Wealthy Florida Man Pulls The Old Reverse Woody Allen And Adopts His 42-Year Old Girlfriend

February 2, 2012

A wealthy Florida man has adopted his 42-year-old girlfriend as a daughter in a move critics say will protect the man’s assets during an upcoming lawsuit surrounding a deadly car accident.

Polo Club Palm Beach founder John Goodman, 48, adopted his longtime partner Heather Laruso Hutchins in October, The Palm Beach Post reports.

The strategy could shore up Goodman’s wealth as he confronts a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the parents of Scott Patrick Wilson, The Associated Press says. Wilson was killed in 2010 when Goodman allegedly ran a stop sign. The trial begins March 27.

Goodman pulls the old reverse Woody Allen adopting his  42 -year old girlfriend rather than  Woody marrying his 24- year old adopted daughter.
