    Fighting over money. They have no respect. None of them deserve sh-t.

    Nothing like fighting over money and funerals. Talk about taking advantage of an old man. I bet he had much more before his kids became his conservators.

    Such a shame people are so greedy they would steal from an elderly man and abuse him until he died on top of that. FFS they even tried to sold off his Oscars. They are scums not family. Mickey was a true Hollywood Legend. I cannot believe such an icon was only worth $18,000 at the time of his death. I guess the pigs he thought as his kids and his evil 8th wife Jan sucked him dry. Sad ending to an extraordinary life.

    Oh nice. Let’s fight over a corpse uh? As if no one of his family has access to his money for his funeral. As if they have to pay it.
    It is always payed from the money of the dead one.

    Fighting over money? How broke can they be to fight over $18,000? It can’t be about that. He disown most of his family, I don’t think there is any question about why he did it. These people are despicable.

    disgusting family. where are his biological children in all this mess?

  • EC

    From what I’ve read he did not raise most of his children (at least 4 of them) after their mom was killed, their maternal grandparents actually adopted them and they only visited him occasionally. The other 4 were probably raised by their mothers and also saw him occasionally. All of his biological children are doing well so he left them out. All of the problems stem from the current wife and one of her sons, her other son stepped in and took care of him and stopped the emptying of his bank accounts.
