They claimed that Kevin and Linda were incapable of operating their boat because alcohol, drugs, or fatigue impaired their judgment.

As Radar reported, Kevin appeared virtually in a Canadian courtroom in July and told the judge under oath that his wife "might have" had a cocktail before driving their boat that night.

Following the crash, Linda's breath allegedly smelled like alcohol, but a female officer testified that Mr. Wonderful's wife told her "someone had made her a drink when she returned from the accident."

In any case, Linda isn't the only person in the family with legal woes.

“It appears that someone has been using my name and likeness without my knowledge, permission, or consent. I’ve never heard of any of these purported companies and have never conducted business with any of the plaintiffs who filed this suit. Obviously, I want to get to the bottom of it too, as my rights have been violated. We will makes sure that the bad actors are held accountable," he said in a statement via his lawyer.
