Cape Town - A bitter feud over money is tearing murdered underworld boss Cyril Beeka’s family apart.

Despite leaving a healthy trust fund of R5.2m for his eldest daughters, Megan, 23, and Laura, 18, very little money is being paid out to them, reports the Sunday World newspaper.

According to them, the Megan and Laura Trust is under the management of Beeka’s younger brother Edward and Cape Town radio Goodhope FM DJ Dino Michael.

Megan and Laura however, live on a measly R3 000 a month and have to get by on hand outs. Despite desperate pleas for more money, their cries fall on deaf ears.

Megan told Sunday World that even her 21st birthday present from her father, a BMW 330i, was taken by Edward as a payment to underworld boss Radovan Krejcir.

Sources close to the family say life has been tough for Beeka’s family since his death.
