Ouch!! Elizabeth Edwards Cut That Shady A$s Husband Of Hers Out Of Her Will Right Before She Passed

- By Bossip Staff

SMH…you get what you deserve Johnny Boy:

Elizabeth Edwards cut her louse of a spouse out of her will – less than a week before she died. The wronged wife of former presidential candidate John Edwards, who died last month after a courageous battle with breast cancer, left everything in her sole possession to their three children.

“All of my furniture, furnishings, household goods, jewelry, china, silverware and personal effects and any automobiles owned by me at the time of my death I give and bequeath to my children,” the will says. Edwards’ eldest daughter Cate, a lawyer, was named as the executor of the will, according to Inside Edition, which obtained a copy.

John Edwards was not mentioned even once in will – though his work as a trial lawyer generated the family’s fortune. His net worth through courtroom work has been pegged at more than $25 million. Edwards, who was 61, signed the document on Dec. 1 – six days before she passed at her home in Chapel Hill, N.C.

The cause of death was metastatic breast cancer. Edwards was married for 33 years to former North Carolina Democratic Sen. John Edwards, who twice ran for President and cheated on her even after she was diagnosed with terminal cancer.

They were separated, but the cad was by his wife’s side at the end. The Edwards’ had four children. Their eldest son, Wade, was killed in a car crash in 1996 when he was 16. Edwards was her husband’s top adviser during his 2004 run for the Democratic nomination and during his stint as John Kerry’s running mate. A day after the election loss, she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

The cancer retreated after surgery and chemotherapy and John Edwards decided to run again in 2008. Meanwhile, she wrote a best seller, “Saving Graces,” about her illness and losing Wade. When the cancer roared back in an incurable form in 2007, both John and Elizabeth vowed to continue campaigning. But by then, John Edwards was already carrying on a torrid affair with New Yorker Rielle Hunter.

John Edwards was finally exposed as a cheat by the National Enquirer. His wife stuck by him despite his lies and denials until he accepted paternity of Hunter’s baby daughter. That, she could not abide.

R.I.P. Elizabeth.

  • Just Bored

    What do you say to God when he ask you about abandoning your wife when she was ill? And really, does God even bother talking to you when you do this??? I just feel bad for the kids, it will always be in the back of their mind, even though that’s still their daddy and they love him.

  • JS

    He’s as lowdown as they come, this man will be soooorrrry one day.

  • ChelloMello

    Yes, what John did was lowdown and dirty, but people need to realize John Edwards was the real $$$$$ maker in the family. Yeah okay, during the years Elizabeth Edwards started her own businesses and probably made a few million to boot, but that’s chump change compared to what John has. Elizabeth knew about the affair but didn’t most likely know about the love child. Or maybe she did and was just pissed that it became public. Being a political wife is sweet with the rewards and social power, but trust once the affair goes public it goes down hill from there and it becomes embarrasing….just ask Hillary, Silda Spitzer………

    • What the f#ck does the money have to do with it ???

      What is your point??? Re-stating that he was the bread winner means what exactly? Is that a justification? Sure sounds like your trying to make it one. Because he made them rich, she should have just dealt with it. The money there to comfort her, drying the tears? C’mon Son! She should be no less hurt or humiliated than the wife of a broke azz liar and cheater.

  • juliemango

    Seems like the metastatic breast cancer didnt spreat to her brain and impair her mentals, but the loss of inherited dough is no financial loss to the man its all psycholigical!!!

  • OMG

    People, People, looky here whats the damn big deal i bet John didn’t expect her to leave him anything. They were not together so do you expect him to expect something you bunch of idiots.May she rest in peace

  • sportstalk23

    Good he should be left out but ol scuzbag has his own money and wont be homeless living in the gutter,where his azz belongs but politicians dont get money from politics most of these folks already got dollars, Hill and Bill were both lawyers just like John and Elizabeth, we all know the Kennedy’s didnt get all their dough after politics but before.Same thing with Barack and Michelle both lawyers, the Bush money is long. So Edwards will wont be needing any government cheese no time soon.

  • Marquis de Sade

    Please, this dead bytch not leavin’ this (already) multi-million-aire any of her trust fund money is of lil’ to no conse-quence to his continued liveli-hood…He’s probably glad that bytch of a wife is now food for the mag-gots…Sides’ John Edwards is WHITE with a Law Degree from an Ivy League college with an already suc-cessful political career. Trust, he’s geneti-cally incapable of makin’ less than 6 figures a year.

    • What the f#ck does the money have to do with it ???

      Okay, alright, he is rich and does not require a monetary inheritance. He’s educated and in the past achieved some success….. but trust that he will PAY a major PRICE for this shyt!!! His actions have cost him his self respect and the respect of his peers. His political career is RUINED. No one will be willing to stand close to this man due to the fact that he is severely lacking in judgment and integrity….. He will disappear into the shadows! His best bet is to invest and hope the money last!

  • SMH

    OKAY!!! Her wealth was from her one book. The dude made $25 mill as a lawyer and God only knows how much else from other things. He is NOT hurting …

    • What the f#ck does the money have to do with it ???

      @Marquis de Sade

      Are you on Edwards payroll? You ought to be, d@mn!

      You’re making all these excuses for this man like he did you a favor.

      Point blank…. if she was the B!Tc# you claim, he should have gotten a DIVORCE and would have been easy to request!
      (Now talk that it’s cheaper to keep her BS)

  • pai

    Sad situation, when he was running for office, was’nt it the Feds who leaked the story to the Enquirer about his infidelity.

    • Marquis de Sade

      Nope! The Enquirer had suspicions about his indiscretions years ago. He just got sloppy.


    Karma is a a B-ITCH! THAT IS WHAT IS A-SS GETS!

  • http://bossip Pimp4ADay

    Why is the media trying to make this sound like John Edwards is sitting somewhere crying for not being mentioned in her will. The guy gets full custody of the kids. He doesn’t have to worry about hiding who he sleeps with anymore. Plus he has $25million sitting in his bank account. How does he lose sleep over this?

    • barbra

      I do feel bad that she had to suffer from this and knew it before she died. I personally think the Enquirer should have waited to find her final medical condition. This added much more on her regardless of his wrong. It had to make her maybe even want to die and not fight or the stress brought back the cancer. We really do not know her whole side of knowing or noticed. Yet, the Enquirer and other money grabbers do not care about anyone. This is not even their business anyway, so who said they were to be the meddling fronts. I am speaking about this woman suffering much more. He did make her and his kids wealthy, that counts for something too. We all feel for her most of us. She is gone now to rest, and will not suffer anymore. He has the kids, and of course with what she left them, it makes it easy for him again. I am sure he has suffered much for this already too. He will never forget, and others will never let him forget. I still feel he is a people person for leadership and the poor and down black folks he fought for. He has to stand for his sins. Not us. Let this die for his living kids sake. Please. Pray for his kids and him.


    Is it me or does John Edwards got a look on his face that says ” bytch get the fuquak off of me”!

  • Xclusive

    LmaO….That’s What he GeT…

  • Bopa

    I’m sure she probably saved a few chunks of cash but I their homes and cars were in both of their names or just his then they may go to him just based on that fact. Her mistake was not mentioning him the will. All she had to state was “I intentionally left my estranged husband John Edwards out of the will.”
