Things are getting complicated following the death of Kristoff St. John. The Young and the Restless actor passed away in February, but his family is still gathering details about his estate. In fact, his ex-wife Mia St. John is setting the record straight about the actor’s will.
Just last month St. John’s eldest daughter Paris St. John filed documents requesting to become the administrator of her father’s estate. She also filed an objection after her grandfather also filed to become an executor of the estate.
In the documents, Paris said her father died without a will. However, according to Mia, it’s a lot more complicated than that.
“There is a lot of incorrect reporting. Kristoff did not have a will. What was found were pages in a journal. There were things that were scribbled out, crossed out, and we just want to make sure — my daughter just wants to make sure — that his wishes are carried out,” Mia shared with People.
“That’s all. It’s not like she’s fighting with her grandfather; she’s just trying to make sure that everything goes according to what Kristoff had wanted. And because Lola, the other daughter, is underage, Paris filed with her attorney.”
Though people accused St. John of not being prepared for his death, Mia says that’s simply not the case.
“I’ve heard a lot of people say like, ‘Well, I can’t believe he didn’t have his affairs in order.’ Well, he did have his affairs in order. I mean he had a life insurance policy — I was the beneficiary,” she revealed.
The bottom line — Mia just wants Kristoff’s wishes to be fulfilled. “I talked to my husband every single day of [his] life. There were times when he was intoxicated, and there were times when he wasn’t, but there’s never been any confusion over his wishes. That has been consistent since day one. There was never any confusion. I know exactly what he wants, and, and I plan on carrying that out.”
