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.

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.
