Music Mogul Alan Meltzer Dies And Sticks It To His Ex Wife By Leaving $1.5 Million To Doorman And Driver
NY Post: A millionaire Park Avenue music mogul, lonely after his wife dumped him, repaid two faithful workers who gave him a shoulder to cry on — by making them rich after his death.
“I don’t know what to do exactly with the money, but one thing I know for sure — every year, I’m going to bring the guy some flowers at his grave,’’ said suddenly rich chauffeur Jean Laborde, who received $1 million, or 10 percent, from boss Alan Meltzer’s $10 million estate.
“He was always joking. He never looked down on anybody,’’ said Laborde, a 54-year-old father of five from Irvington, NJ. “He was such a nice guy. He left me money, but it’s not a good deal for me because it means he’s no longer here.’’
Upper East Side doorman Chamil Demiraj said he would be eternally grateful to Meltzer, too. Demiraj, of Midwood, Brooklyn, received about $500,000 from Meltzer’s will.
“I appreciate it,” Demiraj said. “He was a generous guy. He was a really good friend of mine, and I was a good friend of his. It’s a surprise. Peace and rest to him. That’s all I can say.”
Meltzer, 67, the colorful former head of the New York-based Wind-Up Records and a celebrity high-stakes poker player, died on Halloween, about a year after he and his wife, Diana, divorced after at least 13 years together and no kids.
The split denied his ex at least a guaranteed 33 percent of his estate. Not that she was mourning the loss of the money — or the man.
“He can leave it to whoever he wants to,” Diana sniffed to The Post of her lost fortune. “I’m doing fine. I could care less.
“If he wants to give it to the bums, he can give it to the bums. He could f–k a nun. I couldn’t give a s–t. He can give his money to whoever he wants. We’re divorced. The man is dead.”
I kind of wish I knew the details of their divorce. It sounds like this woman didn’t get all that much seeing as how she’s basically pissing on his grave now that he’s dead and he’s just writing checks to fucking security guards and drivers. This dude is the fucking man. His wife walks out on him, he dies shortly after and makes sure that he sticks it to the bitch one last time from the grave. Fucking brilliant. Well played Alan Meltzer, well played.
