According to New York Daily News on Thursday, June 09, 2011, Leona Helmsley’s pampered pooch named “Trouble” expired and was later cremated.

Apparently, Trouble the dog died last December 2010 but was kept secret from the public in which the trust fund now goes to Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust.

As told by a source to the report, the rich dog went blind and had health problems when she departed at the age of 12, or 84 in dog years.

When Leona Helmsley was still alive, she was noted to have loved “Trouble” so much that she cut several grandchildren out of her will entirely.

Helmsley even left her beloved dog $12 million but a judge trimmed it down to $2 million later, in which over $100,000 a year is being spent for Trouble’s needs and tight security.

When the so-called Queen of Mean passed away in 2007, “Trouble” had been living at a Helmsley hotel in Sarasota, Florida, where the rich dog retired.
