When billionaire hotelier Leona Helmsley bequeathed $12 million to her pooch before she died last month, it's a good thing she left the eight-year-old Maltese enough to hire a good lawyer. Trouble, who was inseparable from the 'Queen of Mean' when she was alive, and had a propensity to bite anyone who came near her, will have to stave off people who are already lining up to get a piece of her, ahem, fortune.
Helmsley's housekeeper is one of them, the New York Times reports. She's suing on the grounds that Trouble bit her repeatedly, and she wears her arm in a brace because the dog's nips allegedly caused nerve damage. "That dog got money. That money is going to be taken away from that dog," says the housekeeper's son.
