Kristoff St. John's Ex-Wife Mia Says She's the Sole Beneficiary of His Life Insurance Policy

KristoffThe family drama in the wake of Kristoff St. John's death is coming to a boil as different members vie for control of different sections of his estate. His father previously filed to become executor of St. John's estate, but then the eldest daughter of the deceased, Paris, objected and filed her own petition last month, stating that her father died without a will.

Now, his ex-wife Mia is jumping into the foray. “Kristoff did not have a will. What was found were pages in a journal. There were things that were scribbled out, crossed out, and we just want to make sure — my daughter just wants to make sure — that his wishes are carried out,” she says. Mia says her daughter his not fighting St. John's father, but rather trying to clarify her father's last requests. 

Mia and St. John were married from the years 1991 to 1995 and had two children together, Julian, died by suicide at age 24 in 2014, and Paris. Mia also claims that because of Julian's death, she is the sole remaining beneficiary of a life insurance policy for the actor. He was found dead in his home in the San Fernando Valley on February 3rd, and a month later his death was ruled an accident.
