It occurs not only in the best families, but also in the richest. More than two years after the death of East Flemish bingo and real estate king Willy Michiels (82) – one of the most controversial businessmen our country has ever known – his daughters Veerle and Mieke are still fighting a dogged inheritance war. In addition to a classic car collection and even a water castle, father Willy amassed at least 243 million euros during his life. Easy to divide between the two you would think, but not so for the sisters – who literally can’t even go through one door anymore.
