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.
Hereâ€™s what she spent it on:
â€¢ $32,000 for a Cadillac Escalade
â€¢ $26,000 for a Lexus
â€¢ $69,000 on furniture
â€¢ $11,750 for a New York trip
â€¢ $339,000 for purchase and improvement to a new home
â€¢ $7,100 for a pool deposit
â€¢ $5,000 for lawn equipment
â€¢ $34,000 on legal fees
The money was left and supposed to go towards taking care of Wrightâ€™s six children.
