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.
