Attorneys representing the father and older daughter of the late actor Kristoff St. John told a judge Thursday that a condominium the daytime series star owned before his death is in escrow.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Deborah Christian directed that a petition seeking her approval of the sale be filed with her no later than Nov. 1.
Christian scheduled another hearing for Dec. 3.
The actor’s mother lived in the condominium. St. John resided in a separate rental property.
The judge also extended the authority of St. John’s father, Christopher, and daughter, Paris. to continue acting as temporary special co-administrators pending the December hearing. She said that perhaps by December only one estate administrator will be needed.
Neither Christopher St. nor Paris St. John — who was born while the actor was married to boxer Mia St. John — attended the hearing.
Kristoff’s father says his son’s will, handwritten by the actor, states that Kristoff wanted his personal savings and money to be shared between Paris St. John and her half sister, Lola, at a split of 25 percent and 75 percent, respectively.
Dated Aug. 12, 2017, the will also requests that Kristoff’s father be executor of his estate.
Relations between Paris St. John and her grandfather have been testy at times been since the actor’s death. In June, she filed a petition challenging the validity of the will. She has also maintained a neutral third party should administer the estate.
The judge has not decided on the will’s validity.
St. John, who played Neil Winters on “The Young and the Restless” for almost 30 years, died of hypertrophic heart failure Feb. 3 at his Woodland Hills home at age 52.
