061608helmsley.jpgLeona Helmsley’s dog Trouble, who was famously bequeathed $12 million from the late real estate tycoon, will now have to make do on a measly $2 million, according to the Post. Helmsley had set aside the money for the care of her beloved Maltese while also disinheriting two of her grandchildren, Craig Panzirer, 40, and Meegan Panzirer Wesolko, 37, "for reasons which are known to them." The siblings have now hammered out a deal with Helmsley’s executor, having argued that the billionaire “Queen of Mean” was not of sound mind when she signed the will in 2005.

The settlement gives the two snubbed grandchildren several tax free millions – Panzirer gets $4 million, Wesolko gets $2 million – in exchange for a confidentiality agreement. $10 million will be taken from Trouble and put into Helmsley’s charitable foundation, but the dog’s primary caretaker, a general manager of the Helmsley Sandcastle Hotel, says $2 million will easily cover the canine’s living expenses, which add up to approximately $190,000 a year. That includes a $60,000 guardian fee, $100,000 for 24 hour security (Trouble's gotten death threats), $8,000 for grooming, $3,000 for miscellaneous expenses, $1,200 for food and anywhere from $2,500 to $18,000 for medical care.
