The late real-estate billionaire Leona Helmsley has left a $12 million trust fund to her dog.

In her will, she also leaves millions to her brother, who's charged with taking care of the beloved pooch, a white Maltese named Trouble.

Helmsley's chauffeur gets $100,000.

But two of her grandchildren are left out of the will altogether for reasons she writes "that are known to them."

Trouble will have it good even when she dies. The will directs that her remains are to be buried next to Helmsley's in the family mausoleum.

Helmsley ordered that all her homes and belongings be sold. They're reportedly worth billions. The money is to be given to the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust.
