According to TMZ, however, Howe, who has no living direct relatives following her husband’s 2003 death, did not have a relationship with the stepchildren filing the lawsuit. Despite being estranged, the two stepchildren are entitled to file a wrongful death lawsuit under California law. 

The estranged stepchildren, who are reportedly attempting to gather evidence to prove that they had a relationship with Howe, will not have access to her property. TMZ reports Howe had a trust with millions in assets that will be given to various charities.
