The mother of Johnny Lewis' daughter is embroiled in a legal battle with the late Sons Of Anarchy star's family over the youngster's inheritance. The troubled actor plunged to his death in 2012 after killing his elderly landlady and he left behind a young daughter, Culla Mae, three, who he fathered with his Sons Of Anarchy co-star Diane Marshall-Green. Marshall-Green, also known as Diane Gaeta, claims Lewis' father, Michael, is refusing to recognise Culla Mae as the sole heir to Lewis' $41,000 (£25,625) fortune and she has now filed legal documents to have him removed from his post as administrator of the estate, according to editors at TMZ.com. She also claims Michael has refused to hand over $37,000 (£23,125) in child support payments owed by the actor. Lewis did not have a will at the time of his death and Marshall-Green alleges his parents have refused to acknowledge the little girl as his heir. Marshall-Green claims Lewis signed a declaration of paternity before his death, and the actor is listed as the father on the girl's birth certificate. Lewis passed away in September, 2012 when he accidentally fell from the roof of his Los Angeles home. Police believe he died shortly after killing his 81-year-old landlady and dismembering her cat.
