Ex-Hooker Estate Fight Ends: Judge Awards Ravi Kumra's Daughters $1,800 A Month

  on

Two young girls are the beneficiaries of a 66-year-old Silicon Valley tycoon’s estate.

Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Thomas Cain ruled on Tuesday that the 9-and 7-year-old daughters of slain millionaire Ravi Kumra and one-time prostitute Keila Goggins are each entitled to an allowance of $1,800 a month, the Associated Press reports.

"It is what he would have wanted," Goggins, 40, told the San Jose Mercury News. "It's a wonderful start to making sure that my girls can get their colleges taken care of and their needs, so they would have no limitation on where they wanted to go and what they wanted to be."

In April, the girls testified that Kumra, or "Pappi," as they called him, was their father. They said he took them to Disneyland and wrote them emails saying "we love you lots." The judge ruled this as "clear and convincing evidence" that they were his children.

Kumra died of asphyxiation on Nov. 30 at his Monte Sereno mansion after suspected gang members with alleged ties to the tech investor’s prostitute girlfriends broke in, bound and gagged him and made off with cash, jewelry and rare coins. His wife was also beaten in the attack. Five people have been charged in the case, AP reports.

The incident provided a glimpse into Kumra’s lifestyle, which was reportedly filled with prostitute girlfriends, illegitimate children and an ex-wife who continued to live with him in a 7,000-square-foot estate since their 2010 divorce, which has been called a “sham” to hide assets from creditors.

In 2001, Kumra met Goggins, who worked at the Kit Kat Guest Ranch and Sagebrush Ranch – two legal brothels -- located in Carson City, Nev. Shortly after, Kumra reportedly volunteered to father her children.

"He said that they would be 'beautiful children,' and because he was intellectually gifted, he said that the children would be 'smart,' " Goggins said, according to court records. After the children were born, Kumra paid for Goggins’ home initially in a gated community and now in a rented house.  

During the trial, Kumra’s two grown daughters argued that the two small girls were the result of a “sperm donor” agreement and weren’t entitled to the estate.

Goggins' lawyer argued that the sperm donor agreement was a fraud so Kumra’s wife wouldn’t know the children came from “sexual relations" and didn’t need to support them financially.

Despite Kumra’s apparent hedonistic lifestyle, punctuated by his violent death, Goggins maintains that he loved their daughters.

"I'm not a gold digger," she said. "I'm not trying to extort money from his estate. I'm anything from that. I love my girls. He loved our girls. This is what he would have wanted for them."
