Jerry Lewis, an American comedian, actor, singer, filmmaker, and humanitarian, dubbed as “The King of Comedy”, who entertained us for years has left the world at 91. However, there are some strange words surronding his death. The will he has made is seen to be quite a glitch by the people.
John Lewis’s Will
The legendary comedian made a point of clearly stating in the legal filing that his six sons born from his first wife, Patti Palmer, a British singer were to get nothing upon his death. He wrote in his will, which was last updated four years before his death the following words:
‘I have intentionally excluded Gary Lewis, Ronald Lewis, Anthony Joseph Lewis, Christopher Joseph Lewis, Scott Anthony Lewis, and Joseph Christopher Lewis and their descendants as beneficiaries of my estate, it being my intention that they shall receive no benefits hereunder, ‘.
Lewis kept Joseph in the will despite the fact that he passed away in 2009 -but excluded all his sons who were alive.
His estate will now go to his widow SanDee, a former Las Vegas dancer, and their daughter Danielle, who the couple adopted in 1992 after nine years of marriage.
The Reason Jerry Lewis Left Nothing For His Sons
Many people speculated that Jerry Lewis was a heartless man, who did not give along with his family. However, seeing things this way seems quite negative and personally very touching.
Hence, The idea that Jerry wanted his kids to learn how to safeguard themselves may seem like an outdated concept. But back in Jerry Lewis’s time It was quite prevalent, teaching kids how to do things for themselves and how to earn their own money was highly preferable as they would know the value of the things rather than spending like a spendthrift. However, the lesson may be a hard one for the sons, who are now left with no money.
