I didn't get my copy of this week's National Equirer yet, but shaky source Contact Music says, Spike's brother Christopher is furious the director won't let him sell a piece of land he is legally entitled to so he can avoid being evicted from his home...
Christopher claims he has been forced to go on welfare and is being thrown out of his Brooklyn, New York apartment because his brother refuses to help him financially. He claims his brother is controlling the rights to a valuable piece of land set aside by their grandmother, which was to be divided equally among the five Lee siblings. Christopher tells American publication National Enquirer, "I asked him...advance me the value of the land, bro." He says the 49-year-old MALCOLM X director replied, "I'm not giving you a dime." The famed director hits back at the claims saying, "My brother's statements to the Enquirer are falsehoods. Nonetheless, my siblings and I still love him. "I'm not the first nor will I be the last public figure who will be accused by a sibling of not doing enough. My question is, 'When is enough enough?
UPDATE: I got my copy of the Enquirer and Chris calls Spike a clown, a fake and a phoney. But get this, the grandmother who gave them the property ain't even dead yet. Chris approached Spike at the Grandma's 100 birthday celebration party with the proposition.
