Ringling Heiress Sues Brother After Assault at Shiva

When it comes to the Jewish family behind Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey, the real circus is taking place outside the big top.

In a lawsuit that involves a rabbi, secret gay lovers and an alleged assault at a shiva, Ringling heiress Karen Feld is suing her brother, Kenneth, for $110 million, claiming she sustained brain damage after he ordered her forcibly removed from a shiva minyan for their aunt.

Karen Feld, 63, says she suffered severe injuries when Kenneth’s bodyguards threw her out of her aunt’s Washington, DC, penthouse, then beat her. (They also mistreated her pet poodle, the suit alleges.) Kenneth Feld may be involved in the “Jewish mafia,” the suit claims, and could also be linked to money laundering and murder.
