Lili Wilson, the mother of the man killed by Wellington polo mogul John Goodman in a 2010 DUI crash, has become a victim of identity theft and fraud since receiving $23 million from her lawsuit against Goodman, Gossip Extra has learned.
It’s the latest revelation in the ugly legal war that the parents of deceased Scott Wilson have been waging in PBC courts since they split $46 million in the civil settlement with multi-millionaire Goodman and the Players’ Club, the last bar that Goodman visited before the crash.
Goodman was convicted of DUI manslaughter by a jury in March and sentenced to 16 years in the big house. He was drunk when he blew through a stop sign on a deserted Welly road and slammed into a car driven by 23-year-old Scott Wilson, killing him.
The Wilsons’ divorce case, meanwhile, was re-opened during the summer five years after it was settled because William wants a judge to allow him to stop paying alimony.
Lili is fighting William’s demands that she release her financial papers. And in a letter to Judge Tom Barkdull obtained by Gossip Extra, she claims she shouldn’t be compelled to show what she’s worth because of fraud!
“I am a victim of identity theft and there are theft and fraud investigations currently taking place at financial institutions, credit bureaus and police departments,” Lili Wilson wrote to the judge.
“Continued exposure to public records procedures and further media exposure by linking both cases together will put both of us (Lili and Williams) and our families in danger.”
Neither Troy Klein, Lili’s lawyer, nor Joy Bartmon, William’s attorney, returned calls.
Gossip Extra exclusively reported last week that William Wilson asked a probate judge to allow him to have half his son’s ashes because neither he nor Lili can agree on what to do with them.
Scott’s ashes are being stored at a funeral home for more than two years.
