Before George Harrison died in 2001, the rock icon and former member of the Beatles reportedly saw that his sister, Louise, was given a $2,000 per month pension ― a small sum given his more than $300 million fortune.

In an interview with the U.K.'s Daily Mail, Louise Harrison claims that pension ended after her brother died. Now 82, Harrison still works to support herself. However, she isn't upset about the arrangement.

George Harrison's sister lives modestly in rural Missouri

It truly sucks but, just because your family has millions, it doesn't mean they owe you a penny. She was fortunate to get that $2K/month from him for all these years. She could have worked and saved all that money for her retirement.

Hopefully, whoever is in charge of his estate will be nice enough to give her something. (was he married? children?)

I think her attitude is laudable and he and his estate didn't/don't have to give her anything. However its not like she's one of these totally screwed up kids or relative who will take any money and blow it. She's an old lady - FAMILY! - 300 million...sheesh help her our already that's just embarrasing.

Totally agree. They should at least pay off her mortgage (if she has one) and give her a monthly allowance for her expenses and perhaps a bit extra.

Did he have a wife/wives and kids?

At the time of his death, George Harrison was married to Olivia (can't come up with her maiden name) and the union produced their son Dhani (pronounced "Danny"). No other children that I know of. I am an old fan so I've always kept up with his life.

Was there a problem between the two of them? Or, just that the wife didn't want her to have any? You do wonder. No, no one "owes" her anything, but geez it is his sister and she's living hand to mouth. He was well, well off. Maybe people aren't what you think they are.

Just because someone gets famous, it doesn't mean they owe their family a life of riches. That's how many lottery winners lose their money. Thinking, or the family's thinking that they are OWED an upscale living (and the relatives blow all the cash).

When George was alive, he took care of his sister......his heirs {his wife/son} should honor his wishes and continue to do so, IMO.

I find it odd that he didn't make provisions for her in his will. An unfortunate over site perhaps?

Regardless, unless he specifically stated he no longer wanted to care for his sister for some reason, I think they should continue to do so.

As someone else mentioned.....how embarrassing not to, considering their vast wealth.....they wouldn't even miss it.
