A Sydney woman is disputing her father’s final wish in court after she was unable to access millions in inheritance because of failing to fulfil his will.
The 26-year-old’s stockbroker father passed away, leaving his daughter a $12 million estate with instructions around two key clauses.
She gets a job and contributes something to society.
Ms. Brown told A Current Affair she hasn’t worked for years due to her health, including ADHD and high-functioning autism that is preventing her from getting a job.
She also claims funding cuts to the National Disability Insurance Scheme have impacted her ability to get job-ready.
“I have called myself a broke millionaire because I am broke constantly and can’t do anything about it,” Ms. Brown told A Current Affair.
“Can you please stop with the whole point of me getting a job? It’s not going to happen.
“Give me what is rightfully mine. I am suffering.”
Ms. Brown and her wife Lauren are struggling to get by on welfare payments, living in Mount Druitt in Sydney’s west with their one-year-old daughter.
This is a far cry from her former life of luxury, growing up in the wealthy eastern suburbs.
“I understand why these people want me to be a functioning member of society, however, you have to look at my diagnosis and realise that is not going to happen,” she told people enforcing her father’s final wish.
