Dance Dj Steve Aoki and his actress sister Devon have won a long-running legal battle with their estranged stepmother over their late father's fortune.

The stars have been embroiled in a court fight with Keiko Ono Aoki since their dad, Benihana restaurant founder Hiroaki 'Rocky' Aoki, died in 2008.

According to the new ruling, the 36-year-old Dj and the 31-year-old Sin City beauty will each receive 50 per cent of their dad's trust, giving them ownership rights to the Japanese restaurant chain and a share of the popular eatery's income.

However, the stars will not get access to the money until they turn 45, according to
