Best Answer

The answer is yes, although the amount she inherited was negligible. Out of the $54 Million Estate, she was only awarded a total of $16,000.00. Interviews were given by Ambrose in 2004 stating that the disbursement of the Will was being "held up" because Switzerland did not recognize "Common Law Wives" and that Robert Palmer had written the Will in her favour. That was not correct. Ambrose was not Robert Palmer's common law wife to start with, and the Will was ajudicated in Paris, France, not Switzerland. As it turned out, Robert Palmer had written his Last Will and Testament to favour his children and to benefit UNICEF. Mary Ambrose did sue the Estate of Robert Palmer in 2004, but her matter was dismissed by the Paris, France Court. She Appealed the Court's decision, but her Appeal was dismissed in 2004.

Did Mary Ambrose Robert Palmers former girlfriend inherit his mansion in Lugano Switzerland I have read comments by his grown children that the Estate was sold?

No, Mary Ambrose did not inherit his manison in Lugano, Switzerland. It was sold as part of the Estate of Robert Palmer. The mansion was sold by Soteby's European Real Estate Division in early 2004 at the behest of James Palmer, the Executor of the Estate of Robert Palmer. According to James Palmer, the proceeds of the sale were distributed equally among Robert Palmer's five children.

Did Mary Ambrose inherit Robert Palmers mansion in Switzerland and what is she up to these days?

No she didn't. The mansion became part of the Estate of Robert Palmer when the will was probated. It was put on the market by James Palmer, the Executor of the Estate of Robert Palmer in late 2003. Sotoby's European Swiss Real Estate Division sold the mansion in early 2004. Mary Ambrose did not do very well after Robert Palmer died and she did not inherit in any significant way from his estate. Her total inheritance was $16,000.00. She is now incarcerated in a federal penitentiary on an investment fraud conviction but is elegable for parole in 2012. Unfortunatley, this is her third stay behind bars. She served time in 1997 in a county jail for pandering, and in 2005 she served time in a federal penitentiary for Extortion. Her three children are now being raised by her brother, Michael Ambrose, Jr., in the State of New York.

The court did not have enough evidence to to proceed with the case and dismissed the case as "without merit."

What is Robert palmer's girlfriend Mary Ambrose doing now?

After the death of Robert Palmer, Mary Ambrose sued the Estate of Robert Palmer but did not prevail. Robert Palmer did die testate and although his Last Will and Testament was challenged by Ambrose, the Will eventually stood as written. Ambrose's final suit was brought in 2007, when her legal options were extinguised. Ambrose's luck did not hold after Robert Palmer's death and she is now serving time on a prison sentence for a 2011 conviction on a white collar crime. This is not her first time behind bars, she has also served time in 1997 and 2005. Most recently, Mary Ambrose has put up social networking sites alleging that she is living in Ticino, Switzerland residing in the home that she and Robert Palmer shared. Although Mary Ambrose resided with Robert Palmer as his estate manager and personal assistant, Robert Palmer was engaged to Geraldine Edwards at the time of his death, although he did date Ambrose prior to that. Also, the house was sold as part of the estate once it entered probate and was sold by Soteby's European/Swiss Real Estate Division in 2004, it's proceeds divided among the five Palmer children as were the wishes of the late Robert Palmer. Ambrose has most recently been living in Southern California according to members of her family prior to her incarceration. She will be elegible for parole in 2012, and more than likely will be released back into the community to spend the remainder of her sentence on parole. In 2011, Ambrose's parential rights were extingused by the State of California to her three children, born in 2001, 2002 and 2008 due to her competance as a parent. The children are now being reared by a relative of Ambrose's. None of the children belonged to Robert Palmer. Although Mary Ambrose has had her problems in the past, two of her cousins have backed her up on her most recent Web site, by the name of Susan and William. Although Ambrose has tried to present them as her sister and brother, they are in fact her cousins. William went so far as to claim that he is residing at the Palmer Estate with Mary Ambrose alleging still that Mary Ambrose did inherit the house. The house was in fact sold to a European Corporation in 2004. According to Mary Ambrose's uncle, Harvey Ambrose, his niece will not return to Southern California when she has completed serving her sentence. Ambrose has advised him that she will relocate to New York.

How was Mary Ambrose case vs estate of Robert Palmer resolved?

Robert Palmer did die testate. His Last Will and Testament was lodged with the Bahamian courts. Robert Palmer did alter his Will, after his divorce in addition to adding a codicil to the document at that time. Robert had two grown children from his marriage Susan Palmer. The majority of his Estate, including his mansion in Lugano, did go to his children.

Did Mary Ambrose the woman who unsuccessfully sued the Estate of Robert Palmer file a third case through the Hauge Convention?

