Controversy sparks over will post former child actor Mickey Rooney’s death
Late Mickey Rooney‘s eight children will reportedly contest his will after the actor left his entire estate worth $18,000 to his stepson Mark Aber.
Mickey’s wife and singer Janice Rooney and his eight children from different wives are said to be unhappy with the arrangement and are seeking legal advice, reports a portal.
Janice was married to the former child star for 35 years and said that the will is invalid as it was made just a month before Mickey passed away. She added that the actor wasn’t in a fit frame of mind to compose such a document.
Mickey’s daughters Kimmy Sue and Kelly Ann have asked for the will to be examined by legal experts.
“Kimmy Sue especially feels hard done by. She was the only biological child that Mickey was close to, so she’s furious to be cut out for a stepson who’s only been on the scene a few years. There’s little love lost between the kids and Jan (Janice), and her son Chris, but they all agree that it shouldn’t be going to Mark. That’s the last person it should be going to,” said a source
He disinherited wife Janice because she receives social security and some of his pension benefits, which comes to about $8,400 a month.
