Irwin is a finalist in the ABC dancing competition which ends on Tuesday (November 24th).
Bindi Irwin paid an emotional tribute to her late father 'Crocodile Hunter' Steve Irwin during the first part of 'Dancing With The Stars’' two night finale on Monday evening. Irwin and her partner Derek Hough danced a freestyle routine to Leona Lewis’ ‘Footprints in the Sand’, scoring a perfect 30 from the judges and advancing on to night two.
Bindi's contract was submitted to a court as she is a minor, but the judge has apparently been living in a cave for the last decade.
She’s dazzled TV audiences with her performances on ‘Dancing With The Stars’ over the last few months, but a legal issue is preventing Bindi Irwin from claiming her payment. A judge has reportedly ruled that she must prove her father, Steve Irwin, is actually dead before receiving the money.
A report from TMZ suggests that a Superior Court Judge in a Los Angeles court has stated that Bindi must provide evidence of her father’s death before she is paid. Her contract for payment, estimated to be $230,000, was handed to a judge as a matter of law and procedure, as Irwin is a minor at 17.
