Sumner Redstone's Granddaughter Compares Shari to a Vampire in Series of Tweets
Sumner Redstone's attorneys are celebrating a win after a judge on Monday dismissed a petition brought by the mogul's former companion, Manuela Herzer, to regain control of his healthcare directive.
But at least one member of the Redstone family isn't happy with judge David J. Cowan's decision: the granddaughter who tried to join Herzer's legal fight and submitted a declaration that said her "Grumpy" is a prisoner in his own home.
In a series of tweets on Monday, Keryn Redstone made it clear to the social media world that she's not a fan of her aunt — although she does appear to be a fan of gothic fiction author Anne Rice: the tweets include a photo of Shari Redstone with pale skin and blood dripping from her mouth.
The tweets have since been deleted. Text from several are below, along with a screenshot of the image.
