He made tearful pleas for “Jerry’s Kids” during his telethons — but in the end, Jerry Lewis left all six kids from his first marriage out of his will.
The comedy icon and host of the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s annual telethons signed a last will and testament in 2012 that excluded — by name — the sons he shared with first wife Patti Palmer, according to the blast.com.
“I have intentionally excluded Gary Lewis, Ronald Lewis, Anthony Joseph Lewis, Christopher Joseph Lewis, Scott Anthony Lewis and Joseph Christopher Lewis and their descendants as beneficiaries of my estate, it being my intention that they shall receive no benefits hereunder,” the will obtained by the website read.
He noted that his son Joseph died in 2009 after a battle with drug addiction.
