Docs: Robert Indiana had $13M in bank as house crumbled

ROCKLAND, Maine (AP) — Court documents indicate pop artist Robert Indiana had $13 million in the bank even as his house sank into disrepair before his death.

Documents filed Wednesday by Indiana’s estate allege that aide Jamie Thomas was not a selfless caregiver. It contends Thomas “improperly lined his pockets,” claimed as gifts more than 100 of Indiana’s works, and allowed Indiana to live in “squalor and filth.”

The artist whose “LOVE” series is instantly recognizable worldwide died at his home on Vinalhaven Island on May 19, 2018. He was 89.

The documents, filed in Superior Court, were in response to Thomas’ lawsuit seeking $2 million for legal fees. Thomas and the estate are being sued by a company that held the copyright for Indiana’s “LOVE.” There was no immediate comment from the caretaker’s attorney.
