Mother of Heirs to the Doris Duke Fortune Ordered to Explain her Big Spending


Daisha Inman has allegedly blown over $1 million of her children’s $60 million inheritance since 2010. 

Daisha Inman was married to Walker Inman Jr., the nephew of tobacco heiress Doris Duke.  Following his death, the Duke fortune is now held in trust for their twin children. 

Inman “has been ordered to appear in court next month to answer charges that she’s treated their trust funds as a personal piggy bank.”  Inman asserts she has never touched their trust funds and points the finger towards the Citibank and J.P. Morgan trustees who administer her children’s accounts.
