The kids of late reggae star Peter Tosh are at war over more than $2 million in royalties from his estate, according to a new Manhattan lawsuit.
Tosh’s daughter, Aldrina McIntosh, claims in the suit that younger sister Niambe McIntosh hasn’t paid her or their other eight siblings a cent in royalties for the past five years.
The estate of the famed “Bob Marley and the Wailers’’ musician — who wrote the lyrics to such reggae classics as “Get Up, Stand Up” — rakes in $150,000 to $300,000 annually, according to the surrogate court case.
The money was supposed to be split evenly among the 10 siblings annually after Tosh, who was born Winston McIntosh, was murdered by a gang of robbers in Jamaica in 1987.
Niambe, Tosh’s youngest child, took over her father’s estate in 2009. It had previously been run by a court-appointed lawyer because Tosh died without a will.
At the time, there was only $280,000 in the estate’s coffers, but Aldrina believes that her younger sister is sitting on another $1.7 million, according to court papers.
Niambe told The Post on Tuesday that the amount was grossly exaggerated but declined to reveal the balance.
