"It has long been her choice to donate her organs , and she's being kept on life support to determine if any are viable," her representative confirmed at the time. Heche was " peacefully taken off life support " on Sunday, Aug. 14, after being declared brain-dead days before. Following her death, Homer faced a contentious court battle with Atlas' father, James Tupper, who contested Laffoon's appointment as guardian of her estate. Tupper, who dated Heche for 11 years and has Atlas with the late actress, initially filed paperwork seeking to establish himself as the guardian ad litem of his son, who is legally a minor. In November, Tupper was denied his petition.
