Prosecutors rest case against fake German heiress

Prosecutors rest case against fake German heiress New York prosecutors have rested their case against the woman accused of passing herself off as a German heiress and swindling friends, banks and hotels. Anna Sorokin told a judge Monday she will not testify in her grand larceny and theft of services trial in state court in Manhattan. Her decision came after several weeks of testimony in a case that has drawn international attention. Closing arguments are expected Tuesday, and jurors will begin deliberating the same day. Prosecutors say Sorokin bilked people and businesses out of $275,000 while living a jet-setting lifestyle she couldn't afford.

Tom Petty‘s two daughters are now suing his widow for allegedly mismanaging the late rocker’s businesses and they believe she has cost the company over $5 million.

Petty Unlimited was set up to manage Petty’s affairs after his death and was supposed to be run by his daughters, Adria and Annakim, and his widow, Dana Petty.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Petty Unlimited claims that Dana and others have breached their fiduciary duties to the company by withholding certain assets and diverting them to another company she set up.

They claim Dana has set up a competing company, Tom Petty Legacy LLC., which has interfered with their work and gone against their father’s wishes.

FBI reportedly investigating Lonzo Ball's former business manager

FBI reportedly investigating Lonzo Ball's former business manager Lonzo Ball and his family recently had a falling out with longtime business manager Gregory Alan Foster. And it’s possible that Foster cost the Los Angeles Lakers guard and his family millions. Tania Ganguli and Richard Winton of the Los Angeles Times reported that the matter is being investigated by the FBI. “Authorities say the investigation is focused on allegations included in a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court this month by Lonzo Ball and Big Baller Brand. The suit alleges Foster took more than $1.

The lawsuit claims, “As direct and proximate cause of Defendant Dana York Petty ‘s usurpation of Plaintiff s business opportunities as alleged herein, Plaintiff has suffered and continues to suffer damage in an amount in excess of $5 million, according to proof at trial.”

As The Blast first reported, Dana filed documents last month requesting that all “significant decisions” require consensus between her and Petty’s daughters because majority voting would allow for the two daughters to exert their will over her.

In her petition, Dana claims “she has gone above and beyond to seek to work cooperatively with Tom’s daughters” but they have made that difficult.

“Although Petitioner did everything in her power to treat Adria and Annakim as family,” she writes, “sadly, they, and in particular Adria, have repeatedly demonstrated their resentment over their father’s love of Petitioner and her role in his life.”
