Don Cornelius’ Ex-Wife To Receive Huge Life Insurance Payout

Post By RelatedRelated Post



According to TMZ, Don Cornelius died with 2 life insurance policies worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, and the ex-wife he hated will get all the money.

Don’s breakup with Viktoria Chapman Cornelius was brutal. He was convicted of domestic abuse and, according to him, she pepper sprayed him multiple times.

During the divorce in 2009, Don said in legal docs, ‘I am 72 years old. I have significant health issues. I want to finalize this divorce before I die.”

The divorce was indeed finalized later that year, but there’s a provision in the settlement agreement that says Don must make Viktoria the beneficiary of both of his life insurance policies — totaling around $300,000 in benefits.

Under California law, if a policyholder commits suicide within 2 years of the time the policy is issued, the company can deny payment. But Don had the policy for more than 2 years, so Viktoria — the woman he despised — will get the loot.

    a brilliant business man. Soul Train will live on forever. God bless his family.

  3. you gotta give it to white women, they know how to get it. rip gary coleman and don cornelius..

  4. I never knew that he was married..Did he have children? I guess he didn’t. This is not knew, white women are always in it for the money..but prominent Black men just don’t get it. Personally, I have gotten to the point when I hear stories like this, I just don’t give a damn.

  5. Do I hear Kanye West singing “Gold Digga” in the background?

  6. You know what, all of these black men talk about black this and black that when all the time they are persuing these white women. Are we not good enough for the black kings anymore? We were good enough when you were broke, before you went to the NBA, NFL, NBL or any other professional organization! Looks like the juice is not sweeter after all if the berry is darker! Well, I am a black queen with her black king and I am very happy. These white women are sitting back with their girlfriends at brunch with their tea in hand laughing at us queens who are working to take care of our families while our men are out there persuing them and they’re getting all the benefits! I don’t feel sorry for those who get taken to the cleaners by these white women….they’re getting what they deserve!

  7. 300,000 dollars is like 30,000 dollars a year. If she invests it right she probably can make it last for a while. People do not think about money in the beginning, should not think about it in the end. A lady who was married to a man greater than 15 years said that no amount of money in the world was worth what she endured while maried to that man. Usually wisdom comes with age, so if she was a bad woman, he should have taken that into consideration before making her his wife. If God is not in control of a person, why do another human being think they will be? He is no longer tortured by that thing what ever it was that nagged at him through his life, neither can he praise the Lord in death. Until he rises, he rests.

    • @ Poetee, “…neither can he praise the Lord in death. Until he rises, he rests.”

      Beautiful! Poetic! Haunting!

      Thank you.
