Former Young and the Restless star Kristoff St. John’s ex-wife, Allana, is asking a judge to make her guardian of their 14-year-old daughter, Lola, so she can represent her in any issues concerning her father’s death.
Yahoo Entertainment’s recent article, “Kristoff St. John’s Ex-Wife Files Guardianship Case To Protect Daughter With Late Star,” reports that Alana appears to be saying that any life insurance paid out since St. John’s passing did not go to Lola. She believes Lola is entitled to compensation.
“Due to the untimely death of the minor’s biological father on February 3, 2019, the minor will be receiving an inheritance. In order to secure her inheritance, she will need an attorney to defend a will contest and bring claims for the recovery of life insurance proceeds that were wrongfully distributed to a third party. Minor should also be entitled to a family allowance from her father’s estate,” Alana argues in the court document.
Kristoff St. John’s eldest daughter, Paris, is already fighting the late soap star’s father, over who should control his estate.
The contest is over an alleged handwritten will, which Paris St. John says doesn’t qualify as a valid last will and testament.
Paris argues that the holographic will “was written inside a private diary and was not intended to be seen by third parties,” adding, “The document would never have been found, if someone had not opened the decedent’s private journal.”
Paris has filed court documents in Los Angeles requesting to become the executor of the Young & the Restless star’s estate, according to The Blast.
It looks like Alana thinks the ongoing estate battle may get bitter, and she wants to make certain that Lola will come out in the end with the rightful share of her father’s assets.
Kristoff St. John was found dead on February 3 in his home in the San Fernando Valley. He was 52.
