Tragedy has given way to familial warfare in the weeks since the death of Disco Queen Donna Summer.
Two of Summer’s three daughters — Mimi, 39 and Brooklyn, 31 — are in a full-fledged Battle Royale over who will win the most of the $75 million fortune. The family feuding began weeks before Donna, 63, lost her 10-month battle against lung cancer on May 17 — if The National Enquirer is to be believed.
Donna’s girls have different fathers, which may explain the ordeal a bit, the tabloid says. Donna and her husband of more than three decades Bruce Sudano are the parents to Brooklyn and Amanda, 28. German actor Helmut Sommer, Donna’s first husband, is the father of Mimi.
An Enquirer insider squeals:
“Donna was barely gone before Mimi and Brooklyn began battling over how much money they should get. Mimi thinks she should get the most because she is first born, but Brooklyn made it clear that she and her sister Amanda should get more. Poor Bruce is still very upset over Donna’s passing, and the last thing he needs to deal with is the daughters fighting over the money –especially since Donna left it all to him, and he is being generous by agreeing to share it. Amanda is sweet and is sympathetic to Bruce. She keeps telling her sisters to stop being so greedy and give him space to grieve before making him go through all the finances.”
