Magician Paul Daniel’s son says he hasn’t received a ‘single penny’ from his father's will

“Now she’s just a jumped-up dancer with no talent. She is running around like a sweet and innocent widow but she doesn’t fool me.”

Magician Paul Daniel’s son says he hasn’t received a ‘single penny’ from his father's will

Paul Daniel’s passed away from a brain tumour in March of this year, aged 77.

The famous magician is worth the net value of €1.6M and according to an interview in The Sun, his son Paul Jnr has said he hasn’t received a single penny.

The 56-year-old says that his father’s wife, Debbie McGee was left everything in the will and cut him out entirely.

He also claims that he was almost left ‘homeless’ after Debbie closed down the party shop that he had established with his father in 2007.

“She came to the shop unexpectedly in May and said she was closing it. She just said, ‘Get your stuff and go.'”

“I only had three minutes to grab my things and get out."

Despite at the time stating that she would ‘look after’ him, he says he is "yet to see a single penny".

“She told me she would look after me and help pay my rent and bills,”

Debbie was married to Daniel Snr for 28 years after they first met when she worked as him assistant.

Daniel Jnr also went on to say that “Debbie McGee is nothing but a false witch who will struggle to survive without my father’s name attached to her”

“Now she’s just a jumped-up dancer with no talent. She is running around like a sweet and innocent widow but she doesn’t fool me.”

Debbie has yet to respond to the claims.
