A former accountant for Cuban salsa star Celia Cruz has been ordered by a judge to pay back more than $2.5 million (GBP1.35 million) to the late singer's family after cashing in on her life insurance policy.
Luis Falcon, who was in charge of Cruz's finances during her career, was hauled into court by the star's family after claiming the payout from her insurance company.
But a New Jersey judge ruled on Thursday (25Sep08) that Falcon must hand back the cash to Cruz's sister Gladys Becquer and her step-daughter, Ernestina Moracen-Knight.
In addition to the $2.5 million, Falcon must pay a further $413,000 (GBP223,240) in costs.
Cruz's former manager Omer Pardillo tells PeopleEnEspanol.com, "Thank God everything is getting resolved."
Celia Cruz died from a brain tumour at her home in New Jersey in July 2003, aged 77.
