Duh. It’s come out now since Gandolfini’s tragic passing recently that the majority of his fortune was left to his 2 children and his widow.
His son Michael, 13, and daughter Liliana, 8 months, as well as wife Deborah Lin and two sisters. Teenaged Michael will receive the bulk of the fortune, which is being kept safe in a trust fund until he turns 21. Michael, who first discovered his father’s body inside the bathroom of their Rome hotel suite in late June, will receive his father’s clothing and jewelry, and a condo (which includes a parking space) in NYC’s Greenwich Village.
Michael and Lily will divvy up their late father’s estate in Italy 50-50 when the little girl turns 25, the will reveals. “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,” the Zero Dark Thirty star wrote in the document, signed last December.
Before his passing, Gandolfini’s other properties included a $1.1 million home in Califon, NJ and a $7 million duplex in NYC’s Tribeca nabe, neither of which were specifically mentioned in Tuesday’s documents.
He also gave a good chunk of money to his assistant and his secretary. So very sad. He seemed like a very sweet and loving (and generous) man. So sad that he passed so young. He’ll be missed by family and Hollywood. Since his passing I’ve heard and learned so much more about him than I ever read while he was alive. And he was truly loved in the community of celebrity and no one had a bad word to say about him. So sad.
