Court Won’t Give Bindi Irwin ‘DWTS’ Money Until She Proves Dad Is Dead

Bindi Irwin’s DTWS contract just got rejected because apparently the judge doesn’t believe that her dad, Steve Irwin, is dead.

Uh, where have you been, law bro? They practically had the sting ray that did it in handcuffs.

Because Baby Irwin is well, you know, a baby, lawyers for the show submitted a minor’s contract to an L.A. Superior Court judge. It’s required for minors and she’s only 17. Her mom Terri also signed a form stating she relinquishes all rights to any money her daughter will make on the show. The judge also wants the same from her dad, which would be a little hard without a goddamn necromancer.

The judge said without proof of Steve Irwin giving up his rights to Bindi’s money:

 “The court is unable to find that it is in the best interest of the minor to be bound by the terms of the contract.”

What, you think his corpse is gonna crawl out of the ground and make a grab for her cash? Way to rub it in, judge.

Though honestly, we are talking about the kind of dough my undead ass would make a zombified grab at. Check out what kind of Dancing With the Stars money is being thrown at this kid.

— a guarantee of $125k

— by making it to weeks 3 and 4 she gets an additional $10k per week

— week 5 gets her another $15,000

— weeks 6 and 7 she gets $20k a week

— weeks 8 and 9 she gets $30k a week

— and if she makes it to 10 and 11 she gets $50,000 a week


Lawyers will do whatever it takes to sort this mess out. Bindi has so far made it through week 8, so that’s a cool $230k, and it doesn’t look like she’s going anywhere anytime soon.
