Inheritance

Bud Walton, 73, passed away on March 21, 1995 from a stomach aneurysm he had while fishing in the Caribbean.

Bud was the 83rd richest individual in the country and had a net worth of $1 billion at the time of his passing. Sam’s wealth was $8.6 billion when he passed away in 1992, three years earlier. Sam and Bud would be worth a combined $250 billion if they were still alive, and they would get billions in dividends each year.

Nancy and her sister Ann Walton Kroenke received Bud’s stock in the business after his passing.

They also own mansions in LA’s Bel-Air neighborhood and in Columbia, Missouri. They grow appaloosa horses at their ranch outside of Columbia.

In January 2015 Nancy and Bill filed a lawsuit against mega-mansion developer (and father of models Bella and Gigi Hadid) Mohamed Hadid alleging that a retaining wall he installed at a property in Bel-Air damaged roots of a eucalyptus tree on their property. Nancy sought $90,000 in restitution.

Paige Laurie Controversies

Nancy and Bill gave $25 million to the University of Missouri in 2001 to help with the cost of building a brand-new sports arena. The sports arena was to be named after their daughter Paige Laurie in accordance with the stipulations of their contribution. It’s interesting to note that Paige was in fact a student at the University of Southern California at the time of the donation. A few years after the donation, Paige was credibly accused of paying a fellow student at USC to do her homework. The student said that over the course of 3.5 years, she had completed the heiress’s schoolwork and wrote term papers. As a result of the affair, Paige gave USC her diploma back. She had previously obtained her bachelor’s degree from the School for Communication in 2004.

Further fallout came as the University of Missouri eventually grew concerned about the fact that its sports arena, the Paige Sports Arena, was named after a person who not only did NOT attend the school but cheated her way through a different school. The stadium eventually got rid of her name.
