More King family drama going down.

The Martin Luther King Jr. estate has asked a judge to force Dr. King’s daughter to give up the late civil rights leader’s Nobel Peace Prize and his famed “traveling” Bible.

The complaint against Bernice King was filed Friday in an Atlanta court by her father’s estate, which is controlled by her brothers, Martin Luther King III and Dexter King.

The lawsuit, according to the AP, says Martin Luther King Jr.’s heirs in 1995 assigned their rights to property inherited from the civil rights icon to the Estate of Martin Luther King Jr. Inc. The lawsuit says Bernice King has “secreted and sequestered” the medal and Bible in violation of that agreement.

In a statement, Bernice King says that her brothers want to sell the medal and Bible to a private buyer and that she is against that.

  1. Really, they should sell those items and move on. Dr. King is one of the most overrated figures in our history. It’s kinda sad that the media is giving this story so much attention. Those heirlooms are lost and they need to be in a museum somewhere. The King Family is so not relevant in today’s society.

    Let us hope Bernice prevails in court. This is a personal and cherished heirloom which can never be replaced and honored more than by a caring relative. Not by a relative out for personal monetary gain. BROTHERS get a real job! Know the value…. “PRICELESS” Keep them in prayer !

    The brothers King (Dexter and Martin III) should first be recognized for peace marches and rallies, boycotts and demonstrations, preaching sermons, speak publicly at more than 2,500 engagements, travel more than 6 million miles around the world on behalf of the civil rights movement … then they can sell their own SHIT!

  4. How would you or could you expect today’s younger generation to have respect for Dr.King when his own children do not respect him or his legacy? How Tragic, all involved parties should simply Grow the f___ up!!!!!

    This is really sad. Why would you want to sell what your father worked so hard at achieving?? I stand behind Rev. Dr. Bernice A. King 100% – wholeheartedly. I am so sorry she is dealing with all of this. The young men have no idea that they are making themselves look really bad. Greed will kill us all….smh….signed a disappointed young person from Detroit, living in ATL

  6. Why would anybody think MLK’s children are any different from other Pastor’s children. They just have a disagreement no big deal..stop making this something it’s not…Like as if you people get along with ALL your relatives..get a grip & a LIFE people!

    With all the world watching the King’s children grow-up, with all the added in-house values taught by Dr. King . How dare you disgrace his legacy with fueds over money.
    Children through internet searches, want to know more about Dr. King and pops up your names in a negative light; in the shadows of the torch. Dr. Martin Luther King is a inspiration to so many; none of his words and his deeds inspire you enough to handle whatever situation in peace and love.
    This is descipble behavior. I am ashamed for you. Dr. King taught you all, how to handle your disposition with brotherly and sisterly love. You should apologize to America for your imporable behaviors. You should promise to the Nation a compromise . You should always have a mediator reminding you:” What would Dr. Martin Luther King do”. Please never allow this public dishonor again.

    satan playing with their minds and they are falling for his tricks.They keep saying they love their mother and father I do not see real love I see green love.If their father was not in the public eye what would they do for money.Their father fought for justice they are fighting each other.

    I was disgusted with the portrayal of MLK on party flyers, but I took his daughter’s thoughts and outrage about the issue with a grain of salt because she and her brothers have been arguing and fighting with one another over money since at least 2008, MLK ‘s children are a disgrace to the Legacy that their parents built!

    Here we go again!
    These “children” need to feel ashamed of themselves. It is always about money!
    They need to go to work to support themselves and their lifestyles, including Bernice, and stop depending on their father’s legacy for their living. They have made a mess of all that has been handed to them.

    Pay attention to the resting place of their parents! Last time I was there it was a hot mess!
