Sopranos Star James Gandolfini Leaves Most Of £46 Million Estate To Son, 13, And Eight-Month-Old Daughter

Sopranos star James Gandolfini leaves most of £46 million estate to son and daughter

The late Sopranos star James Gandolfini left the bulk of his £46 million fortune to his 13-year-old son Michael and eight-month-old daughter Liliana.

The actor, who died of a heart attack while on holiday in Italy last month, also left millions to his wife, his two older sisters and friends - including his personal secretary and assistant.

The 51-year-old's will was signed on December 19 last year and filed in Manhattan Surrogate's Court on Tuesday.

It shows Gandolfini's teenage son by his first wife is to get the largest chunk of his father's estate through a trust set aside for him until he turns 21.

Through the trust, 13-year-old Michael will also be allowed to buy his father's lavish home and parking space in Greenwich Village in Manhattan.

He will split his dad's property in Italy with his half-sister, Liliana, when she turns 25. Gandolfini asked in the documents that they 'keep it in our family for as long as possible'.

There was not specific mention of the actor's other properties but the will made it clear they could be sold.

Gandolfini, who played clinically depressed mob boss Tony Soprano, owned a £4.6million penthouse in Manhattan's Tribeca and a £720,000 home in his native Califon, New Jersey. Michael was also left the actor's jewellery and clothing.

The actor wanted the remainder of his estate split between his wife, Deborah Lin, his sisters, Johanna Antonacci and Leta Gandolfini, and his baby daughter Liliana.

His siblings each get 30 per cent of the leftover estate, while Lin and Liliana will each receive 20 per cent. He also left £328,000 to each of his two nieces, the daughters of Johanna.

He left £131,000 each to his personal assistant and friend, Thomas Richardson, and secretary, Trixie Flynn Bourne, and amounts of £66,000 and £33,000 to other select friends.

The actor was estimated to be worth up to £46 million ($70 million) when he died of a sudden heart attack on June 19 while in Rome.

He was found suffering a heart attack by his son Michael and was pronounced dead in hospital. A funeral for the actor was held in Manhattan last week.
