Addendum: An update of December 5, 2006. – According to the Daily News, “Brooke Astor’s son was cleared yesterday of
abusing her – but he was forced to return $11 million in cash, jewelry
and art to his 104-year-old mom…An October settlement stripped him of the right to care for his mother,
whose well-being is now overseen by confidante Annette de la Renta,
while JP Morgan Chase minds her millions.”
The New York Daily News has reported today that socialite, Brooke Astor,
the subject of a blog article here, who turned 104 in April, reportedly is a victim of elder abuse, and now wears torn nightgowns and sleeps on a filthy couch.
If the court documents, submitted by her grandson, Philip Marshall, are true, then this is an extremely sad situation for a lovely, frail, lady.

P.S. An update in October of 2006 – Philanthropist Brooke Astor’s son has been permanently removed as guardian of her multimillion-dollar estate, according to a settlement announced in court yesterday.
The agreement allows the 104-year-old Astor’s court-appointed guardians, Annette de la Renta and JPMorgan Chase, to remain in place, instead of her son, Anthony Marshall.
