HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A new lawsuit has exposed a rift between two of Paul Newman’s daughters and the late actor’s charitable foundation funded by profits from the Newman’s Own line of food and drink products.

Susan Kendall Newman and Nell Newman filed a lawsuit Tuesday in Stamford, Connecticut. They allege that their own charity organizations are supposed to receive $400,000 a year from the Newman’s Own Foundation under a mandate by their father. But they say the foundation has cut those payments in half. The foundation called the lawsuit “meritless.”

It said the best practices for philanthropic organizations do not allow for perpetual funding allotments to anyone.
