A chauffeur and a doorman are suddenly well-off after music mogul Alan Meltzer left them both a large chunk of his $10 million estate. Meltzer "was such a nice guy," says his chauffeur, who got $1 million. "He was always joking. He never looked down on anybody." The former head of Wind-Up Records died about a year after divorcing his wife. His doorman received around $500,000.
"He was a generous guy," says the doorman. "It’s a surprise." Making the heartwarming story decidedly less heartwarming is this colorful quote from Meltzer's ex, who lost out on her share of the estate: "He can leave it to whoever he wants to. I’m doing fine. I could care less," she tells the New York Post. "If he wants to give it to the bums, he can give it to the bums. He could f*** a nun. I couldn’t give a s***. He can give his money to whoever he wants. We’re divorced. The man is dead." (Read more millionaires stories.)
