Beverly Hills, CA—When Ronni Chasen was gunned down in her car last month in Beverly Hills it became obvious there was some very bad blood between her and someone else.
TMZ.com has published a report that included a copy of the 1994 Last Will and Testament of the murdered women. This very wealthy murder victim stiffed her niece, Jill Gatsby, a near-do-well actress, singer etc. in the Will.
Chasen willed her a measly ten-spot as quoted in the document, "I have intentionally and with full knowledge of the consequences omitted to provide for my niece, Jill Cohen, also known as Jill Gatsby, except for the gift of $10."
It is customary to leave something to relatives you hate so they can’t later claim they were somehow forgotten and get a piece of your pie from some sympathetic probate judge.
Gatsby chose an entertainment career that has been stuck in park just as many thousands of others seeking fortune and fame in Hollywood. Ronni Chasen had the ability to promote anyone with minimal talent into a lucrative career. It is obvious Chasen was of no help to her niece.
On the other side of the coin Chasen had the ability to destroy a career in the entertainment business. Whatever created this rift seemed anything but insignificant.
As we speak Beverly Hills police detectives are looking for any connection between the dead murder suspect and Jill Gatsby. Any evidence of financial support would of course be incredibly damning. Of course the police are looking at every other possibility too.
Will there suddenly be a parade of witnesses coming forward telling police about this family feud? I don’t doubt for a second this whole ugly affair will become the best current show in Hollywood. The venue will be the Los Angeles County Superior Court.
One thing for sure this case is getting spicier by the minute.
