LAS VEGAS (AP) - The sign outside Wayne Newton's sprawling "Casa de Shenandoah" in southeast Las Vegas says "For Sale."

But Newton's wife, Kathleen McCrone Newton, says that doesn't mean the former Las Vegas Strip headliner and his family are moving.

Even if the estate sells at auction May 31, Kathleen Newton says their lease lets them stay in the main mansion and two other homes on the property.

Attorneys aren't so sure.

Hopes to convert the nearly 40-acre spread into a "Graceland West" commemorating the career of the 72-year-old "Mr. Las Vegas" crooner have crumbled, and the Newtons and a partnership that bought the property in 2010 are fighting in federal bankruptcy court.

Meanwhile, the partnership is selling animals like sloths, wallabys and lovebirds it had planned to use in its tourist attraction.
