Mother of Beneficiaries of Doris Duke Fortune Claims Her Children Need Mental Healthcare

TwinsAs I have previously discussed, Daisha Inman has been accused over the past two years of spending her children’s inheritance on lavish parties and gifts. Inman is the mother of 16-year-old twins Georgia and Patterson Inman who are the beneficiaries of a billion dollar inheritance from their great aunt Doris Duke.   Inman claimed during an interview with Dr. Phil, that she needs the funds to pay for her children’s mental healthcare expenses.

The twins shared with Dr. Phil their story of terrible abuse while living with their father, Walker Inman Jr., the nephew of Duke. Inman claims her ex-husband stole the twins from her when they were young and abandoned her in the Cayman Islands with no way of getting home. The twins claim that they suffered terrible treatment at the hands of babysitters, including being burned, locked in rooms, and forced to play Russian Roulette. The twins now live with their mother, after the death of their father in 2010 when he overdosed on meth.

See Mother of twins, 16, set to inherit billion dollar Doris Duke fortune insists she needs their money to pay for their mental health care after 'they suffered years of abuse at hands of drug-addict father'Daily Mail, January 31, 2014.
