The death of Wall Street bigwig Lionel Pincus this weekend has left those close to him embroiled in a feud over his estate. In August, Pincus’ two sons accused their father’s girlfriend, Princess Firyal of Jordan, of impeding their efforts to sell his 7,000-square-foot duplex at the Pierre, the proceeds of which they planned to give to charity. According to court documents, Firyal, 62, was to inherit the apartment on East 61st Street if it had not been sold by the time of Pincus’ death. The case is pending, but the unit is still currently on the market for $35 million. [NYDN]
