Donna Summer rest in Peace? “Family at war over her 75 million Fortune”

Donna Summer and daughters

Mimi Sommer, Brookyn Sudano, Amanda Sudano, Donna Summers 

Greed and entitlement, the fight over the dead people’s money.   Individuals who feel they, for whatever reason are entitled for a share money after a friend or member of the family dies.

Donna left her entire  fortune to her husband of nearly 32 years Bruce Sudano 63.    The couple  have two children Brooklyn 31, and Amanda 28.  Donna has an older daughter Mimi 39, from her first marriage  with , German actor Helmut Sommer.

It seems  “Mimi thinks she should get the most because she is first born, but Brooklyn made it clear that she and her sister Amanda should get more.

“Donna was barely gone before Mimi and Brooklyn began battling over how much money they should get,” disclosed an insider.  “Those close to them say that maybe it would be best if Bruce kept all the money for himself, but he’s far too sweet to do that.”

Those close to the family says  Mr Sudano is still grieving, the war between his daughters gives him little peace….

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.

  1. The husband should keep all the money as stated in her will. When the time comes, and he passes away, whatever money remains should be split equally among the children. Are the children so bad off financially that they can’t wait another 20 or so years for their father to die. If she wanted them to have money so soon I would think she would have written it in her will.


    1. I know a LOT of people agree with you Grass Valley Girl….. The reality is, she earned that money. It was her sacrifice, blood, sweat and tears that amassed that fortune… Even if they were bad off financially, Mr Sadano is not obligated make them whole. Its all very sad.
