MLK Jr.'s Daughter

My Brothers Are SELLING OUT

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s daughter says she's being forced to hand over two of her father's prized possessions ... all because her brothers just want to make a quick buck.

Bernice King reacted to a Georgia judge's ruling last week that she must hand over MLK's Nobel Peace Prize and his Bible while she continues a legal war with her brothers Dexter King and MLK III ... who control the King Estate.

Lawyers for the brothers have said they have a lucrative offer to sell both items -- but Bernice made it clear she's against pawning off the items -- "They're very sacred, not just to me, but to a lot of people. I just don't believe, morally, that you sell it."

The prize and Bible are supposed to be held in a safe deposit box until the matter is settled, but listen to Bernice -- she doesn't sound like she's in a hurry to hand 'em over.
