Sam Kinison's Widow Cries Fraud

6/23/2009 3:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sam KinisonSam Kinison's widow has sued Sam's brother for allegedly forging the comedian's will -- 17 years after his death.

Malika Borghese filed a lawsuit yesterday in L.A. County Superior Court, claiming William Kinison forged the document by drafting it and then forging Sam's signature after his death. As a result, Malika claims, the lion's share of Sam's estate went to his bro.

So why the 17-year delay? Malika says she was in the dark until June, 2007, when a friend of Sam's allegedly fessed up that he was in on the forgery.

The suit claims William has been exploiting Sam's voice and image ever since his death.

By the way, Malika was only married to Sam for 5 days, before he died in a car crash.

Just for your info Malika was not the reason for Sam to be Sober, She just got sober herself. She lived a good life because of Sam and so did her Sister, Mother, and Brother. I think Sam picked her and her family up out of the slums of Vegas. All the loosers that he took care of are all out of money. GET A JOB Malika, maybe another porn!!!

Sam was actually in debt at the time of his death. He was very generous and always picked up the tab for his friends, or gave large sums of money away to people like the mother of Lenny Bruce. So the only thing they would be fighting for now, would be movie rights or something like that. But I think Howard Stern bought the movie rights some ten or more years ago, based on Bill Kinison's book Brother Sam.

If he signed forged the Will he may be doing his act behind bars.....Even if she was married to him 5 days prior to his death...she's entitled to a LARGE portion of his estate if no will is on file.....Good reason to have your affairs in order....

I've seen entire comedy clubs clear out during his act... being offended... he would stand on stage, stare each one down as they left and scream at them... beautiful stuff.

If he forged Sam's Last Will and Testiment he may be doing stand-up for fellow prison inmates......Doesn't matter how long he was married to her...Fact is she is his widow.....That's what happens when you DO NOT retain an attorney to take care of business.....She is Sam's widow she should be entitled to a large sum of Sam's estate if in fact there was no Will signed...
