Bernice and Martin Luther King III are suing their brother Dexter (pictured in center) behind some suspect money issues:

Bernice King and Martin Luther King III filed a lawsuit Thursday in county court to force Dexter King to open the books of their father’s estate. The lawsuit claims that Dexter King, the estate’s administrator, is refusing to provide his two siblings with documents concerning the estate’s operations. That includes financial records, contracts, financial affairs and other documents, the lawsuit said.

The lawsuit claims that Dexter King and the estate “converted substantial funds from the estate’s financial account … for their own use” on June 20 without notifying his siblings. The lawsuit also claims that Dexter King may have taken assets from the firm “for his own benefit” and that the assets may have been “misapplied or wasted.”

Damn – money must be the root of all evil if a King family show-down of this magnitude is going down. This ish sounds dicey as hell. SMH.

    I hope that matter is resolved immediately so that this does not have to be one more thing to look at black folks do. Please straighten this out

    The LOVE of money is the root of all evil.

    SMH@ MLK’s son. The love of money, with the lack of money, is the root of evil.

    How disgusting-this is why my husband and I have made wills out that include each one of our children,so none of them can make decisions for the other ones-everyone will get equal share.

    from their FATHER’S estate? I think they may mean their MOTHER’S estate. I hope they are not still arguing over a 60s will ;-(

    Please no. Please no. Daxn, this couldn’t be done on the low. What is going on. When MLK, Jr. is your father, you better straighten and fly right for real.

    These people are human beings. The have the same stress and problems that everyone has. They are not icons their father and mother was. I am sure that in the end everything will work itself out. There are probably mediators stepping as we type.

    Unfortunately, this occurs within families that run non-profit organizations. That happened here in Texas with the Carl B. and Florence E. King Foundation (the people behind Sesame Street). It was so sad to read about, but I’m glad they’re holding him to scrutiny instead of just letting him spend it all away.
