Tyre titan hitting skids
DETHRONED tyre king Bob Jane has lost the latest in the never- ending legal battles with his estranged son as the epic family rift continues to widen.
He now faces punishment for ongoing contempt of court over failure to pay more than $ 100,000 in court fines — one of several outstanding fines he has thumbed his nose at.
Son Rodney Jane, who now controls the Bob Jane T- Mart empire, has previously suggested his dad should be jailed for continuing to ignore court orders.
The pair fell out after Rodney took over the T- Mart business, with Bob accusing him of swiping the company he ran for 40 years from him and sending him broke.
The pair have been locked in bitter legal battles since 2011, with Bob claiming he has lost almost all of a $ 100 million empire.
It is just the latest in a string of legal blows to Mr Jane.
