Alan Meltzer left $1.5m to Driver and Doorman

Alan Meltzer, who was one of the most popular amateur poker players to appear on the TV show High Stakes Poker, made big news today after it was revealed he left his limo driver and doorman $1.5 million collectively.

The millionaire and music mogul passed away last Halloween, which saddened many throughout the poker community because he was so liked. And this reputation has only been furthered after his will left $1 million to driver Jean Laborde, and another $500k to doorman Chamil Demiraj.

The 54-year-old Laborde spoke to the New York Post about Meltzer’s generous gift by saying, “He was always joking. He never looked down on anybody. He was such a nice guy. He left me money, but it’s not a good deal for me because it means he’s no longer here.’’

Demiraj also commented on the money he received by saying, “I appreciate it. He was a generous guy. He was a really good friend of mine, and I was a good friend of his. It’s a surprise. Peace and rest to him. That’s all I can say.”

Unfortunately, not everybody is a fan of Alan Meltzer and his presents - most notably his ex-wife, Diana. When asked about Meltzer’s choices with his inheritance, she said, “He can leave it to whoever he wants to. I’m doing fine. I could care less. If he wants to give it to the bums, he can give it to the bums. He could f-k a nun. I couldn’t give a s-t. He can give his money to whoever he wants. We’re divorced. The man is dead.”

The two were married for 13 years, and they split last year. Because of the divorce, she didn’t receive her guaranteed 33% of Meltzer’s inheritance, which could have contributed to the bitterness.
