According to The New York Times, the writer's half-sister, Nina Straight and nephew, Burr Steers are contesting his will.
Vidal left his entire estate to Harvard University.
Straight, who is also a writer claimed that Vidal was fearful of being exposed to a political rival, conservative columnist William F. Buckley, for his "Jerry Sandusky acts", the New York Daily News reported.
Steers also revealed that he knew that Buckley possessed a file, which Gore feared and it would make sense if the material was about him having underage sex.
He added that Gore usually spent a lot of time in Bangkok and also had a very weird take on the abuse perpetrated by Catholic priests, as he would say that the young guys involved were hustlers who were sending signals.
