President Donald Trump's older sister was sued for $392,000 after a leak in the condo she owned in New York City's Trump Palace ended up flooding her neighbor's place. 

According to lawsuit documents obtained by TMZ, back in March of 2017, Elizabeth Trump Grau lived in Trump Palace when the building had a major plumbing issue. Avraham and Rachel Dishi said that their condo got messed up after Grau left the shower in her master bathroom running.

After the front desk of the hotel got a concerned phone call from one of the residents of the building saying that she could hear the sound of water flowing inside the walls of her condo, the source of the leak was traced to Grau's pad. The leak ended up damaging the condo of at least one resident of the building. 

Avraham and Rachel were forced to file a claim to the tune of $392,544.94 with their insurer, the Cincinnati Insurance Company, who are now suing Trump's sister for negligence with the hope that the court will order her to cough up the losses incurred by the company.

Grau has not been in the limelight as much as her brother, who, of course, is currently serving as the 45th president of the United States. As a result, not much is known about her. 

She graduated from the same private school that Trump attended through seventh grade, Kew-Forest School in Forest Hills, Queens. She married film producer James Grau in 1989 and worked as an executive for Chase Manhattan Bank, before retiring to Florida.

In 2017, Grau sold her oceanfront Westhampton Beach home for $3.8M, Newsday reported. 

“She was very nice, a lovely woman,” Sarita Silver of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty, the agent who brokered the sale, said of Grau. “They weren’t really using [the house] anymore. So I think that was the primary reason for selling.”
