In 1988, a judge in New York ruled that a Philadel­phia woman was the widow of 1950s doo-wop singer Frankie Ly­mon, who co-wrote and sang the 1956 mil­lion-seller Why Do Fools Fall in Love? El­iz­a­beth Wa­ters in­her­ited Ly­mon’s es­tate, es­ti­mated to be worth $750,000. Wa­ters and two other women all claimed to have been mar­ried to Ly­mon, who died of a drug over­dose in 1968.
