Sherman Hemsley Still Resting on Ice

Entertainment & Celebrities / September 3, 2012


Weezy is probably rolling over in her grave right now.  Sherman Hemsley still has not been put to rest after passing away on July, 24th.

The actor best known for his role as George Jefferson on “The Jefferson’s”  died of lung cancer over a month ago.  He is literally being kept on ice until a dispute involving his will is sorted out.

According to the AP, 6 weeks before his death, Hemsley signed a will naming Flora Enchinton — described as Hemsley’s  “beloved partner” — as his sole beneficiary.  Now, a man claiming to be his long lost brother from Philadelphia, Richard Thornton, has come forward contesting the will.

Enchinton, claims that Hemsley had never mentioned any relatives in the two decades that she worked as his manager.

According to court documents, Hemsley was only worth $50,000.  After keeping him on ice all this time, that will probably be what will be owed to the funeral home when it is all said and done.

It’s such a shame that when someone passes, people want to come out of the woodwork to lay claim to what they think may be a fortune.  Obviously, Thorton, thinks that he is about to be rich.  I don’t think that he received the memo that $50,000 is not a lot of money, especially when he would have to pay the additional cost to the funeral home.  He may as well crawl back under the rock that he came from and finally allow Mr. Hemsley to rest in peace.
