Steve McNair Will, or Lack Thereof, Sparks Dispute

by at . Comments

It appears murdered NFL star Steve McNair left a mess behind, and not just because of his affair with Sahel Kazemi that was revealed upon his death.

A legal fight over the star's estate seems to be taking shape, as Steve McNair did not leave a will - at least according to his wife, Mechelle McNair.

Mechelle has been named administrator of his estate. She's named her two sons, Tyler and Trenton, as heirs. But here's where it gets weird.

McNair has two older sons from a prior relationship - Steven McNair, Jr. and Steven O'Brian Koran McNair. Mechelle did not list either as an heir.

Under Tennessee law, Mechelle McNair, as his wife, gets 1/3 of the estate and the remaining 2/3 is split evenly among the deceased's heirs.

Why Mechelle failed to mention the other two kids, no one knows.

There are reports she's not convinced Steve McNair fathered the two, even though one received $500 a month in child support from the quarterback.

Meanwhile, the late star's agent is being coy about the possibility a Steve McNair will really does exist after all. So we'll have to stay tuned there.

McNair was shot and killed early July by his lover, Sahel Kazemi, in a gruesome murder-suicide in Nashville. Mechelle did not know of the affair.

Friday, Adrian Gilliam Jr. was arrested in connection with the killings, having allegedly sold Kazemi the gun used to take McNair's life a day earlier.
