Helmsley's Dog Gets $12 Million In Will

Wed Aug 29, 2007 9:00 pm

NEW YORK -- Leona Helmsley's dog will continue to live an opulent life, and then be buried alongside her in a mausoleum. But two of Helmsley's grandchildren got nothing from the late luxury hotelier and real estate billionaire's estate.

Helmsley left her beloved white Maltese, named Trouble, a $12 million trust fund, according to her will, which was made public Tuesday in surrogate court.

Of note is she also "cut out" two of her four grand children for "reasons known well to them".

Nothing like getting a hidy ho F-you from the grave like that. The woman was a bitch but it still must be embarrassing to be those grand-kids.
It's not a near miss it's a near hit!!

I smell a challenge to this will from the 2 screwed grand kids. Probably the dog was one of the only friends she had late in life. She also gave $100K to her driver, not a bad bonus. I would note that about $1 Billion + of the estate will go to a Charitable Trust under her and her husband's name, hopefully to deserving organizations.

Another wealthy, selfish american who needed a good kick in her philanthropic ass. Why a truck never ran over her long before, I'll never know. I hope them grandkids sue for what is owed them.

Well, nothing is "owed" them, but never the less I think it just shows what kind of women she was.

That is the one thing many people aren't talking about that item. Of course that doesn't make good press. They would rather tantalize us with class envy and warfare by portraying her as a total rich bitch...when in fact she is a partial rich bitch with a giving side.

Good luck to them. I doubt anything will come of it as long as it can be shown she was of a sound mind when she drafted the will. She earned the money, not them, and as such can detrmine who gets it all after she is gone. I wonder what it is they have done that she says they know about that was responsible for them getting cut out of the will? Did they stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night?  Wink

Owed them? Did they earn the money? I don't think so. They are owed nothing at all despite being born into a rich family. It was Leona's money to do with as she pleased. If the grandkids don't like it then tough cookies. Go get a job and qut being a trust fund baby.

So I've heard. I'd like the chance to try.

Unfortunately that will not happen for me as my parents have spent my inheritance on the family vineyard and winery. Maybe after they toil with it and then I work it for many years my kids can be trust fund babies and live my dream.  Wink

Totally, people here don't know what when on between her and the two grandkids left out of the will....it could be anything from marrying the wrong girl, or they are gay or they didn't stand behind her during here battle with the gov't. It could be anything. But she got the last laugh..and good for her!

She's just a rich bitch who realized she couldn't spend her money when she was dead
