Battle Brewing Over McNair Estate

7/19/2009 2:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Steve McNair EstateSlain QB Steve McNair may have left a mess behind, because a legal fight over his estate seems to be taking shape.

McNair did not leave a will. His widow, Mechelle, has been named administrator of his estate. She's named her two sons, Tyler and Trenton, as heirs.

But here's the problem. McNair has two older sons from a prior relationship -- Steven McNair Jr. and Steven O'Brian Koran McNair. Mechelle did not list either child as an heir.

Under Tennessee law, Mechelle gets 1/3 of the estate and the remaining 2/3 is split evenly among the heirs.

We don't know why Mechelle failed to mention the other two kids. There are reports she's not convinced McNair fathered the two older kids, even though one of them was getting $500 a month in child support from the NFL'er.

And the plot thickens ... McNair's agent is being coy about the possibility a will really does exist.

Stay tuned...

If he was paying child support, there is no sense in trying to deny the kids now. And even if a will does surface, McNair cannot legally cut his other two kids (assuming they are still minors) out of the will.

He has two sons named Steven...just like Michael Jackson has two sons named Prince Michael. Just a similar fact between the two...oh and the whole legal battles that are brewing. They coincide in that also.

I can't believe what people will do for money. Cut the kids out? WTF? Maybe this is why McNair was looking elsewhere for sex or love....except poor Steve found someone more cold-hearted than his wife. That's a shame.

Wait let me see, Mcnair made what? 75 MILLION from his football years?
and he was paying 500 DOLLARS A MONTH child support?

My sisters husband was paying that and he made , wel not quite 75 million,

thats outrageous he was only paying that amount
this guy must have squandered his millions. I would expect to see a LOT OF assets somewhere
unless he has 40 million in his bank account. All I have seen so far is a 3 million dollar house, which might not even be paid for yet

There seems to be no justice in this world. McNair paying $500.00 a month for child support is a joke. He should had been paying a lot more. I can't believe the mother of the children agreed to this amount. I just pray that they will get their share from his estate. His wife is just being a b***h. There is no way that she can omit these other children out of his estate. The mother of the children needs to get a lawyer quick.

You're an ex pro football player who made millions during your career and you left no will????? No disrespect to the dead, but it looks like this guy was more concern with chasing after strange tail (I'm sure the chick that killed him wasn't the first ho he stepped out of his marriage with) than being a responsible father and husband, ensuring that his finances were in order. Let this be a cautionary tale for all you pro athletes reading the comments on this thread. You can well afford a competent lawyer and financial planner to help make sure your personal affairs are in order.
