THE Nashville bomber was sued by his own mom in a bitter dispute over a $250,000 inheritance, a report says.
Anthony Quinn Warner, 63, planted a bomb in a motor home which exploded in the city on Christmas Day injuring three people.
Human remains found at the blast site were matched to the IT worker – who was reportedly motivated by wild conspiracy theories about 5G tech.
And it has now emerged that Warner had fallen out with his own mother in recent years over a family property.
According to court records seen by the Daily Mail, the bomber's brother Steven, 62, died in 2018 without leaving a will.
He owned a home left to him by his father Charles – who had divorced Steven and Anthony's mother Betty Lane, 85, years before his own death in 2011.
Betty argued that the former family home legally belonged to her and alleged Anthony had fraudulently claimed the $250,000 property in a deed transfer a month before his brother's death.
Bachelor Anthony then gifted the property to a 29-year-old woman named Michelle Swing who was based in LA.
It is unclear what relationship the bomber had to Swing who is not suspected of any wrongdoing.
The dispute was resolved earlier this year when the 29-year-old transferred the three-bed home back to Betty who is living there today.
In her lawsuit Betty alleged the Anthony carried out an "act of self-interest" when he transferred the house to himself while acting with power of attorney.
The suit alleges that he "violated his duty to act in the best interest of his brother."
At a court hearing in February 2019, a judge ruled that Betty was the appropriate party to control her dead son's estate.
It was also revealed by The Sun on Sunday that Warner wrote to Swing that he planned to "travel on Christmas Eve to spend a few weeks in the woods with his dogs."
And it emerged that Warner gifted TWO homes to the 29-year-old both on Bakertown Road in Nashville.
Despite their legal dispute, his mother Betty praised her son as a "good man."
"I‘m devastated and upset. I can’t say any more," she told The Sun in an exclusive interview.
Police are also reportedly probing whether Warner's paranoia was fuelled by the death of his dementia-ridden dad – who worked for an AT&T subsidiary.
Warner was "heavily into conspiracy theories" and believed 5G was the "root of all deaths in the region", the Daily Mail reports.
Baseless conspiracy theories have emerged online this year about ultra-fast 5G internet including that it's a tool to spy on people.
Another wild claim is that the broadband network has fueled the spread of Covid-19.
Since Warner has been named as the bomber, police have reportedly seized his electronic devices from this home in Antioch, Nashville.
A source told the Mail: "We are waiting on the digital footprint that should finally provide us with some answers.
"The unofficial motive thus far is the suspect believed 5G was the root of all deaths in the region and he’d be hailed a hero."
And cops are investigating whether Warner was motivated by the death of his father Charles B. Warner, the report says.
Charles, who died of dementia in 2011 aged 78, worked for BellSouth, a former subsidiary of AT&T which re-merged with the telecommunications giant in 2006.
