Leona Helmsley’s dog, Trouble has had his cut of Leona’s estate cut from $12 million to $2 million. How is a 9-year old Maltese supposed to live on just a measly $2 million?
Helmsley, known as the “Queen of Mean” after her tax evasion conviction, died last August. Her will specified that Trouble was to receive a $12 million trust fund to allow the general manager of Helmsley’s Sandcastle Hotel to keep Trouble in the manner to which he’d become accustomed.
Helmsley cut most of her family out of the will, leaving the bulk of her fortune to her charitable foundation. The $10 million cut from Trouble’s trust fund will revert to the charity.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
