It's All Going To The Dogs!!!

Have you heard the story about the woman who left her DOGS more money in her will than her son? If not, here's what you need to know:

In March, 67-year-old Gail Posner died from cancer. And when her only child, 46-year-old Bret Carr, finally got a look at the will, he was shocked to find out his mom had decided to leave three times more money to her dogs than to him.

We're not dealing with small amounts of money here. Gail left $3 MILLION to her DOGS . . . and $1 MILLION to Bret. But it gets worse: She left another $26 MILLION to her bodyguards, maids, and personal trainer.

Gail got her fortune from her father, Victor Posner, who was a real estate mogul. He died from pneumonia in 2002.

-So now, Bret has decided to SUE to overturn his mom's will. He says she MUST have been tricked by her staff to leave them . . . and the dogs . . . so much money.

According to Bret, quote, "She never would've done that unless she was under extreme influence."

His claim to the money isn't rock solid, though . . . he had an on-again, off-again relationship with his mom while she battled with addictions to drugs and alcohol.

As for the $3 MILLION dogs, they're two Chihuahuas that wear Cartier collars and dog clothing . . . so they'll probably need that money to keep living the lifestyle they've grown accustomed to. (???)

And actually, this isn't the first time the Posner family has freaked out over a will, either. When Victor died in 2002, he willed his money to his former girlfriend instead of his children. They sued and eventually got a $14 MILLION settlement.
