The late superstar left his estate to
sisters Melanie and Yioda.
According to The
Sun, Kenny Goss, 59, his former partner of 15 years, and Fadi
Fawaz, 45, who discovered Michael's body, are challenging the will.
Goss, an American businessman, claims
he helped Michael through hard times.

together for many years and Kenny looked after him so much. He

Fawaz, who was with Michael for five
years, has told outlets that he's broke.
