Alan Thicke‘s widow has won a small victory in her legal battle with her stepsons over their father’s estate.
Singer Robin Thicke and his brother Brennan have been trying to keep Tanya Callau from challenging the terms of her prenuptial agreement that was signed in 2005.
The brothers claimed their stepmom had threatened to go public with family secrets if she didn’t receive a bigger cut of the actor’s estate.
Alan’s will entitled her to 25 percent of his personal effects, a $500,000 life insurance policy, and permission to live at his California home as long as she agreed to maintain the property.
The judge overseeing the family dispute has since sided with Tanya, dismissing the Thicke brothers’ petition, ruling there is no evidence to suggest their stepmother is planning to sue over Alan’s will.
TMZ is reporting Robin and Brennan have been given the option of filing a new claim against Tanya, as long as they provide “more specifics” to back up their argument.
Alan Thicke, best known for his role as Jason Seaver on the show Growing Pains, passed away in December after suffering a heart attack. He was 69.
