Possible Agreement Reached Between Shari Redstone and Her Niece

Shari redstoneThe white flag has been waved in the family feud between Shari Redstone and her niece Keryn Redstone. The issue between the two family members resulted from changes made to Sumner Redstone’s trust. Keryn, a beneficiary of the trust, claimed that her aunt was making the changes to the trust not Sumner. However, a tentative settlement was reached on Friday, which could put this family feud to rest. In that hearing, Sumner’s lawyer agreed to give Keryn the assurance that she was being treated equally amongst the grandchildren under the trust document.
