LOS ANGELES (CNS) – The second wife of the late Ed Asner — the co-conservator of the late actor’s autistic son from another relationship – is asking a judge to order a CPA to turn over the actor’s will.
Asner died of natural causes at his Tarzana home last Aug. 29.
Cindy Asner was wed to Asner in August 1998. They separated in November 2007 and the “Lou Grant” star filed for divorce in 2015. Asner had four children, including Charlie Asner, who was born in 1987 to the actor and Carol Jean Vogelman.
Cindy Asner was named co-conservator of Charlie Asner by a Connecticut judge in December and is advocating on his behalf in a Los Angeles Superior Court petition filed Friday, in which she states that Glendale CPA Jeffrey A. Morgenroth, who possesses the will and is its executor, “refuses to deliver the will to the clerk of this court.”
Charlie Asner has an interest in the will as a beneficiary and as one of his father’ surviving heirs, according to the petition.
Morgenroth did not immediately reply to a phone message left for comment.
A hearing on the petition is scheduled Sept. 16 before Judge Gus T. May.
