When it comes to the inheritance of a celebrity, who inherited the money of Ginger Rogers? The late actress was the daughter of Eddins and Lela Rogers. She had a wealthy and colorful family, including a father and a sister. Her father died in 1982, and her sister inherited his money from her father. The money from Ginger Rogers’ estate included the house and the art in it.
After the death of Fred Astaire, Robyn Smith became notoriously greedy. She refused to allow clips of the actor being honored without paying an exorbitant amount of money. She also forced Ginger Rogers to pay a large sum of money to be honored by the Kennedy Center for her work in the musical “Kitty Foyle.” The two actors starred in musical films with RKO, but a conflict arose between them. As a result, no footage of Fred and Ginger was shown.
As she grew older, it became increasingly difficult to get good movie roles. Although she stayed busy throughout the fifties, her movies never lived up to her reputation. She stayed active in the stage, however, and scored a hit on the London West End with the critically acclaimed musical “Mame”. She later directed an Off-Broadway show, “Babes in Arms.”
While she struggled to graduate from high school, Rogers continued to perform. After starring in the commercially successful “The Barkleys of Broadway,” she was cast in two other films, Monkey Business and Tight Spot. In 1967, Rogers and Astaire reunited on stage, where they performed the lead roles in “Hello, Dolly!”
