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...

Wow, what a surprise-- a Black NFL player w/ a bunch of bastard kids w/ various women. "Film at Eleven."

Look, these poor Black bastard kids from when this cheatin' cad McNair was tom-catting around gettin' his grove-on resulting in a couple of accidental pregnancies (I guess there's no staircases in Atlanta, or vacuums/coat hangers) (((D E S E R V E))) to have some of the money. I bet his widow is cold-hearted enough to take out her grievances regarding this wacko White homewrecking slut out on McNair's 2 sons born out of wedlock.

But I wish all well. Good luck! :-)

It's not Mechelle's responsibility to name the two older boys as heirs. She can only speak for herself and her two sons.

It's the responsibility of the OTHER children's mother to petition the court to recognize them as heirs to McNair's estate.

It doesn't matter what Mechelle believes, wants, thinks or feels about it. All of McNair's children are entitled to inherit. Michelle can't stop it (not saying she wants to) but neither is she obligated to represent their interests. She is not their legal counsel.

TMZ stop misrepresenting the truth.

All of the McNair children should be DNA tested for proof they are Steve's, then divide the monies equally among them, if/when they are proven to be his...and any other McNair kid that comes forward, which I expect will be a few... The man got around, and obviously didn't use protection...

What a sad addition to this case; those boys have nothing to do with what their father did to Mrs. McNair. So why treat them so cruely? Obviously, he thought or knew they were / are his kids. How dare she not treat them as such. Greedy, greedy greedy broad!

Another point is maybe she has decided to let their mothers file their own motion to the court. Maybe to other on is grown and he can file his paperwork also.

WE SHOULD NOT JUMP TO ANY CONCLUSION BASED ON WHAT TMZ SAYS ABOUT THIS.

There is a will somewhere but she does not know about it because it
is with whomever his attorney is that how it’s done.

His other children are included. However they had 4 children so that
would be divided by 6 plus her share. All these children quality for
his Death benefit from the Social Security Administration which should be more than who ever got the $500.00 I
received 1,500 a month from an ex and father of my beautiful daughter.
Child support was 550.00 every other week.

If this story is true is just because how bad it must suck to be her
right now. Totally humiliated by her dead husband.

People gossiping about what happened. She didn’t even get to say
good-bye to her husband.

Harvey leave this woman alone. SHE IS STILL GREIVING OVER HOW IT
SUCKS TO BE HER RIGHT NOW. HER HUSBAND WAS KILLED IN A CONDO HE USED
TO HAVE SEX WITH ANOTHER WOMAN.

END OF STORY

Wow, a real statement for the new U.S.A. when you've got a house pending foreclosure with a divorce that nobody knows nothin' about because "ain't gonna be no snitchin'", 3 baby mamas, 2 Esclades and an Indian chick on the side while you leave behind an "estate". Estate?

I think it's about time for castration and mandatory birth control. Lack of both by "entitled" people is what got this country in the state it's in today.

STEVE WAS VERY INVOLVED WITH HIS CHILDREN EVEN ATTENDING FOOTBALL PRACTICE @ OAK GROVE HIGH SCHOOL. IN HATTIESBURG, MS., JUST A WEEK BEFORE HIS DEATH. HE MENTORED AND PRACTIVED WITH THE FOOTBALL TEAM. MR. MCNAIR HAS 4 CHILDREN AND WAS ACTIVE IN ALL THEIR LIVES. LETS REMEMBER THE FAMILY, AND WHAT THESE KIDS MUST BE GOING THROUGH. HE LOVED HIS KIDS. STEVE WAS VERY GIVING, OF HIS TIME AND MONEY. OUR COMMUNITY IS DEVASTATED BY HIS LOSS. A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO BECOME FAMOUS FORGET WHERE THEY CAME FROM, THIS CAN'T BE SAID OF STEVE MCNAIR. RIP STEVE!

I a glad some of you set the record straight about TN Law & MRS. McNair nameing heirs. It is up to their mothers to protect their childrens rights. As his wife SHE DOESN"T OWE THE OTHER KIDS ANYTHING. Again it is up to their Moms to protect their interest. As a former STEPMOM with stepkids who are unruly,disrespectful liars, I would totally understand if she wanted to leave them out. My husbands children from a previous marriage were awful to me & mine so, NO I would not have a problem
leaving them out either.Call me Cold,Cruel or heartless, but so were these children. They are all grown now, & just like any other other adult that I don't like, I don't have to deal with them anymore.

This is not accurate. The two older sons are from two DIFFERENT mothers. Cotina Feazell is the mother of Steve McNair's oldest son, Steven L. McNair Jr., who is a senior and star wide receiver at Oak Grove High in Hattiesburg, Miss.
His second son, Steven O'Brian Koran McNair, 15, has a different mother and lives in Mount Olive, Miss. with his grandmother, Cora McNair (no relation to Steve McNair). He is the one who has been receiving $500 per month child support.
Cotina Feazell has declined discussing her financial arrangements for her son but refers all questions to Steve McNair's former agent. Read
