Tony Bennett’s two daughters have filed a lawsuit against their brother, accusing him of mishandling and not fully disclosing their father’s assets as trustee of the late singer’s estate.

Filed in New York on Wednesday by Antonia and Johanna Bennett, the lawsuit alleges that D’Andrea “Danny” Bennett did not properly account for all the proceeds from this year’s sale of Tony Bennett’s catalog and certain image rights to Iconoclast, a brand development firm.

The court documents state that it’s unclear which music assets and other property were included in the sale, as the sisters claim they have not received specific details despite repeated requests.

Danny Bennett, who was Tony Bennett’s manager and oversees the family trust, did not respond to requests for comment on the lawsuit. The lawsuit also names another brother, Daegal “Dae” Bennett, and Tony’s widow, Susan Benedetto.

The legal action further alleges that Danny Bennett benefited personally from transactions involving Tony Bennett’s memorabilia and other assets managed by the family trust and Benedetto Arts LLC.

Antonia and Johanna Bennett are seeking unspecified equitable relief, along with a comprehensive accounting and inventory of the trust. They are requesting Danny Bennett to provide detailed records, including receipts, expenses, and tax returns.

The court filing criticizes the information provided so far by Danny and his legal team, stating that it has raised more questions than answers regarding Tony Bennett’s financial affairs and assets.
