“The ashtray blew up severely burning her hand and arm with third-degree burns and burnt off eyelashes and eyebrows,” the lawsuit claims, per The Sun.

Yet, Frank “refused” to take Diann “to the hospital.” He told her to “toughen up” and deal with the burns. She went to the hospital the next day where she was “treated for third-degree burns.” When they ended their relationship, Diann changed the locks on their Iowa home.

Their relationship didn’t end there though. Diann tried to take Frank to court for the burns. On March 19, 2020, she dismissed the case. The former American Pickers star told The Sun that Diann was the one who was unfaithful to him during their relationship. He also claimed that she owed him “six figures.”

In March 2018, they purchased an Iowa mansion for $355,000. The American Pickers fan-favorite sold the home following their split in January 2021 for $358,000.
