Many Say Teddy P. Made A Terrible Mistake Marrying This Woman

if you recall, there has been constant tension in the family over Teddy’s will.

Teddy Pendergrass was married twice in his life – his first marriage lasted for 15 years to his ex-wife Karen Stills (married 1987-2002); and like we stated earlier, he and his widow, Joan Pendergrass, were married for 2 years (married in 2008).

The will that was presented by his widow, Joan, gives her 100% control over Teddy P.’s estate and it also named her as the sole beneficiary, leaving his children with almost nothing, which is something that Teddy’s children claimed is completely uncharacteristic of their father. So the battle has been on and poppin’ ever since. Theodore II lost his case against Joan in October 2014 after the judge believed that Theodore falsified a will that he presented to the court. So that once again left them with the only will available, which was the one that Joan presented.
