Patrick Swayze family call foul play on actor’s will

Swayze’s entire estate is reportedly worth an estimated $40 million, which was left to his wife Lisa Niemi, 58. The problem is according to Swayze’s family was it was signed by “Patrick Swayze” and executed on July 27, 2009.

The revised alleged will omits everyone in Patrick’s family consisting of his mother Patsy, his two brothers and sister, but did include his brother-in-law Eric who was also named title co-executor of the estate.

The Swayze family friend claims that this is odd, one because at the time of this will was drawn up, dated and signed, Patrick was way too sick and out of it to sign it, they are so sure of this that they have even had a handwriting expert examine it and they also agree, this does not appear to be signed by Patrick Swayze.


“It is highly unlikely that the same person signed the will,” Peggy Walla, the handwriting exert revealed after comparing the signature to three other autographs on memorabilia Swayze had previously signed. “It just does not look like a natural signature.”

It is now speculated that Patrick Swayze’s family will soon be proceeding with an official investigation into this matter.

Swayze died with family at his side on September 14, 2009, at age 57, 20 months after being diagnosed with the disease.

Swayze skyrocketed to fame in the 80’s on the big screen and is best known for his popular roles in hit films such as, Dirty Dancing, Road House, Ghost to name just a few.
