James Gandolfini Leaves Millions to Family
(NEW YORK) — James Gandolfini made sure his kids and wife were well taken care of after death in a will he signed just last December.
The New York Post reports that the Sopranos star, who passed away June 19 in Rome, was worth an estimated $70 million at the time of his unexpected death. According to court documents filed in Manhattan Surrogate’s Court on Tuesday, Galdolfini’s wealth is being split between his two sisters, his wife Deborah Lin, his 8-month-old daughter Liliana, and his son Michael, 13, who will receive the majority of the fortune when he turns 21. Gandolfini was on vacation with Michael when he suffered cardiac arrest in his room at Rome’s Hotel Exedra.
The teenager will receive his father’s clothes, jewelry and a New York City condo that includes a parking space. Michael and Liliana will split Gandolfini’s Italian estate evenly, with Liliana receiving her portion 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,” Gandolfini wrote in the legal document.
Also mentioned in the will were Gandolfini’s nieces, friends, godson, and assistant to whom he left $200,000.
