Even the Very Social Billionaire
family can squabble.
Can’t $4.9 billion make a family happy? Mogul Marvin Davis, the Southampton social force and onetime owner of 20th Century Fox and the Beverly Hills Hotel, died last year. But society sources say that the family isn’t getting along. Exhibit A: Dana, the youngest daughter, was to be married in Hawaii the weekend of July 23, and as of press time, her sister Nancy planned to skip the wedding. “When I asked Nancy if she was going, she just shrugged like it wasn’t important,’’ says a West Coast source, who also notes that of all the kids, Nancy is closest to Barbara, the mother, who was also said not to be going. “Nancy isn’t attending because she has young twins, and the wedding was moved at the last minute from Malibu to Hawaii,” says family rep Mike Sitrick, who dismissed the idea that Barbara was going to miss it. Apparently, she had had an injury but was determined to make it.
