The divorce trial of NASA astronaut Anne McClain and Summer Worden is set to begin in Houston next month.
Worden claims McClain illegally accessed her financial records while aboard the International Space Station in an effort to gain custody of her son. McClain's lawyer says she was only monitoring the account to ensure the boy's well being.
Worden has since brought an FTC complaint against McClain for identity theft, potentially the first criminal allegation from space.
McClain took to Twitter Saturday saying, "There's unequivocally no truth to these claims."
There’s unequivocally no truth to these claims. We’ve been going through a painful, personal separation that’s now unfortunately in the media. I appreciate the outpouring of support and will reserve comment until after the investigation. I have total confidence in the IG process.— Anne McClain (@AstroAnnimal) August 24, 2019
NASA also released a statement saying they do not comment on personal or personnel issues.
