LOS ANGELES – The daughter of “The Crocodile Hunter” is in a battle with a judge over her father’s death.
Bindi Irwin, who has become a fan favorite on the show “Dancing with the Stars,” recently had her contract rejected by a judge.
Along with the contract was a signed form by Irwin’s mother, saying that she would give up all rights to any money that her daughter makes on the show.
However, the judge denied the contract, saying she needs the same release from Irwin’s father.
TMZ says that without proof of Steve Irwin giving up his rights to Bindi’s money, “the court is unable to find that it is in the best interest of the minor to be bound by the terms of the contract.”
Lawyers told TMZ that they will do whatever it takes for the judge to approve the contract.
So far, Bindi Irwin has earned $230,000 on the show.
