The kids say Craig Sager’s second wife, Stacy, has hounded them about the will.
Craig Sager’s three children from his first marriage—Craig II, Kacy and Krista—were left out of their father’s will and his second wife won’t drop the issue, two of the kids say.
Craig II went public with the drama on Tuesday night.
Nothing like getting served, pestered by Sherrifs & taken to court over a Will that myself and my sisters are not only 100% excluded from but do not even have any interest in contesting in the first place. Thanks Dad 👌— Craig Sager II (@CraigSagerJr) January 2, 2018
Kacy said she and her siblings didn’t intend to contest the will but Sager’s second wife, Stacy, “still sent sheriffs to our doors to drag us to court.” Both children say they just want to put the issue behind them.
Never contended anything to do w/ a will when I found out bc primarily I expected it & it’s what he wanted. It is what it is. We put our heads down & moved the hell on. But 2018 & I’m called on vacation bc another Sheriff came by— Craig Sager II (@CraigSagerJr) January 3, 2018
I’m not in it
I’m not fighting

Kacy also said that she, Craig II and Krista have been “banned” from working with the Sager Strong Foundation, and that the charity’s Twitter account had liked at least one tweet critical of Kacy’s side of the story.
Shocker! The account for the @sagerstrong foundation, from which we have been 100% excluded (thus why you never see us at NBA events honoring it) is liking tweets from bigoted a-holes.— Kacy Sager (@THESagerbomb) January 3, 2018
Yet no one can even pick up a phone & call us. Gotta make sheriffs/lawyers do it for ya... pic.twitter.com/x4lk91knMt
In a lengthy statement posted Wednesday afternoon, Kacy outlined various other contentious moments with Stacy. Stacy “hired security” to keep Sager’s first wife from attending his funeral and wouldn’t let Kacy into her father’s house the day before he died, Kacy said.
“He wasn’t a perfect man, and that’s OK,” Kacy wrote. “I loved him anyways. I can admit that he had his faults and still think he’s deserving of all the support and admiration he has received. It seems, however, that Stacy is incapable of doing the same, because admitting he wasn’t perfect would be an admission that she isn’t perfect, either.”
Sager married his first wife, Lisa, in 1980 and the couple had three children. While he was still married, he began dating Stacy and the couple married in 2002. They had two children together, Ryan and Riley.
Sager died in December 2016 after a long battle with leukemia.
