Clark Gable’s family has exploded into a nasty feud after the tragic death of the iconic actor’s grandson, Clark III, RadarOnline.com can exclusively report.

In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, the actor’s granddaughter Kayley Gable, 32, claimed her father, John Clark Gable, 57, has refused to pay for his own son’s funeral services, or allow him to be buried in the family plot at Forrest Lawn cemetery in Los Angeles.

“I said, ‘Dad, I need some help for the funeral costs’…and he texted me that he wants nothing to do with anything. He doesn’t want any contact with me,” a devastated Kayley told Radar.

“Me and my brother are not trust fund babies…I would pay for the whole funeral if I could.”

Now, Kayley is raising money for a proper memorial on a GoFundMe page, and hopes to bury her brother in Utah near their maternal grandparents.

As Radar exclusively reported, Cheaters host and producer Clark III was discovered unresponsive by his child’s mother, Summer, on Friday, February 22 at home in Dallas. He was just 30.

The local coroner confirmed the death to Radar, but did not reveal the cause.

He previously struggled with addiction, but Kayley insisted he was sober at the time of his death.

“My brother was the kindest soul on earth. Clark was doing great, and he was finishing up Cheaters and doing really well and taking care of his baby,” she said. “We do not know the cause of death but he was in a good place and was clean.”

John, who was arrested for DUI in 2013, has also struggled with addiction and other demons.

In 2006, The GLOBE reported he was abusing crack cocaine and nearly suicidal.

“We lived in terror our whole lives,” Kaylee said of her and Clark III’s childhood with their troubled father.

Her famous grandfather died at just 59 in 1960.

“My grandfather was more than just an iconic actor. He was a beautiful soul, and he would roll over in his grave if he knew what my father was doing right now,” Kayley fumed. “We didn’t tarnish my grandpops name. Our father did.”
