Not only are Tom Petty’s family members fighting over his estate, but they are now fighting over salad dressing as well.
According to reports, Petty’s widow and trustee of his estate, Dana, has accused his daughters from his previous marriage, Adria and Annakim, of attempting to use his image for the creation of merchandise.
Page Six reported that Dana took legal action. “Adria wanted to authorize Tom’s name and likeness to be used to promote products akin to Paul Newman, whose face adorns bottles of salad dressing and so on,” it states. “But Tom would never have permitted such a thing, he never ‘sold out’ while he was alive and refused to do any such thing despite numerous opportunities. Dana is certain Tom’s fans would also find it a sad perversion of Tom’s legacy.”
