It’s been a long couple of years for Amanda, Gabrielle, and Jeffrey Brooks. First their father, Oscar-winning songwriter Joseph Brooks, was charged with molesting thirteen young women. Then their brother was charged with second-degree murder in the death of his girlfriend Sylvie Cachay at the Soho House. Then dad Joseph killed himself in May. And today we learn that the three innocent Brooks kids were left out of Joseph’s will. What was left of his estate, somewhere between $100,000 and $250,000, went instead to his personal trainer, a woman named Danielle Radosti. Of course, Brooks owed $2 million to the victims of his alleged crimes as the result of a civil case last year, so there may be no money at all. So maybe it’s just better to be done with all that.
