Billie Lourd, Todd Fisher NOT In “Family Feud” Over Debbie Reynolds Money Or Carrie Estate, Despite Report
Billie Lourd and Todd Fisher are not in a “family feud” over Debbie Reynolds’ money or Carrie Fisher’s estate, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the story, which a rep for Lourd tells us is untrue.
As Gossip Cop reported, Carrie died in December after suffering a medical emergency while on a flight from London to Los Angeles. One day after her passing, Debbie died of a stroke. Now nearly four months later, RadarOnline is claiming that Carrie’s daughter and Debbie’s son (Carrie’s brother) are in a “war” over Debbie’s “fortune.”
This “bitter family feud,” as the site calls it, supposedly “erupted” because Debbie’s will did not account for Carrie dying before her. The screen icon allegedly “left the bulk of her $70 million estate” to her two children and granddaughter. But with Carrie’s death, a so-called “source” claims Billie “believes her mother’s share should pass straight to her.”
“But Todd thinks Carrie’s share should go to him as Debbie’s only surviving direct descendant,” the outlet’s alleged source asserts. Now, contends the site’s purported tipster, “Friends are bracing for a family war.” And, as proof of “bad blood,” the webloid points out that Billie did not attend the public memorial Todd organized last month.
The real reason, however, that Billie did not participate was she did not feel ready at the time, instead deciding to honor her beloved mother at last week’s Star Wars convention. As for a financial dispute, Gossip Cop is told specifics of Carrie and Debbie’s estates are being worked out. But the allegation that there is a “feud” between Billie and Todd over the family’s money is “nonsense,” the actress’ rep tells Gossip Cop exclusively.
