Larry Hagman

Estate Accuses Granddaughter

Of Jewelry Heist

EXCLUSIVE

0524_larry_hagman_getty
The drama in Larry Hagman's life lives on ... months after his death, because the actor's estate now claims Larry's granddaughter has committed familial treason by holding ridiculously valuable jewelry hostage.

The lawyer for Hagman's Estate has filed legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- which claim Noel Hagman is in possession of a Raj necklace and matching earring set with encrusted diamonds and emeralds.  The Estate claims the jewels were once owned by Larry's mom, actress Mary Martin, and given to Larry.

The Estate lawyer says somehow Noel got her hands on the jewels and won't give them back.  The legal docs say Noel claims someone in the Hagman family gave her the necklace and earrings, but according to the Estate no one in the family cops to it.

The Estate wants the jewels back, and if she refuses, they want her to pay double the value -- the law provides double the value if someone wrongfully holds on to property.  The legal docs don't place a specific value on the items.

Sounds like a good episode of "Dallas."

Someone may have given the jewel to her in a moment of extreme grief and not remembered doing so.

What else could we expect from J.R's granddaughter? She's only keeping the tradition alive.

Let her keep the jewelry for heavens sake!!! She is a granddaughter and if it were about $$$ she would have long sold the stuff by now.

They belonged to her grandmother. I want my granddaughters to have my jewelry. Let her keep them as long as she passes them on and does not sell them.

They probably constitute a tiny percentage of the overall estate. But rip her grandmother's jewels out of her hands and make sure you get every penny.

Disgusting.

This is sad. Emotions get out of hand at times like this. She may feel some connection to the jewelry, or maybe it's just greed. Everyone with heirs should write a will. It's not that hard. You can get teh forms online to get a rough draft of what you want to say and then have a lawyer validate it, it saves a lot of trouble, though some can't be avoided if people ignore the agreement.
