Jessica Pacheco, the mysterious much younger woman who married Monkees singer Davy Jones less than three years before he died, has filed court papers showing that she wants a share of his estate — despite her absence from his will!
A Miami flamenco dancer and actress who met Jones when both starred in a play, Pacheco claims in the paperwork filed in Martin County, where Jones died of a heart attack in February, that she is entitled to her share.
And so did aging British singer/songwriter Chris Andrews, who filed four claims against his friend Jones’ estate. Andrews, a heartthrob crooner in Europe in the 1960s, wants royalties for Jones’ Amore and Written in My Heart, which he co-wrote.
Meanwhile, Pacheco’s lawyer wrote in the petition that Jones’ will dates from 2004. And while Jones didn’t provide for Pacheco in a fresher will, Coral Gables probate specialist Brian Felcoski noted that the will doesn’t contain anything that signified he intentionally kept the woman out. Felcoski represents Pacheco.
But what is clear, however, is that an increasing number of people are filing for their piece of the pie. He had four grown daughters.
Martin Memorial Medical Center claims their pronouncing Jones dead cost $6,562. Two banks claim he owed them a total $50,000 when he died.
And Pacheco asked for about $7,500 in reimbursements for expenses she incurred for Jones’ private funerals in Florida and in his native England.
She recently wrote on her Facebook page that she scattered Jones’ ashes into the Atlantic.
