Kournikova's parents want a house divided

http://www.miami.com/images/common/spacer.gif

Lawsuit against Anna Kournikova, 22, tennis star. Plaintiffs: her own mother and father.

Alla and Sergei Kournikova, along with Anna, own a seven-bedroom waterfront home on Miami Beach's Sunset Island 3. They bought it for $5 million in 2000.

''Each of the parties . . . has a one-third interest,'' says the suit, filed by attorneys Howard Rudolph and David Leacock. Anna's parents want the court to ''partition'' the property -- divide their interests equally so they get their money.

A family feud put them into Miami-Dade court. Says Rudolph: ``She's taking the position that this is her house. Mom and dad were her managers and promoters. This was a house they all shared.''

Case is before Circuit Judge Ellen Leesfield. Coincidentally, Leesfield, 53, recently took up tennis

I'm not sure what to make of this, Sumeeta. But it's probably just another distraction for Anna that she doesn't need. And the fact that Anna and her parents are having problems with each other is sad. :sad:

kinda pathetic of Anna... with all her money she doesn't want to share a little with her folks... and that's after all they went through to bring her to the US to play tennis? (let alone just being her parents) :rolleyes:

OMG what a coincidence :tape: :shrug:.

Sad to read this, you have to wonder that there's something seriously wrong when parents decide to take legal action against their children. Such a shame.

This is just a "legal" move, most likely for tax reasons. It doesn't mean the parents are against Anna.:rolleyes: Things happen like this all the time. Nothing to worry about.

Could be the case, but the article doesn't imply that. The article states that the parents want the house divided into thirds, so that each get their share of the property's assets, while Anna does not want to give up her ownership of the house. Besides would her parents really need to sue her if they are wanting to evenly divide up ownership of the property for tax purposes? It seems to me that could be done without going through a law suit.

Consider the source.:rolleyes: The press tends to make the story bigger than necessary, especially since it involves Anna.

A suit could be necessary just to make the transaction "legal."

I actually have no idea, I just don't think it's as bad as it sounds. Anna is an only child who travelled with her mother until a couple of years ago. I just don't see her treating her parents like that.

I think that is true of any celebrity, not just Anna. Besides, if this were a tabloid, I wouldn't believe it, but the Miami Herald is a different story.

I still don't see how a lawsuit would make the transaction "legal." In order to divide up property, all you need is a lawyer who can draw up the papers and make the necessary transactions with your bank. That's what my parents did when my father wanted to place a piece of property in my mother's name. The only time you would need to sue someone is if you want to claim ownership of the property where you have been residing. The fact that this is going before family court indicates that there is a real problem here.

Is it possible for Anna to buy the house for a buck and splits it?:)
I saw that on "Freaky Stories" and "Big Wife's Club" (something like that:))

She already owns the house. The lawsuit is about dividing the property into thirds, so her parents can get their share.

So she can sell it to Enrique and pay her parents 50 cents each. It's not like it has never been done before.

I wouldn't put much value into the player's "official" weights.

Some of them are just goofy.

It's not that simple. If she were to lose the case, she would have to pay off her parents or give them the house. According to Miami-Dade county records, Alla and Sergei Kournikov's names appear on the ownership records, so I am wondering what this lawsuit is really about.

Prolly over her future as a tennis player. The parents probably want her to continue etc. and she doesn't.

The integrity of the judicial system in Florida is a total LEGEND........

I think it's even more of a shame that their millionaire daughter doesn't fess up the the 2/3 of the house that the parent's own. I mean if the each own a third and it's seperated equally, than Anna should get off of her high horse and give them what they're entitled to.
