Former Lakers' Owner Leaves His Girlfriend Several Gifts

WillsJerry Buss, the former owner of the Los Angeles Lakers, recently lost his battle with cancer. Before he died, he changed his will to leave several gifts to his then current girlfriend, Delia Cortez. What were those gifts? He left her his condo in Honolulu, Hawaii and his 200 Bentley. Aside from these gifts, Delia will likely take nothing under the will. In fact, the estate, which is valued at over $5.5 million, will be poured over into his family's trust. The will appointed his daughter, Jeanie, to be the trustee.
