ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (1010 WINS) -- Veronica Beckham used to be a stripper at Scores in Atlantic City. That's where she struck up a friendship with a customer by the name of Mickey Liu -- he was the head of IT at HBO.

Liu was also overweight with a lot of health problems and was found dead in his Manhattan apartment about three years ago.

Before he died, the New York Post reports, he remembered to name Veronica as the beneficiary of his retirement accounts and a life insurance policy worth a combined $223,000.

Mickey's family predictably objected, arguing that Beckham was in the habit of applying coercion and manipulation upon men like Mickey.

A court disagreed and Veronica will get the money.
