I could not pass up the opportunity to share this shameful story about the ex-wife of deceased NBA player who spent $1 million of insurance payout in just 10 months.  I know it sounds crazy and a tad bit unbelievable, but it is true.

Sherra Robinson Wright is the ex-wife of deceased NBA player Lorenzen Wright.  Sherra was able to blow through a large sum of money according to court records.  Sherra is being drugged into court over the misuse of funds by the Wright family.  Lorenzen left behind six children to take care of and those funds may have not reached his children.

According Commercial Appeal, Sherra spent the money on the following,

  1. Cadillac Escalade - $32k
  2. Home and renovations - $339k
  3. Furniture - $69k
  4. Lexus - $26k
  5. Lawyers - $34k
  6. New York trip - $11k
  7. New swimming pool - $7k
  8. Lawn equipment - 5k
  9. Dinner and movie - $227

Now all that is fine and dandy if your income can support that financial lifestyle.  I don't think Sherra had a job that could support that lifestyle for her and the six children Wright fathered.  I really wish I never came across this story due to how unfortunate it is for the children.

If found negligent with the funds, what should be done to Sherra?
