Celebrity Disputes

According to several news reports, Martin Luther King, Jr.’s three children – Bernice, Dexter, and Martin Luther III – are engaged in a legal battle over certain items from Martin Luther King, Jr.’s estate. The two items involved are his Noble Peace Prize medal and his personal traveling Bible.

In a press conference held on February 6, Bernice stated that “I take this strong position for my father because Daddy is not here to say for himself, ‘My Bible and my medals are not to be sold.'”

While several of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s noted friends and reverends agree with Bernice, both of her brothers are claiming that the 1995 agreement they all signed, giving up the rights to many of their inherited items, includes these two personal items.
