Buzz Aldrin's children are reportedly fighting back against the famed astronaut's claims that they stole money from him.

The Blast has reported that Andrew and Janice Aldrin believe that some prior mental health evaluations of Aldrin will support their case.

The battle began after his kids petitioned to take control of Aldrin's finances earlier this year.

They asked a judge to name them as his legal guardians because he is suffering from alleged memory loss and confusion.

But Aldrin then filed a lawsuit against Andrew and Janice and his former business manager contending that they stole money from him and are slandering his legacy.

The 88-year-old space legend, who has wed three times and has an eye for the ladies, also claimed that they were stopping him from getting married again!

According to documents obtained by The Blast, on July 13 Aldrin's kids Andrew and Janice Aldrin filed three reports with the court detailing prior mental health examinations on their dad.

The reports, all conducted by separate healthcare workers, are part of a separate guardianship case the kids filed against their father Aldrin, who was the second man to walk on the moon behind Neil Armstrong, who died in 2012 at age 82.

When that case was filed it automatically triggered a committee of health professionals to be appointed to determine if Aldrin needed a guardianship.

Andrew and Janice want the court to review the health findings and apply that knowledge to the suit their father filed against them for allegedly misusing his credit cards and transferring funds without permission.

Aldrin claimed in legal docs that his children accused him of allegedly suffering from dementia caused by Alzheimer's disease. Buzz also said they erroneously claimed he had memory loss, delusions, paranoia and confusion.

The Apollo 11 legend has admitted to battling depression and alcoholism in the past, but has been sober for almost 40 years.

Aldrin told National Geographic two years ago that he has had periods of isolation, "If, occasionally, my mind gets the sense that the world around me is not doing what I'd like it to do, I may disappear for a day or even a week. That's something I've needed to deal with."

He wants his son removed as a trustee and not be in charge of his finances, the legal docs show.

No rulings have been made since the judge received the report, according to The Blast.
