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.