Yes she did. In fact the case brought by Mary Ambrose was the first matter tried by the Hauge Convention, established in 2007, giving the matter some importance. The Hauge Convention is an International Law Tribunal that allows any citizen of a country attached to the United Nations to appeal a final court decision and officially re-open the matter. In the matter of "Mary Ambrose v. The Paris, France Probate Court" the grounds were that it was illegal for the Paris, France Court to assign a Third Party Administrator (Mark Palmer) to the Estate of Robert Palmer in 2004. The second issue was questioning the legality of James Palmer, the Executor of the Estate of Robert Palmer, to be named as the Sole Trustee of the Estate. If the Hauge Convention had decided in Mary Ambrose's favour, she would have had an opportunity to, once again, sue the Estate of Robert Palmer, for a third time. In short, Mary Ambrose's legal counsel were looking for the proverbial loophole. The Hauge Convention found as follows: the Appointment of Mark Palmer, Robert Palmer's brother, as the Third Party Administrator (at the request of James Palmer) was legal, as well as the naming of James Palmer as the Sole Trustee of the Estate of Robert Palmer. This was Mary Ambrose's final appeal (Sept. 19, 2007) and thus Mary Ambrose has no further legal recourse in suing the Estate of Robert Palmer. Her final settlement remained $16,000.00. This figure was made public by the International Court. The matter was filed through the Ticino Court System as that was Robert Palmer's last legal address in his lifetime, Lake Lugano, Ticino-Regano, Switzerland, and that is the policy of the Hauge Convention. In a probate case, the matter must be filed with the Court that is attached to the Decedant's last known legal address as it holds the strongest jurisdiction.

Was Mary Ambrose the woman who sued the Estate of Robert Palmer featured in any of his video performances of Addicted to Love?

The answer is no, per EMI Records and Elizabeth Freund, the late Robert Palmer's publicist. Mary Ambrose did not appear in any videotaped performances of Addicted to Love. In fact, Mary Ambrose did not appear in any Robert Palmer videos at all. I am not trying to be rude, but Mary Ambrose was neither a model or a dancer. In pictures that I have seen of her, no offense, she is heavy set and not suited to either modeling or dancing. Mary Ambrose did contribute some backing vocals on Drive as well as backing vocals on Rhythm and Blues. It was known that Mary Ambrose was interested in entering the music business and Robert Palmer was kind enough to give her some experience in this range.

Is it true that Mick Carter the manager of the late Robert Palmer tried to get himself assigned to the Estate of Robert Palmer as a Trustee?

Did Mary Ambrose the woman who worked for and casually dated Robert Palmer write True Love with him?

Why did some articles refer to Mary Ambrose Robert Palmers ex-girlfriend as his girlfriend of twenty years when they dated for three years and broke up in 2003?

The reason for the misreports are simple; Mick Carter, representing himself as Robert Palmer's manager provided this information to the press and they printed it, taking him at his word. Unfortunately, by the time Robert Palmer had died, Mick Carter had been fired. He made a series of dubious reports about his former client, Robert Palmer, after his death, in a forty-eight hour time period proceeding Robert Palmer's death. When the facts were brought to bear i.e. that Mick Carter had been fired prior to Robert Palmer's death, he was legally stopped from making any further announcements about Robert Palmer. But in that forty-eight hour time period issuing a series of false reports regarding Robert Palmer, he had done a lot of damage. These are the correct facts about Mary Ambrose vis-a-vis her relationship with Robert Palmer. Mary Ambrose dated Robert Palmer from mid-2000 to early 2003. She had met him socially in 1995 in Coronado, California, but the two did not date until mid-2000, when Robert Palmer hired Ambrose as his live-in Estate Manager and Personal Assistant. Prior to that he had been married to his second wife, Susan Eileen Thatcher until 1999. The relationship between Robert Palmer and Mary Ambrose was not monagamous, and Robert Palmer ended his personal relationship with her in early 2003. The entire time that Robert Palmer was dating Mary Ambrose he was also involved with Geraldine Edwards, who he represented as his girlfriend. By early 2003, Robert Palmer and Geraldine Edwards had become engaged and were looking for a home together in the Los Angeles area. In Robert Palmer's last Access Hollywood interview prior to his death, he announced Geraldine Edwards name as that of his girlfriend he had recently become engaged to. The motivation for Mick Carter deliberatly misreporting Mary Ambrose's name as Robert Palmer's girlfriend was also simple. He was close friends with her, the two having a son together in 2001, and more importantly, Mick Carter was told by Mary Ambrose that she was going to be the sole inheritor of the Estate of Robert Palmer which was valued at $54 million dollars. One can surmise that Mick Carter saw money in his future coming from the Estate. He was willing to report any information that Mary Ambrose provided him with to the press. In addition to that, Mick Carter disliked Geraldine Edwards, Robert Palmer's fiancee, intently. She was partly responsible for Robert Palmer auditing his accounts which led directly to the firing of Carter. Later, the entire house of cards fell apart when friends and family members of Robert Palmer's came forward to report the situation in a public way. Mary Ambrose's family was instrumental in correcting the record, their actions were honorable. They were the first to point out that Mary Catherine Ambrose was only twenty-six years old at the time of Robert Palmer's death, and that for some strange reason she tried to start representing her name as Mary Frances Ambrose. They made perfectecly clear what Mary Ambrose's name was and how old she was, which was that her name was Mary Catherine Ambrose, not Mary Frances, and that she was born in June of 1977, making her twenty-six years old at the time of Robert Palmer's death. Her brother Michael Ambrose Jr, made a funny statement to the press, saying "I know my sister was not dating Robert Palmer when she was six years old." The incorrect information provided by some articles can be laid at the door of Mick Carter exclusively, when he chose to misreport the facts to suit himself and Mary Ambrose.
