Judge ignores outrage as Bindi Irwin still has to prove father Steve’s death to claim DTWS paycheck

Bindi Irwin

Her father ‘Crocodile Hunter’ father Steve Irwin ’s death shocked the world after he died in a tragic accident in 2006, but Bindi Irwin is being forced to relive the moment she lost her dad.

A judge has demanded the Australian star proves that her dad is indeed dead in order to claim her earnings for Dancing with the Stars .

Despite global outrage that a judge would force the teen to supply this proof when it was headline news at the time, a court is standing firm on its ruling.

Australian Bindi is 17 and so signed a minor’s contract with the ABC show, which requires her parents to agree to give up their rights to her earnings, which at present stand at $230k.

Mother Terri has done so – but a judge at the LA Superior Court has ruled that without the same from Steve ‘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’.

Fans took to social media to express their shock and outrage over the court’s decision and she quickly became a trending topic.
