Los Angeles - (Reuterus): Fears of a Borat-style Kazakh custody and inheritance farce loom over the bereaved Johnson family.
So far there's little actual likelihood of a Virgie Arthur/Judge Larry Seidlin/Howard K Stern/Larry Birkhead public punchup.
But for Sale Johnson, grandmother of Casey's adopted daughter Ava-Monroe, keeping a tight rein over the toddler's legacy means keeping an estimated five hundred Kazakh relations out of the inheritance loop.
"And yes, that might mean barricading the airports when the next Kazakhstan charter flight lands," attorney-at-law Sharke E Finkleshyster commented today.
Last year Sale Johnson got a custody and residency order for her granddaughter.
A family court heard Casey's mothering instincts were described as 'trainwreckage' and her formerly plush LA mansion 'a swamp' of narco-fuelled chaos.
Ava-Monroe, aged three and a half, is set to inherit Casey's $$$s trust fund estimated at $50 million.
And although that's roughly one tenth of Dannielynn Birkhead's eventual wealth the Johnson family is taking no chances.
"They've all seen 'Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan' and fear the worst," Finkleshyster added.
Howard K Stern is 44.
