HEIRS BATTLE OVER ESPN HOST'S FORTUNE
ESPN host Stuart Scott died four years ago, but the battle over his estate and his remains rages on.
His daughters Taelor and Sydni Scott have lodged a lawsuit claiming that the people in charge of the estate are not fulfilling their obligation towards the family and refuse to hand over their father's remains.
The sisters accuse the trustees of funding Scott's former girlfriend Kristin Spodobalski's luxurious lifestyle while ignoring their mother's financial needs.
Stuard Scott passed away in his home in Avon Connecticut at the age of 49, the victim of neuroendocrine cancer.
