The mother-in-law of Colombian-American actor John Leguizamo is headed to court after allegedly hiding the pending $17.5 million sale of her San Remo apartment from her estranged stepdaughter.

Rona Maurer, whose daughter Justine is married to Leguizamo, is being accused of breaking an agreement by not informing her stepdaughter, Lisa Bishop, of the sale, according to DNAinfo.

Bishop’s lawyer, Lawrence Silverman, has now filed a petition in Manhattan Surrogate’s Court claiming he only found out about the apartment sale through a friend in real estate.

Maurer, 77, is required by a stipulation agreement to give Bishop 50 percent of the net profits of the sale.

“As Mrs. Maurer has breached the stipulation multiple times and has declared her displeasure with it, there is every reason to believe that she will continue to violate it by keeping the terms of the sale of the apartment a secret, not informing Mr. Silverman of the closing and not paying the beneficiaries and law fees out of the proceeds of the sale,” Bishop writes.
