Courts of the estate say that Marina's allegations have no actual or legal basis "and" is nothing more than a greedy attempt to force an alleged, vague verbal promise made by mother and not herself and not legally identifiable Injury to her.
Lawyers added that even if Marina could prove that Jakobson was her father, she lacks written evidence of his promise to leave her money in his will, and she said she has "ample opportunity as an adult" that her father made his word in writing.
Marina was offered a $ 50,000 settlement by the Jakobson attorneys

"As a successful actress, [she] could be particularly sensitive to her public role and position in popular culture," they added.
