Billionaire Abe Hirschfeld abused by his own son Elie till death
Abe’s real estate empire — once valued at $1 billion — was in the red at the time of his death.
Rachel, 67, shuddered as she looked at the pictures of the allegedly battered patriarch, who famously incited a staff rebellion when he took over the New York Post for two weeks, and ran seven failed political campaigns using the nickname “Honest Abe.”
In a statement, Elie, 63, strongly denied the “baseless” claims, which he called “another ploy in my sister’s regrettable, years-long campaign to extract exorbitant sums from me.”
He added, “I loved my father.”
