More King family drama going down.

The Martin Luther King Jr. estate has asked a judge to force Dr. King’s daughter to give up the late civil rights leader’s Nobel Peace Prize and his famed “traveling” bible.

The complaint against Bernice King was filed Friday in an Atlanta court by her father’s estate, which is controlled by her brothers, Martin Luther King III and Dexter King.

The lawsuit, according to the AP, says Martin Luther King Jr.’s heirs in 1995 assigned their rights to property inherited from the civil rights icon to the Estate of Martin Luther King Jr. Inc. The lawsuit says Bernice King has “secreted and sequestered” the medal and Bible in violation of that agreement.

In a statement, Bernice King says that her brothers want to sell the medal and Bible to a private buyer and that she is against that.
