Theballerlife.com has learned that Sherra Robinson Wright, the ex-wife of the late NBA player Lorenzen Wright, who was shot to death back in 2010, allegedly spent 1 million dollars in 10 months, from his life insurance payout a judge said was to support the couple’s six children.
In all, Sherra Wright received a little more than $1 million in life insurance proceeds 14 months after Lorenzen Wright’s still-unsolved 2010 murder. By last September — ten months later — she’d spent $973,000.
Records show Sherra Wright directed much of her spending at her children — a 5,300 square-foot-home acquired last June in east Shelby County is titled in the name of a trust for her four sons and two daughters, for example — yet Herb Wright, Lorenzen’s father, believes Sherra is not making sound choices and is not acting in his grandchildrens’ best interest.
Her spending was brisk and prodigious — $32,000 for a Cadillac Escalade; $26,000 for a Lexus; $69,000 on an assortment of furniture; $11,750 for a trip to New York; $339,000 to buy and improve a new house; $7,100 for a deposit on a swimming pool; $5,000 for lawn equipment; $277 for dinner and a movie; $34,000 on lawyers.
All within 10 months.
The spending report filed in September in Circuit Court as a follow-up to Lorenzen and Sherra’s February 2010 divorce prompted Probate Court Judge Robert S. Benham to appoint a guardian ad litem in October to investigate the Wright children’s circumstances.
