John Goodman Adopts Girlfriend
February 16, 2012 by staff
John Goodman Adopts Girlfriend, A Florida millionaire adopted his adult girlfriend last week, presumably as a legal strategy.
John Goodman is in the middle of a lawsuit following the death of 23-year-old Scott Wilson in an alleged deadly drunk driving accident.
Wilson’s family is fighting in court in a civil lawsuit against the multi-millionaire, asking a judge for an emergency injunction to stop Goodman from selling a large horse stable in Texas, and to allow them to appraise his vast international polo club in Wellington.
The judge ruled he has no jurisdiction over the trust and the sale, but did rule in favor of the appraisal.
The lawyers argue it’s all relevant since Goodman stunned everyone with the surprise adoption of his adult girlfriend last week. Wilson’s attorney says this means one third of his children’s $300 million trust fund is now fair game for a jury to consider as Goodman’s real assets.
“He has chosen to adopt his girlfriend as his child. As a result, he has requested she be declared a beneficiary of the trust. As a result we filed an emergency motion for relief,” said Wilson’s attorney, Scott Smith.
Goodman’s attorneys have said he is not trying to gain control of his children’s trust through his girlfriend, but simply trying to protect the trust if he ends up in jail.
“I think the judge’s order speaks for itself, we’re not going to comment on the ongoing litigation,” said Attorney Dan Bachi.
[Reporter]: “What about the adoption situation you haven’t commented publicly on that yet, Mr. Goodman’s adoption of his girlfriend.”
