Administrator of Doris Duke Estate Tries to Prevent Twin Heirs' Mother and Boyfriend From Getting Money

Unknown-2Doris Duke has twin heirs and a convicted child molester who dates the mother of those heirs may be trying to get the money. 

Randy Williams, 49-year-old sex offender is dating Daisha Inman, the mother of the twin 15-year-old heirs. The twins inherited the trust from their late dad, Walker Patterson Inman Jr. Their dad was the nephew of Doris Duke, the late tobacco heiress and philanthropist. 

JPMorgan is the administrator of the trust that provides for the heirs and claims fears that Randy has been using Daisha's email address to hit the twins up for money.  JPMorgan also alleges that Daisha is making suspicious requests of the twins as well. 

Randy Williams was convicted of molesting his stepdaughters from another marriage, and he is forbidden from contacting his son after a Washington state court determined that he sexually abused that son.

JPMorgan's filing requests that the court bar Daisha from allowing Randy to act on her behalf or benefit from the heirs' trust, valued at over $29 million. The filing also demands that Daisha provide an accounting of how she spent her children's money and to keep records of the way she spends it.
