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.
Without the proof, the judge said:
“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!
