RFK Jr. denies stopping financial support to Mary Kennedy
WHITE PLAINS -- Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is disputing claims he stopped financially supporting his wife in the months before her New York suicide.
Lawyers who represented the son of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy in a divorce case pending when Mary Kennedy hanged herself in May issued a statement Monday responding to a New York Post report.
The Post said Mary Kennedy's lawyers filed papers alleging her husband cut her off from a court-ordered $20,000-a-month credit card and said she couldn't afford groceries, gas and medical care.
The lawyers said they were owed $278,000. Their firm didn't return calls seeking comment Monday.
Robert Kennedy's lawyers say he paid for food, shelter, education and health care and fully funded the credit card. They say he wasn't behind in support payments when his wife died.
