'Grease' Star Jeff Conaway

Massive Storage War

Over Dead Actor's Stuff

1/16/2012 2:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jeff Conaway
"Grease" star Jeff Conaway's been dead 8 months -- but TMZ has learned, there's a three-way war brewing over the piles of junk he left behind ... and right now, there's no clear winner.

Jeff's estranged wife filed legal docs in L.A. County Superior Court -- claiming she's the rightful heir to a bunch of crap Jeff had squirreled away in an L.A. storage facility ... and she wants access to it, stat.

But the facility is refusing to let her in -- because according to legal correspondence filed with the court, Jeff's old girlfriend is ALSO vying for all the stuff inside the storage units ... citing a "living trust."

A rep for the storage facility tells TMZ, it's caught in the middle of a feud between an estranged wife and an ex-girlfriend. Since the facility doesn't know who is the rightful owner, it's refusing access to ANYONE ... until it gets the official word from the court.

Meanwhile, the storage company tells us, it has placed a lien on Jeff's estate -- for a total value of $3,600 -- claiming a storage payment hasn't been made since July, 2011.

So far, the judge hasn't made a decision.

I would think Jeff's storage would belong to his estranged wife. They weren't divorced so she would still be considered his next of kin unless he had children.

For someone to say he was a waste they should look in the mirror - maybe someones saying that about you. I loved Jeff Conaway,he was a very talented actor in Grease,Taxi etc. It's very sad he couldn't overcome his addictions. I will always have fond memories of him and he had many fans and others that loved him as well. Digusting haters - remember what goes around comes around!!!

The ex girlfriend says it was left to her via a living trust.. That trumps the ex wife.. That's the law. He said he wanted it to go to her and that's where it'll go. A judge could reverse this and leave it to the wife, but seeing as how they were estranged i highly doubt it..
