LEONA HELMSLEY’S DOG LOSES $10 MILLION OUT OF TRUST FUND

LEONA HELMSLEY AND HER MILLIONAIRE DOG TROUBLE

Screw the Pooch.

That was the headline in today’s New York Post as a Manhattan judge reduced the trust fund of the late Queen of Mean’s dog, Trouble, from $12 million to $2 million. Leona Helmsley was a Manhattan real estate mogul and notorious charcacter who died last year at the age of 87.

The judge basically decided that Helmsley wasn’t mentally competent when she signed her final will. The judge divided the $10 million taken away from the dog between Helmsley’s two disinherited grandchildren.

The dog will still live out the rest of her years in luxury with $2 million left in his trust. The Post lists  Trouble’s expenses at just over $190,000 a year:

 

“…which includes a $60,000 guardian fee, $100,000 for ’round-the-clock security, $8,000 for grooming, $3,000 for miscellaneous expenses, $1,200 for food and anywhere from $2,500 to $18,000 for medical care.”
