Stern Estate Battle Getting Uglier

Marilyn Monroe by Bert Stern 082

As I have previously discussed, the three adult children of late celebrity photographer Bert Stern, who is famous for snapping provocative photos of Marilyn Monroe, are currently locked in an estate battle with his young widow over his $10 million fortune.

The kids are now trying to introduce Stern’s psychiatry records to shed light on the 83-year-old Stern’s mysterious secret marriage to the 44-year-old Shannah Laumeister.  Laumeister claims the records could damage Stern’s reputation and the value of his estate.
