Disgrace: “Jeffersons” actor Sherman Hemsley has still not been buried, CNN reports. The actor, who died more than a month ago from lung cancer, is lying in a funeral home refrigerator while a court decides who gets his remains. Sad, sad turn of events. A Philadelphia man claiming to be his brother is challenging his will, in which he left everything to his longtime partner Flora Enchinton.
Sherman Hemsley signed his will June 13, 2012, one month after he was diagnosed with cancer and named Flora Enchinton as executor. He also left his entire estate to her. Why is it when celebrities die, specifically black celebrities, we have drama? From James Brown to Teddy Pendergrass and others, there is drama.
