Kristoff St. John‘s father has now jumped into the mix of his son’s probate and revealed the late soap star wrote up a handwritten will less than 2-years before he died.
According to the will filed by Kristoff’s father, Christopher St. John, wrote, “In the event of my untimely death,” he wanted all his personal savings and money to be divided up among his two daughters, Lola and Paris, with a split of 75% and 25%.
The letter also claims there was a $100,000 check given to Kristoff’s father for Lola, and the actor appeared to note, “He must give money for Lola immediately.”
The late “Young and the Restless” star wanted his younger daughter to be able to access portions of her money on her 16th, 18th and 21st birthdays. He wanted his older daughter, Paris, to receive a lump sum.
The star was also behind on the mortgage for his home, and his father wants to make sure he can pay off the debt so his family doesn’t incur any penalties.
St. John makes it clear in his letter, “these are my wishes,” and also names his father as the executor of his estate. In the filing by Kristoff’s father, Christopher says he needs power immediately so he can straighten out the financial issues, and also alludes to a possible issue with his son’s life insurance policy and a recent change that was allegedly made before his death.
“Petitioner is also concerned about a life insurance policy with Lincoln National, where Decedent was insured. He believes the beneficiary designation might have been changed without Decedent’s knowledge,” the documents claim.
It’s unclear who Christopher believes is behind the altering of the life insurance policy.
As we reported, Kristoff’s daughter, Paris, also just filed to become an administrator in her father’s estate, but listed that she believed he died without a will. On it’s face, the handwritten will by Kristoff appears to be legitimate, but it will still need to be vetted by the courts and officially entered into the star’s probate case.
