In a testament to the quasi-family status building staff can attain in the eyes of residents, a Park Avenue doorman received a $500k bequest from a music executive/resident who became "a really good friend" before moving to the great big co-op in the sky last fall, reports the NY Post.  (This is, of course, way above and beyond the suggested annual tipping amounts for one's doorman.)

So was the apartment dweller's former wife, whom he divorced only a year ago, miffed that she apparently received nothing from her ex? 

Apparently not.

“If he wants to give it to the bums, he can give it to the bums," she tells the Post. "He could f--k a nun. I couldn’t give a s--t. He can give his money to whoever he wants. We’re divorced. The man is dead.”

Fortunately for everyone, she did not win the doorman in the divorce.
