There has always been a lot of discomfort and in-fighting within the family because of the huge family fortune. It has been reported that Michael and his brother actually threw out the two other siblings, Daniela and Ginter, from the company way back in 2003. But this battle for the family riches was marred by the untimely death of their brother, Joachim, in 2008. The family has claimed that Joachim’s wealth has been donated to various charities.
