Goldsmith Estate Battle Heats Up

GlovesAs I have previously discussed, Deborah Karlstein has brought suit against her ex-husband's second wife, Debra Lee, in an estate battle over the death bed will revision that cut out her sons. Now, Karlstein is claiming that the international law firm that represents celebrity clients and her ex-husband Harry Goldsmith was a partner of, is threatening to sue her and cause her to rack up huge legal fees in retaliation for exposing the party boy ways of Goldsmith and the firm's inattention to his drug and alcohol addictions. The firm is providing pro-bono legal counsel for Lee. While the firm has not denied Karlstein's claim, they expressed disaproval of Karlstein tarnishing Goldsmith's reputation.
