Liza Minnelli's stepmother Lee Minnelli has been given the legal right to stay in her Beverly Hills home - even though the CABARET star has sold the property.

Minnelli inherited the mansion when her father Vincente Minnelli died in 1986 and has recently tried to sell the place even though her stepmother still lives there.

The singer almost completed the sale of the property before backing out and the potential new owners sought legal counsel to take charge of the home. But now a legal arbitrator has decreed that the sale can go through but only after the current resident moves out or dies.
