James Gandolfini Leaves Majority of $70 Million Estate to Son, Daughter
The majority of James Gandolfini's estate -- estimated to be worth $70 million -- is going to family including his 13-year-old son, Michael, and infant daughter, Liliana, The Associated Press reports.
A will for the Sopranos star, who died June 19 of a heart attack at age 51, shows that Michael will get access to a trust fund when he turns 21; he will share his father's property in Italy with his half-sister, who was born last October to the actor and second wife Deborah Lin, when she turns 25. "It is my hope and desire that they will continue to own said property and keep it in our family for as long as possible," he states in the 17-page court document.
The news of the will, dated Dec. 19 and filed Tuesday in New York City, was first reported by The New York Post.
Millions were also left for Lin and Gandolfini's two sisters. Gandolfini also set aside $500,000 for each of his nieces, $200,000 for his personal assistant and $100,000 for his godson.
He was laid to rest last Thursday following funeral services at a cathedral in upper Manhattan, where more than 1,500 mourners gathered to say a final farewell.
