Caught Out There: Dead Man's Wife and Lover Both Post Obituaries in the Same Damn Paper

Leroy "Blast" Black loved one too many women.

An Atlantic City, New Jersey, man named Leroy "Blast" Black was loved by his family and friends. But when he passed away on Tuesday at the young age of 55, it became clear to the world that he had loved one too many women.

This fact became evident in a strange and hilarious fashion when both his wife, Bearetta Harrison Black, and his longtime girlfriend, Princess Hall, wrote their own obituaries for their late lover in the Atlantic City Press on Thursday.

While the obituaries are somewhat similar, there was one noticeable difference: depending on which version you read, he is either survived by his "loving wife" or his "longtime girlfriend."

An employee at the local Greenridge Funeral Home told the Philly Voice that they were both put in the paper because "the wife wanted it one way and the girlfriend wanted it another way." He continued to explain that he did not anticipate any problems because everyone close to Black knew it was happening.

The dueling obituaries make it abundantly clear that these two women were, at least, well aware of one another. It seems that they just wanted to get the last word on the man they loved.

No news on the funeral or when it is set to take place. Perhaps there will be two different eulogies as well.
