Sometimes, people find out that one of their late relatives left a lot of money or property to someone they were not expecting to find in their will. When that happens, it can be shocking and result in drama.

One young woman recently inherited a lot of money from her late grandmother, and now her parents, who didn’t receive a dime, won’t stop harassing her.

She’s 24-years-old and was recently left a ton of money from her late grandmother. She’s always had a tough relationship with her parents, who are in their 50s. Unfortunately, things became even more complicated between them when everyone found out her parents didn’t get anything in her grandmother’s will.

“When the lawyer revealed the amount and the specifics, we were all in shock,” she recalled.

“My grandmother had left everything to me [including] her house, her cars, and a substantial amount of money. My parents were completely left out of the will. Their initial reaction quickly turned to fury. They immediately started claiming that they were entitled to the money because it was their mother who had left it. They demanded that I give them a significant portion to cover their debts and even pay for a lavish vacation they had always dreamed of.”

While she sees where her parents are coming from, her grandmother’s money could change her life. She plans to invest it, use it to pay off her student loans, buy a house, create an emergency fund, and potentially go on a much-needed, relaxing trip.

On the other hand, her parents stated they wanted to use the money for superficial things like a cruise and upgrading their homes and cars. 

“When I pointed out that these were not necessities and that I needed to use the money responsibly, they accused me of being ungrateful and selfish,” she said.

“I didn’t want to give in to their demands. I worked hard to build a stable financial future for myself, and I didn’t think it was fair for them to expect me to bail them out. When I finally told them, no, they were furious. They accused me of being ungrateful and selfish, and our arguments became a daily occurrence.”
