The death of Andrea Greenberg last October was declared an opioid overdose, as The Real Deal reported, however, her friends and sister remain suspicious over the circumstances, particularly in light of an ensuing legal battle with Greenberg’s long-time partner, Alejandro Aparicio.

According to court documents, Aparicio allegedly withdrew $10,000 from Greenberg’s bank account the day she died and had withdrawn almost $585,000 in total over the next month, according to the Miami Herald.

Ten days after Greenberg’s death, Aparicio petitioned to probate a will to make him the sole beneficiary and executor of her estate, worth more than $1 million. Greenberg’s sister, Valerie, filed a response challenging the validity of the will which included testimony from two friends noting that Greenberg was in Orlando, not Miami-Dade County, on the day she supposedly signed her will. Aparicio, without comment, withdrew his request two days later, the Herald reported.

When Valerie was appointed the representative of her sister’s estate in February, she conducted an estate inventory, which was court-ordered and filmed, and revealed several pieces of expensive jewelry was missing, including a Rolex watch and Cartier bracelet, as well as all of Greenberg’s professional and personal records and papers. Aparicio said he “cleared out” all documents after her death. Valerie Greenberg is now seeking to force him out of the house he shared with her sister.

“I am doing this to honor my sister’s life,” she told the Herald. “Alejandro and Andrea were never married. He says he cared about my sister, but his actions say the opposite. My sister deserves better. Andrea will be my sister forever, and I will not stop working for her until I get the truth.”

Aparicio has filed motions supporting his right to withdraw the funds from Greenberg’s bank account as well as recover $700,000, which he says he spent on their home renovation. He did not respond to the Herald’s requests for comment. [Miami Herald]Erin Hudson
