Who Inherited Lucille Ball’s Estate?

When Lucille Ball passed away in 1989, she left behind a hefty estate. The money was split among her children – Lucie Arnaz Luckinbill and Desi Arnaz Jr. – as well as Gary Morton, who was married to Ball’s second husband, Susie McAllister. Lucille Ball and Morton were married for eight years. After Lucille’s death, Gary Morton remarried Susie McAllister. They had two children, Desi Arnaz Jr. and Lucie Arnaz Luckinbill. Morton Ball died three years later, leaving Lucille Arnaz Luckinbill and Desi Arnaz Jr. with the estate.

Desi Arnaz Jr., Lucille Ball’s son, reunited with his daughter Julia in the early 1990s. The two rebuilt their relationship, but they never met Lucille Ball in person. After Desi left the show, he pursued a film career. In addition, he never played his father’s role on Lucille Ball’s show. But Lucille Ball’s children received a significant amount of her estate.

Desi Arnaz, who co-starred with Lucille on ‘I Love Lucy’, died last December. His will left $250,000 to his mother. His other property was divided equally among the couple’s children. A lawyer and a banker were also named beneficiaries in the will. However, Desi Arnaz’s will also named Lucille Arnaz Jr. as his executor.

In addition to her children, Lucille Ball’s son Desi Ricardo had a drug problem and stopped acting in 2010. His love story with his mother inspired the new movie Being the Ricardos, which was directed by Aaron Sorkin. The film has won numerous awards and is a must-see for anyone who loved the actress. But who will inherit her estate?? And how will her children deal with the loss of their mother?
