The Estate of Frankie Lymon

Sensationalized by the the motion picture “Why Do Fools Fall in Love”, Frankie Lymon’s case was notorious because of the three alleged widows fighting over his estate’s royalties.

With Artists Rights' assistance, the proper widow secured her rights to Frankie’s fortune. At the same time, Frankie was established as co-author of “Why Do Fools Fall In Love” and many other of his best-known songs. So, after being swept aside by the infamous music mogul Morris Levy, Frankie finally received both record credits and royalties.
