People are pursuing Sean Connery’s 91-year-old widow Micheline over a rumored swindle involving the sale of the couple’s Marbella, Spain, home even though his body is barely cold. In connection with the case, Connery’s solicitors were imprisoned back in 2016. For what it’s worth, Micheline says she has nothing to do with that situation. She also revealed that Connery’s ashes will be scattered in his native Scotland. His wife reportedly indicated that he had one last wish: to go home, and he will once COVID-19-related travel restrictions are relaxed.

But let’s get back to the home in Marbella scenario. Micheline will reportedly be charged and tried, according to Spanish authorities. In 1999, the house was sold and destroyed to make room for 70 apartments. The issue is that only five could be built according to local regulations. Connery was informed in 2014 that he would not be charged in connection with the selling of his home. As previously reported, the Marbella mayor and six council members were all imprisoned along with Connery’s legal counsel.

It is also believed she has ties to a Spanish company who defrauded the country’s treasury of more than $7 million through “fictitious legal transactions.”

If it’s any consolation, Micheline has called the accusations “nonsense.” She is focused on mourning her husband and seeing his final wishes carried out – to be cremated and have his ashes scattered in Scotland. Connery and Micheline were wed for close to 50 years. They got hitched in 1975 after meeting in 1970 at a golf outing. A French-Moroccan painter, Micheline.
