BARRY WHITE'S girlfriend, two ex-wives and family are embroiled in a bitter battle over the late singer's fortune, because the superstar never made a will.

KATHERINE DENT, White's partner of the past 14 years is claiming a big cut of the soul star's millions - but his family, are disputing he fathered Dent's daughter BARRIANA ICY WHITE, banned her from the singer's funeral and are trying to stop her getting any of his money.

The 37-year-old says, "I was his last love and no one can take that away."

White's first and second wives MARY and GOLDEAN have also staked claims for a share of his cash.

White - who died of kidney failure in Los Angeles in July (03), aged 58 - fathered at least eight children.
