Tranny Widow Fighting Dead Firefighter Husband’s Family For Death Benefits, Compares Herself To Someone With Six Toes

transgender widow Nikki Araguz

Meet Nikki Araguz. Nikki, born Justin Graham Purdue, is being sued by her late husband’s family over death benefits. They feel her marriage with former firefighter Thomas Araguz was ‘null and void’ due to the fact that she was born a man and in the state of Texas, it is unlawful for two men to marry.

Nikki Araguz, wife of recently deceased firefighter, Thomas Araguz, is being taken to court by her late husband’s relatives over the distribution of his assets. Born Justin Graham Purdue, Nikki married Thomas in August 2008, but in April of this year, their attorney informed Thomas of his wife’s real identity and they separated. Thomas Araguz died later on July 4 battling a massive fire.

Lawyers cite that the couple’s marriage could not be considered legal because in the state of Texas, in which Thomas and Nikki were Wharton residents, two men cannot be married. The lawsuit claims that under Texas law, a person that undergoes a sex change is still considered the same sex that their birth certificate shows.

Nikki aka Justin seems to be perturbed about this lawsuit and doesn’t think she’s a transgender…she’s just someone with a birth defect:

Araguz explains that she has neither male nor female reproductive organs. She says she was born with male genitalia that progressed to the point of a 2-year-old’s.

“I had the operation two months after our marriage, and my husband was fully aware, and the birth defect that I had essentially was not a problem to my husband,” she says. “He was proud to be my husband as much as I was proud to be his wife.”

Pressed by the reporter about whether she was born male, Araguz responds: “I do not and have not ever considered myself in that way, but I understand that some people are explaining it like that. And what I’d like to say is that essentially I had a disorder much like anyone else who was born with a birth defect of any kind — no arm, six toes, no vision, OK? There was an anatomical birth defect that was underdeveloped beyond the age of 2 years old.” At the end of the interview, Araguz vows to continue fighting her husband’s family’s effort to deny her death benefits, because she says that’s what he would have wanted.

“I’m deeply, deeply devastated by the loss of my husband,” she says. “I have not even had the opportunity to grieve, and I’m having to deal with this awful, awful situation. I love you, my sweet husband, may you rest in peace.”

  • Kristina

    I’ve had enough foolishness for today. Between this tranny and the gay guy in denial…whew! lol

    If her husband was aware of the issue and he chose to marry her anyway, the in-laws are just showing out. Basically, her dead husband’s family doesn’t like her and are attempting to put the wife “in her place” now that he is no longer here. I guess death really does bring out the worst in some family members.

    @Butterscotch. The article stated her husband didn’t find out she was actually a man until April and they separated he died in July so I can see why his family think this sick person does not deserve his pension and they are right. The “wife” married him under false pretenses how can you marry someone and not tell them that you were born male? You frauded them and if his colleagues found out “she” could have ruined him so she married him under fraud and does not deserve his pension and retirement period.

    If that man knew that when he married her and she can prove when she had the surgery (being 2 months after they married) then I see no problem with her keeping the death benefits. His family probably found out how much it is worth and now they want it. I feel like this if he knew it and he still left it to her then it’s hers. Case closed.

    If she was born a male and that is what is recorded on her birth certificate then she will lose because Texas law dis clear on the issue

    This is truly sad, but if that is true that he didn’t know she was born male during their marriage then yeah I would be fighting this case too if I was his fam. That’s decietful. But lol @the baby dyck….is that what we are calling it now…..a deformity. Lol. I thought I was the only one that looked at it that way…..LOL.

    If they separated after she a LAWYER told her deceased husband she was born a man, that shows that he did NOT accept her anymore as his wife.

    If I were the firefighter’s family, I would sue her too. The marriage was based on LIES!

  • M3@9@N

    Dey mad dey son was gay? Ha

  • Ladybug

    This story exposes something that happens more than you know people lying and defrauding people who are straight into relationships with them. I have only known one tranny personally a co worker at a job who told me “she” and all her friends prefer straight men and go after straight men and do not tell them that their actually men I thought that was truly awful.

    That would certainly change things, but my next question would be why was he was still married to her if he felt betrayed. Or at the very least, why did he not change the beneficiary of his death benefits? That’s usually the first thing folks do in these situations – protect their money.

    @Sanriobaby =^.^=

    “Sad story. Nothing is worse than family fighting over money after someone’s died. But it seems that’s what so many people do.”

    _________________________

    I agree. It’s already tragic enough that he died. Unless she has something to do with his demise, I don’t see why they are so bent on yanking his death benefits from her since he did not change it himself.

  • None

    The lawyers are fighting on behalf of the man’s two children. Why would she deprive the children (age 7 and 9) of their father’s benefits??? Also, I am not too impressed with her lengthy criminal record (check out other sites for details).

    And Dean, I think that you are one crazy dude. Honestly. What a potty mouth you have.

  • Candice

    Someone is lying. She says her husband was aware of her situation, but then it says a lawyer told the husband her true identity in April and that’s why they separated. Either way, this person is a man. So what if he was born with a small weener, fact is, he wasn’t born with ovaries so removing the underdevelope wee wee does not make him a woman.

    So someone married this and I’m still single…the world is not right….
