Devon and Steve Aoki win control over late father's estate

6/17/2014

Dance DJ Steve Aoki and his actress sister Devon have won a long-running legal battle with their estranged stepmother over their late father's fortune. The stars have been embroiled in a court fight with Keiko Ono Aoki since their dad, Benihana restaurant founder Hiroaki 'Rocky' Aoki, died in 2008. Keiko, Aoki's third wife, was awarded control of her late husband's $35 million (£21.8 million) estate last year (13), but the Aoki kids appealed the decision and this week (begs12May14), a judge ruled in the pair's favour. According to the new ruling, the 36-year-old DJ and the 31-year-old Sin City beauty will each receive 50 per cent of their dad's trust, giving them ownership rights to the Japanese restaurant chain and a share of the popular eatery's income. However, the stars will not get access to the money until they turn 45, according to TMZ.com.
