In an interview with Style Like U, the 31-year-old admitted:

We knew there had to be more to the story.
Yesterday we told you that Christian Slater was being sued for $20 million by his father Michael Hawkins — who claimed the Mr. Robot star "ruined" his career by saying in an interview last year that Hawkins was "suffering from manic-depressive schizophrenia."
Slater's father (real name Thomas Knight Slater) appeared on the soap opera Ryan's Hope in the '70s and his last credited project on IMDB was the 1988 action film Midnight Run.
A source close to the family says Hawkins has a history of personal struggle:
"His father has had his troubles. Christian has done what he can for him financially by supporting him for many years, but eventually had to distance himself because of his erratic behavior."
"It's been a long and difficult situation. The lawsuit is baseless."
Ugh. This is so sad.
We hope this all gets sorted out soon…

As we reported, Christian Slater revealed to Interview mag last summer that his father Thomas Knight Slater (stage name Michael Hawkins) greatly suffers from manic-depressive schizophrenia, a condition which affected their relationship and his father's career as an actor. However, the 46-year-old said that the two had been "able to begin to build a better bridge" after Hawkins wanted to reconnect.
Well now things seem to have taken a turn as poppa Slater is suing his famous son for at least $20 million.
According to docs obtained by People, Hawkins claims Slater and his ex-wife Mary Jo Slater "ruined" his acting career by labeling him as mentally ill.
The accusations include slander, libel, defamation of character, intentional interference with prospective economic advantage, invasion of privacy, as well as intentional infliction of emotional distress. Hawkins demands a jury trial.
Dang, anything else?!
The 80-year-old claims that he doesn't have a mental illness and that his son doesn't have "a medical credential or the ability to diagnose manic-depressive schizophrenia."
The documents add:
Hey there, sexy!
We haven't seen much sheerness at the Critics' Choice Awards tonight in LA, but Mr. Robot's Portia Doubleday brought it with a vengeance!
The actress stunned in a fully embroidered gown that showed off her black undies and a Farbod Barsum clutch, while her costar Carly Chaikin went bohemian in a ruffled peach gown with plunging neckline and a slightly messy braid. She also carried a clutch — by Lee Savage – and Brian Atwood pumps.
Then there was hottie Rami Malek! He was a gorgeous hunk in his traditional black suit.
Hurray for this flawless cast!

The 37-year-old is producing a biopic about the real-life murder of gay porn director Bryan Kocis.
King Cobra will follow the story of Bryan's death, where he was notoriously stabbed 28 times before being set on fire by male escorts Harlow Cuadra and Joseph Kerekes back in 2007.
It's currently unclear who will be portraying any of those three men, but it is being reported that porn star Brent Corrigan, who started working with Bryan while he was still underage, will be played by none other than Disney Channel hottie
