Benson, who has been engaged in a legal fight over who will inherit the sports franchises, detailed why he decided to cut his daughter Renee, along with grandchildren Ryan and Rita LeBlanc, out of any ownership stake with the teams. “Well, they tried to kill me for one thing.” the 88-year-old billionaire businessman said in the deposition on March 28. “I found out they didn’t love me very much, trying to stab me in the back, wanted to take over everything, brought me to court saying I was crazy.
