A psychic medium helped comedian Peter Sellers’ daughter, Victoria, forgive him for leaving her out of his will. The psychic contacted Peter and relayed messages about being genuinely sorry about what happened.
The Goon Show and Pink Panther actor passed away in 1980 from a heart attack at the age of 54. Before his death, he made a will where he specified that he wanted his fourth wife, Lynne Frederick, to receive most of his £5.5 million fortune.
Peter and Lynne were going through a divorce at the time of his death, and Victoria was very open about how much she despised her.
Victoria was born to Peter and his second wife, Britt Ekland, and she was the only child they had together. The only thing Sellers left Victoria in his will was £800 for herself and £10,000 for her education.
After Seller’s death, Lynne married a heart doctor in California named Barry Unger, and they had a daughter named Cassie Unger. Lynne died of an alcohol overdose in 1994, and all the money Peter left Lynne went to Cassie afterward, including his estate worth £20 million.
For so many years, Victoria couldn’t understand why he would do that to her, and she had a lot of resentment towards him. At 49-years-old she decided to consult a psychic to see if she could get some answers to her questions.
The Psychic Reading Changed Victoria’s Life
“What happened was so profound I couldn’t ignore it,” Victoria said of the experience. “The guy didn’t know who I was. I went there with a folder, which I kept closed. It had a picture of me, Dad, my Swedish grandma, and a couple of letters from my father written on his favorite Gucci notepaper.”
“The medium said my father wanted to apologize. He said Dad was proud of me for surviving what I’d been through and that he didn’t mean for any of it to happen, that he was sorry.”
“People might think I’m nuts, but it was what I needed to hear. After all these years, it was time to let go of the anger, and I sobbed my heart out.”
“I went home and took out photographs of him that I’d kept hidden away for years. I looked up and said, ‘It’s OK, Dad, we’re good.’” Currently, Victoria works at a restaurant to pay the bills and lives in a rented room in West Hollywood.
She suffered from a drug and alcohol addiction for most of her life but has been clean and sober for three years now.
Victoria Wasn’t The Only One Excluded From The Will
Victoria wasn’t Seller’s only child. He also had two children from his first marriage to actress Anna Howe. Their children were a boy and a girl named Sarah and Michael.
Michael passed away in 2006 at the age of 52. Sarah lives and works in London, running a stuffed animal shop and staying clear of the spotlight associated with her father.
“They missed out on the legacy, too. Dad’s will didn’t just hurt me; it hurt the whole family. We never contested it because under British law, you can only contest a will if you are left nothing. We were left a paltry amount,” Victoria said.
She’s in the process of coming to speaking terms with Cassie Unger because Cassie is in charge of the Sellers’ millions, as well as all rights to her dad’s name.
“Cassie can keep all Dad’s millions. All I want is the right to use my father’s name. It belongs to us, his family. And there are home movies of Dad and me that I’ve never seen. I’ve given up on wanting any money, but I’d love to see those movies,” she says.
