NY Post: Warren Buffett fires granddaughter

September 7, 2006 --
AN infuriated Warren Buffett
has renounced one of his granddaughters - telling her she is no longer
his relative "legally or emotionally" because she took part in a
documentary about the lives of the very rich.
Nicole Buffett, the adopted daughter of Buffett's son Peter and biological daughter of Peter's ex-wife Mary, was featured in Jamie Johnson and Nick Kurzon's
documentary, "The One Percent," which debuted at the Tribeca Film
Festival this year and is a follow-up to Johnson's "Born Rich."
Enraged that Nicole not only participated in the documentary, but also
plugged it on National Public Radio and "Oprah," Buffett wrote Nicole
an "angry letter" two weeks ago telling her she was no longer part of
his life, a source tells Page Six.
Buffett wrote, "I have not
emotionally or legally adopted you as a grandchild, nor have the rest
of my family adopted you as a niece or a cousin."
