A few months ago poker player and music mogul Alan Meltzer passed away. Two days ago, the New York Post wrote what Melzer repaid faithful workers who gave him a shoulder to cry on - by making them rich after his death. One of them is upper East Side doorman Chamil Demiraj, who received $500,000, and the other one his chauffeur Jean Laborde, who received $1,000,000.

"I appreciate it," Demiraj said. "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."

"He was always joking. He never looked down on anybody,'' said Laborde, a 54-year-old father of five from Irvington, NJ. "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.''

Meltzer, 67, was the former head of the New York-based Wind-Up Records and became a well-known figure in the poker world thanks to his appearances in High Stakes Poker. He died on Halloween, about a year after his wife Diana left him - after 13 years of marriage. Meltzer didn't have any kids and his ex-wife won't get anything from his fortune. But it seems like she doesn't care about the money and who he gives it to.

"He can leave it to whoever he wants to," Diana sniffed to The Post of her lost fortune. "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."

wow great comments from wife who"doesn't care" about where the money goes- it seems that she really is pissed off by the situation- "He could f--k a nun. I couldn't give a s--t. He can give his money to whoever he wants" those are pretty harsh words to say publicly, probably she is annoyed by not getting some cents herself

i bet she's well pissed off!!! she gets nothing!!! and if she would have stayed with him for 1 more year she would probably have the lot, she sounds like a caring person i feel for her that she gets nothing ha

If they were already divorced, all that matters about what’s from one and what’s from the other it has already took place, she doesn’t have nothing more to receive from him, because she has nothing to do with him anymore. Of course she can feel sad for not receiving more money everyone likes it, but don’t seem bothered with that, maybe their relation was really bad.
