When Steve McNair‘s psycho mistress ended his life last summer, the former Tennessee Titan and Baltimoe Raven’s estate was valued at $19.6 million. So why is his widow struggling to raise their two sons?
McNair made the unfortunately common mistake of not putting his affairs in order the minute he got drafted or had a kid. And now, Mechelle McNair is struggling to take care of two of Steve’s four kids.
As if the family of Steve McNair hasn’t suffered enough, his widow has had to wrestle with the courts to unfreeze the bulk of his assets which were frozen because he died without a will. She recently won a request to get $2.5 million from the late NFL quarterback’s estate. He is survived by four sons and his wife, Mechelle McNair (pictured above). Two of his sons were from a previous relationship.
Last July, he was found dead of multiple gunshot wounds alongside the body of a woman, Sahel Kazemi, in his rented condominium. McNair had been shot twice in the body and twice in the head. Kazemi had a single gunshot to the head, which was proved to have been fired from a gun that was held at her temple. The murder was ruled a murder/suicide and Kazemi as the perpetrator.
The estate of McNair, who played 11 seasons with the Tennessee Titans and two with the Baltimore Ravens, was initially valued at $19.6 million. The bulk of his assets have been frozen since his death.
SMH. And at least Mechelle is his wife, which certainly helps her in some ways. What about his other two sons? This isn’t just a lesson for millionaires either…
