This morning we all woke up with some very sad news; we discovered that Soul Train Founder Don Cornelius took his own life with a gunshot wound to the head in an apparent suicide in his home in Sherman Oaks, California.
Well, this afternoon our sources confirmed the reasoning behind Cornelius’ actions. We hear that Don was having a very bad bout with cancer, and while this was going on, he was in a bitter dispute with his wife over the insurance money that would be delegated to her upon his death from the deadly disease. Our sources state that Don wanted the money to be given to his son Tony, but because of his marriage and his failing health the insurance was to be given to his wife. Don made the decision to take his own life since his doctor stated he had weeks left to live.
Truly a very sad story.
