Has anyone else heard the story of Huguette Clark?
A millionaire heiress who had not been seen in 22 years.
She died at 104-years old earlier this week.
My cousin sent me the links and I can't seem to get enough of this story.
This is the last known picture taken of her in 1931 - one year after her divorce.
She never had kids and she has no heirs but there is $500-million dollars left behind.
Click  here  for her obit and here for an awesome article that MSNBC'S Bill Dedman wrote. The photo above came from the MSNBC site too.

I'm not exaggerating.  You have to stop and read Bill's report.  Then read this article talking about her burial yesterday.

I think this should be a book then a movie but who knows if it ever will be? There's not a lot of information to date.
Please check it out and post your comments.  Again, I'm obsessed with this story now!

I did not hear she died but NBC (I think) did a story a couple months ago about her....very interesting indeed

Crazy. I had never heard anything about her. So sad everyone is going to fight over this money.

The Jones Family said...

I did hear about her as well. Wow!

Ashley said...

WHAT?? And her acountant as a con and a sex offender? This is so sad. So, why were her relatives not allowed to see her? I mean, I would fight to see her if she was my family- I dont get it.

I love it that you posted on this...and love it even more that you sent me the links. I am fascinated too and hope Vanity Fair or some other long-form magazine does a big piece on it!
