Lorenzen Wright Received Threats from His Wife?

According to Wright’s former assistant, Lorenzen’s wife left him threats prior to his death. Reports My Eyewitness News: “Lorenzen Wright’s former personal assistant says she has audio recordings of Sherra Wright threatening to harm Lorenzen. She claims she played the recordings for Lorenzen, his parents and Memphis police before his murder. ‘I have the evidence that she said these things… and she knows it,’ Lorenzen’s former personal assistant Wendy Wilson says. From the day Lorenzen Wright’s body was found riddled with bullets in a grassy field in Southeast Memphis, Wilson insisted the investigation should focus on Wright’s ex-wife, Sherra. Wilson says the recordings she made of Sherra Wright’s conversations were so unsettling she warned Lorenzen, his parents and Memphis police. While describing the tone of the calls, Wilson said, ‘Oh, just basically… things like if she caught him with anyone else, she’d have him ‘F’d up’ or whatever.’ She went on to say, ‘I’ve let the mother hear, I’ve let the father hear, I’ve let him hear. I went to Memphis police because I was concerned and made a report. Her conversation was all over… but at the same time it was threatening.’ Sherra Wright’s divorce attorney, Gail Mathes, paints a different picture of her client. Mathes says Sherra is a devoted and loving mother of six, struggling to pay the bills.’”

    First time I heard this story I told everybody it would end up being his wife. I knew it ! After I saw how he defaulted on his house last year, and then this? I knew it !

    not sure if it’s worse that she’s possibly a suspect or that there were apparently a number of red flags that should have been regarded– true or not– before this all went down.

    Dam, JT, who hurt you?

    I’ll wait to hear from the family about this. Maybe Wilson has an agenda.

    Sad story getting even worse. Six kids have lost a father and now the mother is a suspect – just sad. I hope she didn’t have anything to do with it because if she did, the kids lose both parents.

    WHY do black men father so many children? WHY SIX? Who, besides mexicans, has six (or more) children??? Strap up, brothers!!

  • ConeyIslander

    When you have over 20 million dollars, 6 kids is cool. It’s when you make 10 bucks an hour with 6 kids that’s the issue.

    Something is def fishy about all this. Was she salty he stoppd giving her tons of money? Was she on his life insurancee? Did she make up the part of gunmen visiting her 6 weks before he went missing? Did they actually visit and she hired them? Detectives have their worl cut out

    Boss, insensitive jokes work just fine when they’re actually, you know, funny. But yours wasn’t.

  • JTaylor21

    @Cheryl, I didn’t mean to offend your over sensitive a**. I know of plenty dudes who got setup by women to get got, so trusting them skeezers is a no no.

    Hope you got a big check when they made menace II Soceity, being that it was based on your life..

    All serious/passionate relationships, at one point, involve death threats. And anyone who’s been in one knows this. It’s why the spouse/fiance is always a suspect. Sounds funny, but it’s true.
    RIP Lorenzen. He took care of those around him and did his best in the time he had.

  • OG

    Sorry Boss. Those are my initials. Again, stop with the jokes. You’re not funny. That’s all.

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    Just seemed like a personal attack, Oliver.. I dont agree with 100% of what people say on here, or think everybody is funny.. I just choose not to be a jerk and tell them to stop.. Keep it to yourself, buddy.

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    And it wasnt really supposed to be funny.. Just ironical that these (threatening) tapes are being reviewed at the same time as Mel’s..

  • OG

    Once again boss you wont shut the f**k up! Just shut the f**k up!!!

  • og

    Wrong on the oliver guess. Also, you’ve mistaken a coincidence for irony. That’s all. I’ll keep my criticism of poor jokes to myself when you don’t post the poor jokes. Sheesh.

    I think it’s lame this has been published on Slam… A dude is dead and now we’re talking gossip and maybes. Leave it be people and leave it be Slam, unless it’s the facts.
