A study published in the journal Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin suggests that when a group is without a leader, you can often count on a narcissist to take charge.

Re: Rita sues!!!!

Tom Benson had to discipline Rita 2-3 years ago and cut her off then. Didn't he send her to Europe or something? He wasn't old or coerced then. It's his business. He can will it to his dog like Leona Helmsley if he wants.

No. He really can't. And this isn't limited to Rita. The entire family has been (or he is attempting to) cut off. With the exception of the wife/stop mom.

Re: Rita sues!!!!

It is crazy how families get at the end of someone's life.

I was in a similar situation where my Grandfather passes... all my life I was raised by my Grandmother and Grandfather. My Aunt's and Uncles were brother and sisters to me and even to this day I am refereed as the little brother by some. All of a sudden for the funeral and all the other hoop-la. I am suddenly a 'grandchild'. Its not cool to be treated like that all of a sudden have that slipped out from under you for what could be no reason at all.

I get he is entitled to do what he wants with his possessions ect. But they are going to have to look into if someone is forcing Benson to make these decision on his own accord.

Re: Rita sues!!!!

Sorry, but this is not Benson's business stylings. It reaks of manipulation and forgery. Saying things like, family members will be taken care of...absoultely not something he would say and certainly nobody's business how he handles something that personal. I was not even aware he had several wives and a number of children until now and I've been a fan since 35 years. He's never talked about it publicly that I'm aware of until right now.

Re: Rita sues!!!!

Okay, a lot of people taking sides here, I'm not sure what's going on. Just remember, all any of us know is what we read online and hear on the news. And I promise you, it's not the whole story. Judge slowly.
Halo, Danno, hagan714 and 4 others like this.

Yep, nobody knows a damn thing. To take a side in this issue is absurd.
We've all seen examples where the parent went totally psycho with the trophy wife and screwed his kids, and we've all seen examples of the greedy kids overly obsessed with inheritance.

Re: Rita sues!!!!

Rita is saying he lost his mind. Gayle says no, he's still capable of making rational decisions which involve making irrational decisions like tearing the former trust into shreds and starting over. That is complete B.S.
