Below is the sad reason why Lynda Bellingham’s sons can’t grieve.
The sons of the late Oxo star Lynda Bellingham are now embroiled in a bitter legal dispute, and have hired a legal team to contest their mother’s will. Lynda Bellingham’s sons, Robbie and Michael Peluso, have accused their late mother’s husband Michael Pattemore of squandering thousands of pounds from their late mother’s estate, as well as their inheritance.
The former Oxo star and actress left everything to her husband, Michael. The two boys of the much-loved ‘Loose Women’ panelist have also claimed that despite being evicted from the family home and watching their inheritance disappear, the legal battle is not all, “about money”.
After losing their mother to bowel cancer 18 months ago, Robbie and Michael have heartbreakingly revealed that the stress caused by their step-father’s actions has prevented them, “from grieving properly”.
Talking to the Daily Mail, one of Lynda Bellingham’s sons, Robbie revealed, “At that point I thought, ‘No. Enough is enough.’” Referring to an interview his step-father gave where he claimed the ghost of Lynda had visited him from beyond the grave Robbie commented, “That interview was awful, so disrespectful to my mother.”
“She should be remembered for all the wonderful work she did as an actress and the inspiring courage she showed at the end of her life, not for these tacky revelations that are tarnishing the reputation she worked so hard for.
“When I read the interview about her ghost, I knew it was time to stand up for her, and give our side of everything that’s happened since my mother’s death.
“Our stepfather always says he’s close to us, but that’s not the case. We want the public to know that a lot of what they’ve been told just isn’t true.”
