Sister of late Beatle George Harrison, 82, lives broke and alone in rural Missouri after his family 'cut her out of his $300million will and stopped the allowance he paid to support her'

Wednesday, November 27, 2013

George Harrison was worth more than $300 million when he died in 2001, but the music legend's 82-year-old sister Louise Harrison now struggles to get by - living in a pre-fabricated home in small-town near Branson, Missouri.

Louise Harrison says she has been cut off from the family. While George left his widow Olivia and son Dhani the lavish Friar Park, a 120-room Victorian mansion in Henley-On-Thames just outside London, Louise is unable to support herself without working - managing a touring Beatles tribute band. However, displaying the quiet stoicism her family is famous for, Louise says she 'doesn't mind not living in a castle because she would rather be broke than live rich and heartless.' Gifted a $2,000-a-month pension by her brother for tax reasons in 1980 to help her get by, Louise found herself unceremoniously cut off by her brother's estate almost a year to the day after he died of complications from lung cancer in November 2001.
