Weird Wills – A Battle for Billions

by | Weird Wills

If you were once known as the richest woman in Asia, it is likely there will be a battle for your billions when you die.  Known as ‘Little Sweetie’, Nina Wang was something of an eccentric.  With her hair in pigtails and always dressed in traditional Chinese clothes, she was once the 35th richest person in the world.

Nina Wang’s estate was as troubled as her life.  Worth USD $4.2 billion when she died, she was the widow of a Hong Kong chemical magnate who was kidnapped twice and disappeared in 1990.  He was finally declared dead in 1999.  His will was contested in a 6 year legal drama in which Nina was accused of fraud.  All charges were eventually dropped and she inherited his estate.

After a suspected battle with cancer, though the cause of her death has never been revealed, she died in 2007.  The day after her funeral, two wills she allegedly wrote were published in the Hong Kong press. The 2002 version gave Wang’s fortune to her charitable trust. But the 2006 will named her personal feng shui consultant and former lover, Tony Chan Chun-chuen, as the beneficiary.  The legacy was disputed in another long, costly and bitter court battle.

The charity finally won.  The judge ruled the married fortune teller and consultant was an ‘opportunist’ who had forged a will leaving the billions to him.

"It was a pleasure to work with Cindy and her team! Even though planning for one’s own death is a project we all can easily put off, it removed an area of stress in my life. I no longer had to wonder if certain people would be taken care of, or where my money would go. Cindy and I worked through the process and she asked a lot of thought provoking questions. The first draft helped me think a second layer down, and made the will more complete. We finalised with her lawyer, signed, witnessed and put away in a safe place, letting my executor know exactly where to find it. I do not hesitate to recommend Cindy’s services."

"Cindy made the process of making a Will painless and efficient which we really appreciated. She was sensitive to avoid putting pressure or hassle to complete the Will quickly which allowed us to consider everything in our own time. Best of all, Cindy's professional support and thorough and clear explanation of the laws pertaining to our situation were very helpful. We would look forward to working with Cindy again on documents personal to our family."
