Twitter is buzzing about a video of Jerry Springer reading a will. In the same way, he can be seen telling his family and loved ones how he has decided to split his money. Several people on the Internet thought the writer was reading his last words. However, he did not do so. The truth is that the tape is from a play he was in.
“The best Jerry Springer episode ever is Jerry reading his own will He had 2 black children out of wedlock, wife threatens to expose, so he keeps it under wraps until he dies, then leaves all his money to the children he never met. What a legend”
In the video, the television host was heard saying:
“Joan kept me away from you with a threat of exposure. She did not keep me from providing for you. You see I told her that if I had to accept a life without you, she would not get a red cent of my fortune and you would be named equally in my will in the event of my passing. But with everything going on in the world right now I realize that I have to go a step further… I leave my home in New Orleans to you to do whatever you want.”
“The rest of my estate, my properties in Mississippi, Georgia, South Carolina, my bank account, my investment portfolios all liquid and in tangible assets everything, all of it, will go to my children John and Nisha.”
At the time this story was written, over 850K people had watched the video. Several people on the Internet liked what Jerry Springer said.
But it’s not true that the star read his will in the video, as the Twitter user and other netizens said.
Jerry Springer Did Not Read Out His Will
Twitter was one of the first public places to say that the video was not what it seemed to be. In fact, Jerry Springer did not read his will and said that he wanted his money to be split between the children he had outside of marriage. The video came from a skit that Springer did in December 2020, the social networking site revealed.
The “REFRAMED 2020: A Festival of New Plays on Social Justice” festival at Tulane University’s School of Liberal Arts Department of Theatre and Dance included a play reading with Jerry Springer.
Taking into account the actor’s social standing, it is safe to say that he would not have his real will read out in public, if he had one. If the leader did that, the whole world would hear about it. Springer died in April 2023 after a long fight with cancer. His show, The Jerry Springer Show, which started in 1991 and ran for 30 years, was what made him most famous. Up until 1994, he was married to Micki Velton. Katie Springer is their only child together.
