Mother chooses ex-daughter-in-law's daughter over son in inheritance dispute 😱

A mother has been left wondering if she's the a**hole after choosing her ex-daughter-in-law's child, her grandchild, over her son in an inheritance dispute. The son had cheated on his wife, which led to their divorce, and the mother and her husband took in the ex-daughter-in-law and their granddaughter.

The mother and husband helped raise the granddaughter since the son disowned her after remarrying. When the mother's husband was diagnosed with lung cancer, the granddaughter was devastated and the son didn't visit often. Recently, the son came to discuss inheritance and expressed that he thought he deserved more than his siblings.

When the mother said that she would focus more on the granddaughter, the son became angry and called her a bastard and her mother a whore. The mother stood up for her ex-daughter-in-law and granddaughter, causing the son to storm out.

Now, the mother is receiving backlash from the son's wife and family friends. What do you think of this situation? Share your thoughts in the comments below, and also read what Reddit had to say.
