An auction for the belongings of the late Lucille Ball and her second husband is stirring up contention among the couple's heirs.
Heirs of the late Lucille Ball and her second husband are sparring over the planned auction of some of the couple's prized possessions, including a Rolls Royce and some of the actress' awards.
Ms. Luckinbill wants the return of seven love letters, Ball's address book, some portraits and several lifetime achievement awards being offered for sale, Mr. Palmieri said.
"It is clear these are personal effects earned by a lifetime of work by someone of great stature in the entertainment community," Mr. Palmieri said in a statement. "To demean their true nature, and prostitute their value in monetary terms, is insulting to Ms. Ball's memory and contravenes her express desire that these items were to belong to her daughter after her death."
