Jimmy Savile - Sir Savile's Alleged Lovechild Makes Claim For Estate

A woman who alleges she is the lovechild of late British entertainer Sir Jimmy Savile has launched a legal bid to lay claim to part of his $12.48 million (£7.8 million) fortune.
The beloved TV star passed away at the age of 84 last October (11) and left the majority of his millions to charity.
But Georgina Ray, 41, claims she is entitled to some of the money and she has undergone a Dna test to prove she is Savile's daughter.
Ray, who bears a striking resemblance to Savile, believes she was born after her mother enjoyed a two-week fling with the Jim'll Fix It presenter.
Savile's niece Amanda MCKenna tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "We have been told she has put in a claim on my Uncle Jimmy's estate and everything is on hold until it's resolved. It's in the hands of the executors of the estate and they are dealing with it. We are waiting to hear the outcome."
