DWTS is required to submit the paperwork because the Crocodile Hunter's daughter is a minor. Her mother Terri has already signed off, giving up the rights to the money her daughter makes from the competition show — but the judge is requesting the same release from her late dad.
"The court is unable to find that it is in the best interest of the minor to be bound by the terms of the contract."
Unless the judge lives under a rock, we're sure she's aware of the circumstances, but is being a stickler for the official paperwork.
Lawyers for the ABC show are reportedly willing to provide whatever information necessary.
Bindi continues to flourish on the series — and she's already guaranteed $230k as we enter week nine.
We hope this all gets sorted out soon!
