Mickey Rooney has been barely laid to rest and there's already inter-family lawsuit brewing over the late great's estate!
We reported earlier how Mickey named his stepson Mark the sole inheritor of his estate, and had previously disowned his other children!
Now, looks like his other kids are trying to go to court over his fortune (or lack thereof…he only had $18,000 in his bank account when he died), as apparently Jan, his estranged wife, thinks his will was invalid because she claims he wasn't in the right state of mind when he wrote it.
Reportedly, his daughters Kimmy Sue and Kelly Ann are getting together a legal team to investigate whether or not there are any loopholes to his will.
According to a new report, his wife and other children feel like there is a considerable amount of money to be made in residuals. While they expect hundreds of thousands, according to Mickey's lawyer, the late actor only made $20 and $25,000 a year from residuals.
We just hope all this legal drama ends soon. We hate to see a family turn against itself over money.
