His “Uncle” Left Him Money in His Will, but When The Illegitimate Son Found Out, He Saw Red and Threatened to Sue

A man recently went online to share the complex story of how a ghost from his mentor’s past was threatening court action over the money his mentor left him. Here’s his story.

Jay was a role model

“My dad had this friend, Jay,” the man began. “Growing up, Jay was like an uncle to me. He taught me a lot of things about the world and was a huge mentor.”

“Jay was married for 30 years. But around 21 years ago, he had an affair from which an illegitimate son, Kay, was born. Jay and his wife overcame the affair and stayed married.”

Jay had ignored his child

The man then revealed that although Jay had paid Kay’s mother child support until Kay was 18, he hadn’t wanted anything to do with his child.

Everything had changed three years previously when Jay was diagnosed with cancer. He’d reached out to Kay to try and make amends, but Kay hadn’t wanted to know.

The man had been with “Uncle” Jay through every step of his cancer battle, helping him to find the best treatment possible, but ultimately, Jay lost his battle and died. He was only 51 years old.

Jay’s funeral was a busy affair. Kay and Kay’s mother turned up, although Jay’s wife wasn’t happy about this.

He was a major benefactor

After the funeral, Jay’s will was read. He’d left 35% of his estate to the man, only 5% less than he’d left to his wife. Kay had received nothing.

The man said that Kay flew into a rage, cussing Jay at his funeral. He was livid that his father had excluded him in death as he had in life. Kay began threatening to sue everyone.

At this point, the man and other funeralgoers became irritated with Kay. The man also said that in his country, a child who sues over a parent’s will is likely to win.

The man made Kay an offer. He would give him 5% of what he’d inherited on the spot. In return, Kay and his mother would leave and never make contact again.

Kay refused, calling the man entitled. He said he was going to sue for “everything.”

He fought back

The man retorted that he would not only fight the case, but he would make sure that when he won, Kay would have to pay all of the man’s legal fees.

Was it funny?

The man said that when he’d told his friends the story, he’d expected them to laugh at Kay. But some had cussed Jay out for being an absent father. Others had even criticized the man for denying Kay his “birthright.”

Confused, the man asked the internet for their take.

The responses might have proved tough reading for the man. “Jay abandoned his kid, and you think the kid doesn’t have a right to be furious?” said one. “Jay made his will and can do what he wants. You got the money, but you could at least acknowledge Jay was wrong.”

“What’s funny or entertaining about it?” scathed another. “’My friend acted like his kid didn’t exist for 18+ years, and now I’m going to fight that kid in court. Hilarious, amirite?!’ I hope Kay wins.”
