Liza told Daily Variety columnist Army Archerd:. She won't move. I've been supporting her forever. I did exactly what my father asked me to do. And now we can't go into escrow because she won't move. I am willing to give her a happy life. Lee's lawyer said at the time : "Forcing this frail, elderly woman to move at this point in her life will no doubt be the death of her.
