Dane is claiming Corgan was negligent in handling “dangerous” eucalyptus trees on his property. Apparently, one of the trees crashed into Dane’s home during a storm last year, forcing Dane’s wife Rebecca Gayheart to evacuate their flooding property and avoid contact with live high-voltage wires while she was nine months pregnant.
Corgan tells TMZ, “I was horrified when I learned about the tree falling during what was a massive storm, a storm with winds strong enough to uproot a 50 foot tree by its base! Thankfully no one was injured.”
“[The lawsuit is] a shame … because [Eric and Rebecca] are nice people,” Corgan adds.
The website reports Dane and Gayheart are suing for “nuisance, negligence, and injunctive relief,” asking for unspecified damages.
