The family of actress Edie McClurg has claimed she is a victim of elder abuse.
In court documents seen by The Post, the family “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” star – who lives in Los Angeles and suffers from dementia – said she was abused by a man who claims to be a “longtime” friend and who reportedly tried to take her out of California to marry her.
Documents filed in California Superior Court identify the alleged abuser as Michael L. Ramos, who has reportedly lived in the 76-year-old’s Los Angeles home since 2017.
According to the documents, Ramos is unemployed and doesn’t pay rent or any expenses, so he was able to “finish” his way into McClurg’s life by trying to get her out of California so he could marry her despite her dementia diagnosis.
The documents also state that Ramos allegedly “sexually assaulted” McClurg’s current caregiver, filing a report with the Los Angeles Police Department. In addition, the guardian was “concerned” that Ramos “assaulted or might assault the conservator and that she may not even know this was happening to her,” court documents state.
McClurg and Ramos “were never involved [in] romantic relationship,” he sexually abused the actress with a now concerned supervisor.
They reported that he wanted to marry her out of state, even though he knew she had “lack of options” and was living in her home for “friendship,” which was allowed by a conservatorship judge.
McClurg is a conservator and received protection from a judge, according to the documents, who told Ramos that he “cannot enter into a valid marriage” with McClurg.
An attorney for the conservatorship, which has been in place since 2019, is now reportedly seeking an order to completely remove Ramos from the legal settlement.
It is reported that in 2019 McClurg’s family sued for a legal settlement, saying she lived with a man who was verbally abusive and tried to influence her estate management, reportedly by forcing her to sign documents.
in 2019 A neuropsychological evaluation report obtained by The Post states that McClurg “suffers from a progressive, irreversible neurodegenerative disorder.” The report details previous instances where McClurg was allegedly taken advantage of, including a married contractor who worked on her home and then reportedly “lived” in her home, claiming to be “her boyfriend.” The contractor’s wife allegedly “began calling the patient and even harassing the patient” until McClurg’s cousin, Angelique Cabral, intervened.
The assessment also noted that McClurg allegedly “befriended” Ramos in 2012 or 2013.
Cabral was appointed her guardian and on July 14. filed an emergency petition to remove Ramos from the McClurg home.
Ramos filed an objection to the emergency motion with his affidavit denying assaulting or sexually abusing McClurg or her supervisor.
McClurg has more than 200 acting credits and has appeared in such iconic films as Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and “Planes, Trains and Cars” and performed voice work in the films “The Little Mermaid”, “The Life of a Bug”, “Cars” and “The Clothes Movie”.
