As previously mentioned, Sam Simon was the co-creator of The Simpsons. When he died a year ago, he reportedly left his $100 million estate to various charities. However, various charities he had supported during his life were initially miffed that they had not received support from his trust during the six months after his death. Also, the individual taking care of his Cane Corso was squabbling with the Trustee about receiving insufficient funds to care for the dog. Now, his girlfriend has filed a claim against his estate alleging that Simon had promised her $5 million in his will if she quit her job. His first wife, Jennifer Tilly, also filed a claim against the estate asking to continue to receive payments from his estate for work he did on The Simpsons and the Drew Carey Show.
