Inheritance Act claims are so topical at the moment, and this one is particularly interesting, since the payment was made to an ex partner of the deceased, George Michael, with whom he had split some 7 years prior to his death. It really goes to show the breadth of the Court’s power/discretion in these cases, which continue to be litigated but inherently unpredictable.
Only yesterday I received a new instruction for a prospective Claimant wife, who had been excluded from her husband’s will.
A very interesting topic, please email me if you need advice : [email protected]
George Michaels former partner Kenny Goss is set to receive a share of the stars £97m estate, after a long-running court battle. The trustees of Michaels estate have agreed a financial settlement with Goss, after the art dealer had demanded payments of £15,000 a month, claiming that Michael had supported him financially when they were together from 1996 to 2009. He has now agreed a settlement with trustees Christopher Organ and Michaels sister, Panayiota Panayiotou, according to documents released by the High Court in London.
