A grieving woman took to Reddit for opinions after she “robbed” her brother of his full inheritance. At least he got to pay court costs, too! Here is the full story.
He Was Mom’s Favorite
OP is a 32-year-old woman who has a 35-year-old brother. He was always his mother’s favorite among her 3 kids.
He Always Got His Way
Whenever he wanted something as a kid, all OP’s brother had to do was pout or throw a tantrum and their mom would give in to him.
He’s a Spoiled Adult
A lot of that behavior and favoritism carried over into adulthood, too. That point became very clear to OP recently when her gay uncle died.
They Disowned Him Because He Was Gay
The uncle was her dad’s brother, and they also had another brother and a sister. While OP’s dad was fine with all his siblings, his sister and other brother pretty much disowned their gay sibling when he came out.
She Stayed Close to Him
But OP and her family remained close to the now-deceased uncle all through his life. They were pretty much his only family by the end.
Dad Was Devastated
That end became inevitable when OP’s uncle was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2019. Her dad was devastated by the news and could barely cope with the idea of losing his brother.
He Couldn’t Handle the Stress
Because the dad was having such a hard time, the uncle rewrote his will and asked OP’s older brother to become the executor of his estate.
He Would Make Bank
That thrilled OP’s older brother because he saw an easy payday in his future. All he had to do was keep things in order, and the estate would be his.
He Left a Big Surprise
But when OP’s uncle passed away a few years later, the family had a big surprise in store.
They Waited for Answers
After the funeral, they all convened at the uncle’s house, where OP’s dad opened his brother’s safe. Inside was the updated will.
He Was Devastated
When they read the will, OP’s brother exploded and knocked everything off the uncle’s desk. Then he stormed out of the house.
It Was an Even Split
OP’s uncle had decided to split his estate four ways, with equal parts going to his boyfriend, OP herself, her brother, and cancer research.
He Wanted His Money
OP’s brother was furious because he swore his uncle had promised him half the estate. He felt entitled to his 50%, with the other half split three ways.
He Took Them to Court Over It
In fact, the brother felt so wrong that he contested his uncle’s will. His lawyer even called OP to the stand.
She Was on the Spot
At one point, OP was asked if she thought her brother should get half her uncle’s money because of the work he did as the executor.
He Didn’t Deserve It
But OP was honest and said she and her dad did more for her uncle than her brother ever did.
He Lost Big
That sent OP’s brother into another rage, which only got worse when he lost his case.
And He Had to Pay
In the end, the four-way split stood, but OP’s brother had to pay for all the court costs out of his share. He tried to guilt OP into paying those costs, but she shut him down.
They All Turned on Her
Now, most of the family has turned against OP, and her mother even banned her from Christmas for hurting her “baby.”
She Was a Target
And OP’s sister-in-law texted her a picture from a family party where her brother had posted her picture to a dartboard.
She Blew the Family to Bits
OP doesn’t think she did anything wrong, but she’s upset that the family is torn apart by money.
She Made the Right Call
Redditors overwhelmingly support OP and think she made the right call. Many of them say that her brother brought a frivolous lawsuit to court and got what he deserved.
Others think OP should work as hard as she can to put it all behind her and stay away from her brother and mother.
