Elizabeth Taylor Leaves $800k+ To Her Last Husband

| Filed under: Legal MattersElizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth And Larry

A few weeks after such a sad loss, we're learning more and more specifically how the wonderful Elizabeth Taylor divided up her fortune in regards to her will.

Among charities and family members, one recipient comes as somewhat of a surprise: her ex husband Larry Fortensky received more than $800,000 according to the actress's final wishes!

Larry, married to Elizabeth in the 90's, has had a rough time with his health due to a head injury he sustained in 1999 from a drunken fall. Not one to turn her nose up at charity, Elizabeth (without being asked) offered him a thousand dollars a month:

"Darling Larry. I've been thinking of you lately and worry about you. I think you could use a little help so I would like to send you a thousand a month for the rest of my life or until I go broke."

That's so sweet of her!

She also cut him a check for $15k when he was about to lose a house (which he eventually did). Everyone has been very clear, though, that he never asked her for handouts, and that even while they were married, he was still working his job.

The two remained close despite the divorce.

Well, Larry, we definitely hope this helps out with those health issues of yours! It sounds like Elizabeth cared for you a lot, even in the end, regardless of you two not being together anymore.

We think we can all agree that Elizabeth had an amazing heart, that's for sure!

    Nice.
    Now watch him catch the next flight to Vegas. First-class seating, naturally.
    Just sayin'.

    That was really nice of her. If Larry has any sense at all, he will not blow the money on gambling, booze, new cars, hook up with opportunists, etc. etc. He should dole it out to himself, so much a month.

    Elizabeth was a kind and caring individual. I'm glad she kept in touch with him and helped him. He must have been a decent person in spite of his demons and in spite of the fact they got divorced.

    Dear old Liz, the LeeAnne Rhimes of her day, only she did "it" so much better. There is nothin' like a Dame!

    Elizabeth was a nice person. Now we know more about her. She is happy now, I hope that God welcome her, forgives all her mistakes, rewards her for the good thins she had been doing while she was alive and gives her a nice and peacefull place beside him.
