I know many guys who don't like football and cars.

All 11 of them live in £odz, Poland

Stereotypes, you probably know them enough to avoid them ;)

All redheads are dangerous.

Maybe yes, maybe not. Of course, it's quite unlikely, but 'guessing' is not right.

Yes, of course. It's noticeable that young women marry poor old guys all the time. It's the latest fad.

Moral? They got money from his father, probably more than enough.

Not for us to make that call. Family is family.

Wanting - makes people greedy.

Yep, about $500 million worth of greed...........

Just redhead girls or...? ;)

Well, let's think things differently. You know these unusual couples because they are celebs.
There are other unusual couples, but they're 'normal' people and don't appear in magazines.

Family is family.

And your view is that automatically entitles his kids to his fortune.
How do you know that he even had a good relationship with his kids? That they weren't busy squandering the money they already had in the anticipation of more? That maybe he felt that by leaving them millions more, it might actually wreck their lives?

His money, his choice.

Not inviting them to the wedding might have been a clue......

Perhaps they saw a gold digger and he didn't.
Like I said, how many young women marry someone much older who is poor?

I rest my case!

See comment just above yours. Perhaps she fell in love with his dentures?

And we will never know.

He married her after living with her for a time then left his money to her and not his children who already had trust funds that made them wealthy. They settled, both groups felt "they won" and everyone lived happily ever-after. The lawyers all got new houses and it could be that one of them divorced his wife and married his mistress........

Justice is served......

Whether she married him for his money or not, isn't really the point though.
It was still HIS money to do with as he saw fit.
I'm sure his kids were far from overjoyed with being cut out of his will, but who knows whether the result would have been the same had he married someone his own age.

Perhaps he felt she was more deserving than the kids.

Sure it is, I'm such a romantic (as everyone knows)

Only if he was mentally "fit".

True

"The most happy marriage I can picture.....would be the union of a deaf man to a blind woman."...........Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1822)

If he'd been diagnosed with Alzheimers or Dementia there wouldn't have been a 3 yr wrangle over the will.
His kids tried the obvious approach, he's old and lost his marbles. Only card they could play really. Case of sour grapes if you ask me.

I wonder to whom or what she left her 3.6 billion dollars?

out of all those billions I would've settled for, say, $300,000. .................

That would go down very nicely. I wonder what happens to the estate now - it's presumably still vast.

This man wanted this woman, he got her, and he loved having her. You really show your psychic pain by announcing how incomprehensible you find that. Some men DO love women.

He did cheat on his at-the-time wife for her, though, and they were 40-some years in age difference.

I I "love" the story as well and am happy for her and her husband too.

I've heard from a Polish lady who used to work as her cook that she was pretty abusive towards old Johnson. She was a typical gold digger and I don't know what the fuss was all about.

Hahaha!
That's just a re-tread from the 80's!
The same smear old man Johnson's loopy, alcohol-crazed kids tried to use in court against her.
It didn't work then..........

Another way to put it is -- She had an affair with him despite knowing that he was married. It takes two to tango.

she was pretty abusive towards old Johnson.

Shocked, I'm shocked I tell you.....

C';mon, she loved his dentures. She would have married him even if he was dirt poor (snicker)

Of course smearing his kids by calling them "alcohol-crazed" is okay.

But he was the married parent, just like Tiki Barber was when he cheated with Tracy Lynn Johnson (now Barber).

Sorry to read that Mrs. Johnson suffered a long illness.

I did. I looked up "alcohol crazed" in the dictionary and there was a picture of the Johnson kids.

But he was the married parent,

Ah yes, young gold diggers have no responsibility for their behavior even when they know they are one-half of the illicit affair.

That reminded me of another amusing side to that story that I had a dubious pleasure to witness; the zeal with which a horde of eligible men, notably Polish men, pursued the widow and her money..

you thought gold-diggers were confined to the feminine gender? ;)

Oh for frigging sanity sake, the fact that you are gold digger do not mean everybody of Polish extraction are!

is that what you took as a point of my post??
I was showing that some men are gold-diggers as well, Polish was incidental.
Rybnik got it.
