A few weeks ago the China Blog marked the death of Nina Wang, Asia’s richest woman. As expected, Wang’s passing is hardly the end of her dramatic story. After her husband was declared dead in 1999, Wang and her father-in-law battled over the estate, which was then estimated at $3 billion. That clash centered around two competing wills. Now the fortune, which has grown to about $4.2 billion, is once again the subject of dueling wills. One names as beneficiary a property developer who was once a feng shui master. Another says the assets should go a charitable foundation that is part of Wang’s Chinachem Group. Perhaps “Little Sweetie,” as Wang was known, couldn’t resist the prospect of more legal drama.
