Family Feud Erupts Over Mary Kennedy's Death
Even in death, she' s not at peace. Bobby Kennedy Jr. is reportedly now feuding with the family of his late wife Mary, who committed suicide earlier this week.
"Family At War," the New York Daily News says today, adding, "Feud Explodes."
The paper says Kennedy actually kicked two of Mary's grieving sisters out of the house in Bedford, New York when they came to retrieve some of her possessions.
Even the site of Mary's last resting place is causing friction. She'll be buried in Hyannisport, Massachusetts, near the Kennedy family compound, prompting a friend of Mary's to fume:
"Hyannisport? You mean the place from which she had been virtually banned for the past two years?"
Bobby Kennedy, who left his wife and is now dating actress Cheryl Hines, is breaking his silence, telling The New York Times that Mary lost a lifelong battle with depression.
"A lot of times I don't know how she made it through the day. She was in a lot of agony for a lot of her life," he said. "She was a good person who did not deserve the kind of pain she had to live with."
Today's New York Post headline says it all about Mary's final days: "Broke, Lonely and Afraid."
Only last month, American Express served her with a lawsuit over an unpaid bill totalling $32,624.
