The Leona Helmsley will: $12M trust for dog, nothing for 2 grandkids

Leona Helmsley’s dog will continue to live an opulent life, and then be buried alongside her in a mausoleum. But two of Helmsley’s grandchildren got nothing from the late luxury hotelier and real estate billionaire’s estate.

CNN wrote today about one of the more interesting details of the will of Leona Helmsley: the $12 million dollars left to her dog Trouble.

She further “ordered that cash from sales of the Helmsley’s residences and belongings, reported to be worth billions, be sold and that the money be given to the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust.”

CNN mentioned only the will and that the money was left in a “trust fund” of some kind leaving me to wonder if it was a pet-trust or not.
