Hotelier and real estate billionaire Leona Helmsley has left $12 million to her pet dog Trouble. The dog received the largest bequest from the will.
The will also says that when Trouble dies, she is to be buried alongside Mrs Helmsley, who died last week, and her late husband in their mausoleum. Mrs Helmsley set aside $3 million for the upkeet of the mauseleum.
Two of Mrs Helmsley's four grandchildren where cut out of the will whilst two others receive $5 million provided they visit there fathers grave once a year. (if they find this task too onerous let me know and I'll do it!).
The money for Trouble's upkeep is the responsibility of Mrs Helmsley's brother receives $10 million.
Proceeds from the sale of Mrs Helmsley's residences and belongings will go to a charitable trust. Mrs Helmsley once said "only little people pay taxes" (I dont' think I like her much!) and sued the cemetery where her husband is buried (or is it was, oh read the story).
I'm not sure who gets the $12 million dollars when Trouble dies. Do dogs have wills?
