec Baldwin, 64, are ‘not okay’ following tragic Rust shooting 

Hilaria could be seen sitting in a chair with city skyscrapers sprawled out behind her through a large window amid the interview. 

The businesswoman donned an all-black ensemble, and carefully listened to the interviewer asking about how the Baldwin family was coping following the fatal shooting. 

Initially, the podcaster remained silent as she took in a deep breath, and then answered with her voice cracking, ‘We’re not okay.’ 

Shortly after the tragedy, Alec was involved in a ‘wrongful death’ lawsuit filed by Halyna’s family, which included her husband, Matthew. Earlier this year in October, both parties reached a settlement. 

The 30 Rock actor shared the news on Instagram, writing in the caption, ‘Throughout this difficult process, everyone has maintained the specific desire to do what is best for Halyna’s son.’

‘We are grateful to everyone who contributed to the resolution of this tragic and painful situation,’ he concluded. 

According to People, Matthew had released a statement of his own, ‘All of us believe Halyna’s death was a terrible accident. I am grateful that the producers and the entertainment community have come together to pay tribute to Halyna’s final work.’  

Also in October, the actor uploaded a tribute to Halyna on Instagram on the one-year anniversary of her tragic death, simply adding the caption, ‘One year ago today…’

Last month in November, Alec officially sued Rust crew members and the armorer for negligence and for supplying a prop gun loaded with ammunition. 

According to The New York Times, the lawsuit stated, ‘This tragedy happened because live bullets were delivered to the set and loaded into the gun.’

‘Though by no means comparable, Baldwin must live with the immense grief, and the resulting emotional, physical, and financial toll, caused by the fact that Cross-Defendants’ negligent conduct, assurances, and supervision put a loaded weapon in his hand,’ the lawsuit continued. 

‘And led him, Hutchins, and everyone else on set to believe that his directed use of the weapon was safe.’ Along with the cinematographer being fatally shot, a producer on set, Joel Souza, was also shot and injured. 

In December of last year, two months after the tragedy, Alec opened up during a candid interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. 

Alec had stated that he, ‘didn’t pull the trigger,’ while on set at Bonanza Creek Ranch in Sante Fe. ‘I would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger at them, never.’ 

In March of this year, he also followed legal papers in which he denied having any responsibility in the fatal shooting, according to The New York Post.

Following Hutchins’s tragic death on set of Rust last year, Hilaria has continuously shown support for her husband. 

In July, the podcast host shared a lengthy post where she emotionally expressed how ‘grateful’ she was for Alec. 

She told her husband to, ‘turn down the volume on the darkness and negativity,’ and that it was easier, ‘now more than ever to slander people and cherry pick and piece together strands taken out of context, ‘opinions’, or complete fabrications.’ 

Hilaria also added that ‘enemies’ were seeking to ‘destroy him.’ The star further penned, ‘I am the one that sees you in your dark moments…the human moments,’ and that, ‘So many love you, AB, we are here for you to lean on and feel safe.’ 

In August, she shared another heartfelt post to the actor, typing, ‘I am not going anywhere. Take all the time to be sad. I am here.’

During the preview interview with Extra, which airs in full-length on Monday, December 5, opened up briefly about their large family. 

‘I would say that we’re done, but I said we were done with six,’ Hilaria revealed as she held her two-month-old daughter. 

‘But Alec still has to go and do his part. So if he does not do his part, sometimes things can happen,’ the entrepreneur added.

'I am here': Hilaria penned, 'I am not going anywhere. Take all the time to be sad. I am here,' in an Instagram post to send her love and support to Alec
