A lawyer has confirmed that the late George Best has left his entire estate to one of his sisters with his son Calum receiving just a watch and his two ex-wives nothing.
The former Manchester United star Best died on in November 2005 at age 59 after a decades long battle with alcoholism with an estate worth just $1.03 million.
However the final payout to Best’s sister Barbara McNarry would probably be lower than $250,000 once British inheritance taxes and other debts are cleared.
Paul Tweed, the Belfast lawyer handling the estate, confirmed that the footballer had specified that his only child, Calum, should receive a commemorative designer watch from the 1994 World Cup and nothing else.
He said Best's two former wives, Angie, the mother of Calum, and Alex, who was divorced from Best in 2004, were getting nothing. Neither were Best's other three siblings.
Tweed said Barbara McNarry was specified as the key beneficiary in part because she oversees a memorial fund in Best's honour and was most involved in promoting his legacy.
