The father of the motorist killed in a 2010 DUI crash by Wellington polo mogul John Goodman, is making $26,000-a-month from investing his share of the settlement for his son’s death, Gossip Extra has learned.
William Wilson claims $17,725,572 in assets, mostly in stocks and bonds bought after his lawyers got their cut of the $46 million paid to Wilson and his wife by Goodman’s insurance companies and the owner of the Wellington bar that Goodman last visited before the fatal crash!
The paperwork show Wilson’s biggest asset was a $235,970-equity share in an engineering business before the accident that led to Goodman’s conviction and sentencing to 16 years.
According to court papers filed by William Wilson in the re-opening of his divorce against his dead son Scott Wilson‘s mother, Lili, he now claims $26,670 per month in interest and dividends.
He also has $516,735 cash in his bank account, and the $800,000-home he secretly bought in cash last fall through a trust.
William Wilson also says his monthly expenses are $29,552, including $450 for cable TV, $18,287 in credit card bills, $384 for a maid and $55o for electricity.
The financial statement was filed in support of William Wilson’s request that he quit paying $2,500-a-month alimony to Lili.
Lili, meanwhile, is resisting releasing her financial statement and, two weeks ago, was fired by her lawyer, Troy Klein.
Neither Klein nor William’s lawyer are commenting on the case.
The Wilsons have not been getting along. William recently asked a probate court judge to split Scott’s ashes in equal parts and gave them him and Lili because they can’t agree on what to do with them.
