Lucille Ball awards to go to daughter; love letters will be auctioned

Lucille Ball memorabilia is being split up, according to reports. Love letters between Lucille Ball and her second husband will go up for auction while lifetime achievement awards will go to daughter.

An address book and a photo of TV personality Lucille Ball, part of the "Lucille Ball Memorabilia from The Estate of Gary Morton Will" collection that will soon be auctioned by Heritage Auction Galleries, is displayed in Beverly Hills.

An auction house selling Lucille Ball memorabilia says it is returning the actress's lifetime achievement awards to her daughter.

Heritage Auction Galleries says a deal reached Saturday will return the awards to Lucie Arnaz Luckinbill, Ball's daughter with first husband Desi Arnaz.

A sale of dozens of other Ball-related memorabilia will happen Saturday. Items up for bid include a Rolls Royce and love letters to her second husband, Gary Morton.

The deal announced Saturday ends a legal fight between Luckinbill and Susie Morton, who married Gary Morton after Ball's death in 1989.

A judge agreed to stop the auction Friday but imposed a high bond Luckinbill couldn't meet.

She has said the awards will be displayed in a museum honoring her mother.
