An ex-girlfriend of Sumner Redstone is suing his daughter, Shari, alleging she hired a private investigator and paid members of Redstone’s staff to spy on her in an effort to drive her away from the 93-year-old billionaire.

In documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday, Sydney Holland sued Shari Redstone and several members of her father’s staff for violation of privacy and inducing breach of contract. She asked for Shari Redstone to pay “punitive and exemplary damages.”

The complaint was in response to the lawsuit that Sumner Redstone’s legal team filed in October against Holland and another his former companions, Manuela Herzer, to reclaim the more than $150 million that the women received from the aging media mogul.
