The sons of actress Audrey Hepburn are reportedly involved in a legal dispute over their late mother’s belongings.
According to TMZ, the Oscar-winning actress left behind a storage locker that was filled with various items – including fashion accessories (such as jewelry, scarves and hats) as well as posters, awards, scripts, and photographs.
In her will, Hepburn left the storage locker as an inheritance for her two sons – Sean Ferrer and Luca Dotti – to share with a 50/50 split. However, the report states that Audrey Hepburn did not identify which son would get which items specifically.
The My Fair Lady actress apparently assumed that her sons would be able to come to an agreement on their own when it came to the distribution of those items.

The storage locker, which is located at the Los Angeles Fine Arts and Wine Storage Company, has now become the focal point of the sons’ dispute since they will reportedly now have to allow a judge to intervene and decide for them.
Half-brothers Sean Ferrer and Luca Dotti were Audrey Hepburn’s only children from her two marriages. Her first marriage to actor and director Mel Ferrer lasted from 1954 to 1968.

Three months after the birth of her first child, Sean Hepburn Ferrer, Audrey started working on what would become one of her most memorable films – Breakfast at Tiffany’s in 1960.
Hepburn and Ferrer divorced in December of 1968 after spending 14 years of marriage together. By the time her divorce was finalized, Hepburn was already in love with the man that would become her second husband – Andrea Dotti.
Hepburn first met the Italian psychiatrist on a cruise in June 1968. Audrey and Andrea became husband and wife in January 1969 and welcomed their son – Luca Dotti – into the world in February of the following year.

Hepburn and Dotti finalized their divorce in 1982. Audrey Hepburn stayed in a relationship with her longtime partner Robert Wolders until she lost her cancer battle on January 20, 1993 at the age of 63.
