This article states that Hong Kong's richest woman, Nina Wang, died from ovarian cancer in April 2007 at age 69. But even in death, the woman known for her double braids and miniskirts and nicknamed "Little Sweetie," creates a stir. Wang, who had no children, left behind a $4.2 billion fortune, now being fought over in a Hong Kong court by four parties, including a charitable organization, a feng shui master, Hong Kong's legal chief, who is looking into the matter of unpaid taxes, and Wang's father-in-law, Wang Din-shin.
