The widow of the late Lorenzen Wright has squandered a fortune in insurance money meant to take care of their children.

If you can remember back to 2010 when NBA player Lorenzen Wright was killed by a gunshot to the head, you will remember how tragic the entire story was for this young athlete and his family.

Wright earned over $55 million during his career and was divorced only a couple of months before his death from Sherra Robinson-Wright. After Robinson-Wright was cleared of being a suspect in the shooting, she received an insurance check for $1 million dollars. After only 10 months that million is almost gone.

Here’s what she spent it on:

• $32,000 for a Cadillac Escalade

• $26,000 for a Lexus

• $69,000 on furniture

• $11,750 for a New York trip

• $339,000 for purchase and improvement to a new home

• $7,100 for a pool deposit

• $5,000 for lawn equipment

• $34,000 on legal fees

The money was left and supposed to go towards taking care of Wright’s six children.

    While life insurance is critically important, it’s also important to specify HOW the money is to be distributed. Some policies allow you to spell this out in monthly payments-and at no charge-to prevent this spend-down. A will and/or trust could also help. If a divorce ensues, one needs to adjust the beneficiaries accordingly, as well.

    Since they were divorced – – – she is not his widow, she is the exwife.

    She bought a house, furniture, lawn equipment, and a pool. I’m pretty sure all of that is for the benefit of the children.
