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.

Steve Irwin's final words have been revealed.
Steve Irwin's final words have been revealed by the only man who witnessed the fatal accident that killed the Australian wildlife expert. Cameraman Justin Lyons opened up about Irwin's final words during an appearance on television show 'Studio 10'. Lyons recalled how they were about eight days into a shoot for a documentary called 'Ocean's Deadliest' in 2006. On the day of Irwin's death, they had been looking for tiger sharks, but ran into a dangerous stingray.

Lyons said he and Irwin began shooting the stingray in chest-deep water. After a couple of minutes, the two stood up and decided to shoot one last shot of Irwin getting behind the stingray.

Sarah Guyard-Guillot, a performer in Cirque du Soleil's "Ka", died tragically during a performance in Las Vegas. The mother of two fell around 50 feet onto the stage below. Despite regulations put in place to protect entertainers and performers, accidents do happen, and deaths whilst performing are more common than one would expect.
Cirque Du Soleil's performance of "Ka" was cut short on Saturday (29th June 2013) following the death of one of the troop's performers Sarah Guyard-Guillot. The 31-year-old performer seems to have slipped from her harness, during a performance in Las Vegas, and fallen around 50 feet to the stage below.

Bindi Irwin is about as dead as David Schwimmer is. Not at all
Steve Irwin daughter. Celebrity death hoaxes are older than the internet itself, but it wasn't until the advert of the online-age that they became such a common occurrence. The latest famous name to travel the web with a deceased certificate next to them is none other than Bindi Irwin, the daughter of the late 'Crocodile Hunter' Steve Irwin.
The 'news' that the teenage daughter of the late wildlife expert and conservationist began to spread rapidly on Thursday (June 13) this week and by the end of the day her name was one of the most searched for items on the web as people sought to get to the bottom of the claim. As you've probably figured out already, the 14-year-old isn't dead, but there is actually a reason why the hoax was able to spread so quickly and cause such confusion in the first place.
The term 'Steve Irwin daughter dies' has been a pretty common search term for the past two days or so, the reason being because Bindi has actually been quite big new lately. She has been promoting her new film, Return to Nim’s Island, as well as showcasing herself to various press outlets as a new, grown-up Bindi. The lil ripper also penned a 1,000-word conservation essay earlier this year, sending it off to Hillary Clinton who, in turn, edited and attempted to published the essay for wider reading. However, due to the heavy editing on Clinton's behalf, Bindi has demanded that the altered version of her essay not be made public. Mix that together with her father's death and the work of a couple of pranksters trying to make the hoax into news and you've got yourself a standard celebrity death hoax.
Now what would a Croc Hunter’s Son possibly want to do as a job when he grows up? Somehow we can’t imagine the late Steve Irwin’s kid sitting around in an office all day, pushing buttons.
So it was great to see pictures of Steve’s son Robert this week dressed just like his famous father, feeding the crocs! In the new images, the 8-year-old is seen in a short-sleeved khaki shirt throwing meat to the baby crocodiles at the ‘Crocoseum’ at the Australia Zoo (his father’s late zoo). The young boy also picked up one of the mini-reptiles and seemed pretty comfortable - maybe a little too comfortable! Steve Irwin gained worldwide fame as television’s favourite ‘Crocodile Hunter’, though tragically died in 2006 after being fatally stunt by a stingray. However, his kids and wife Terri are keeping his passion for animals alive.
To be honest, we’re not surprised that Robert is a natural with the crocodiles. His father stirred up controversy by feeding a 12-foot-long crocodile with one arm, while clutching one-month-old Robert in the other. Child welfare advocates around the world went crazy, but the baby-boy looked like he was having plenty of fun!

The plot doesn't matter (and even Crocodile Dundee took care of that). Irwin is the real show here - everything else just distracts from him. The movie is just another episode of his popular television series. While in the Outback, he gets up close and personal with spiders, lizards, crocodiles, and snakes. Speaking directly to the camera, he gives us a fairly useful education about these different animals while Terri provides additional commentary (think commercial spokesperson). It's all very interesting stuff and Irwin's humor and quick wit is enough to keep the lessons entertaining and the action scenes believable.
