John and Caroline Kennedy have accused the brother of Barbra Streisand of cheating them out of half their interest in a 20-year-old real estate trust established by their mother Jacqueline. The allegations against Sheldon J. Streisand, 64, came to light in court papers Streisand filed to block arbitration the Kennedys requested concerning his handling of the trust’s money. The Kennedys’ demand for arbitration, attached as an exhibit to papers Streisand filed Friday in Manhattan’s State Supreme Court, does not disclose the total value of the trust, but it appears to be worth at least $1 million. Streisand, the older brother of Barbra, is a real estate investor who reportedly specializes in tax shelters for the wealthy.
