Richard Pryor's daughter Elizabeth is accusing the late comedian's wife, Jennifer Lee, of mentally abusing the late comedian.

In a petition filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Elizabeth is seeking removal of Jennifer as a trustee of Pryor's estate, citing "elder abuse."

Elizabeth claims Pryor, who suffered from multiple sclerosis, was isolated by Jennifer from his family and friends. Family visits were limited to once a month, 40 minutes max.

According to the petition, the alleged abuse caused Pryor "depression, despair, agitation, and other extreme mental suffering." The petition goes on-- "Given Mr. Pryor's utter dependence on Jennifer for his personal and financial welfare, her actions were reckless, oppressive, fraudulent and malicious."
