Leona Helmsley, the recently deceased billionaire who was famous for being mean and evading taxes, left two of her grandchildren nothing but gave her dog Trouble a $12-million trust fund so it can continue to enjoy the lifestyle it has become accustomed to.

Leona Helmsley’s dog will continue to live an opulent life, and then be buried alongside her in a mausoleum. But two of Helmsley’s grandchildren got nothing from the late luxury hotelier and real estate billionaire’s estate.
Helmsley left her beloved white Maltese, named Trouble, a $12 million trust fund, according to her will, which was made public Tuesday in surrogate court.
She also left millions for her brother, Alvin Rosenthal, who was named to care for Trouble in her absence, as well as two of four grandchildren from her late son Jay Panzirer—so long as they visit their father’s grave site once each calendar year.
