After months of high-profile courtroom battles, lawyers for the estranged wife of late Los Gatos artist Thomas Kinkade and his live-in girlfriend have struck a deal in the multimillion dollar estate.
However, The San Jose Mercury News reports that it’s unclear who will inherit Kinkade’s Monte Serrano mansion and his warehouse of paintings.
The quarrel between Kinkade’s girlfriend Amy Pinto and his wife Nanette Kinkade began shortly after the 54-year-old artist’s death in April. Kinkade began dating Pinto after a legal separation from his wife of 28 years.
At the heart of the dispute were two disputed handwritten wills produced by Pinto that said Kinkade would leave her $10 million and his Monte Sereno home.
In a statement, lawyers say the women kept the artist’s message of “love, spirituality and optimism” in their amicable resolution.
