A high-stakes game of “fetch” for the multimillion-dollar estate of a Florida woman pits her only living child against, among others, a tiny Chihuahua named Conchita.
Heiress Gail Posner lavished the beloved pooch with a $3 million trust fund, along with the run of the $8.3 million Miami Beach mansion she inhabited. Her handlers fared even better; a group that includes her bodyguards, housekeepers and a personal trainer received a whopping total of $27 million, including $10 million to one bodyguard, $5 million to another, and another $5 million to a housekeeper charged with caring for Conchita and two other dogs.
Meanwhile, Posner’s son Bret Carr was left holding the doggie bag — he received only $1 million.
The bizarre will Posner left behind when she succumbed to cancer at age 67 in March is front and center in a lawsuit Carr filed against the estate, claiming his mother’s staff drugged and brainwashed her into signing over the biggest chunk of her holdings to them and her pets.
“They saw a frail woman who was vulnerable, who had a delusional ego; she thought she was a movie star,” Carr told Matt Lauer on TODAY Monday.
“Slowly, they got into her world. And they saw, ‘OK, it’s working and it’s growing,’ and they completely took advantage.”
