Inside the Will: James Gandolfini Leaves Millions to Family
James Gandolfini is leaving the bulk of his estate to his children Michael, 13, and Liliana, 8 months, as well as his wife Deborah Lin and other family members.
The "Sopranos" star, who died of a heart attack in Rome on June 16, left an estate reportedly upwards of $70 million. His will was filed in Manhattan's Surrogate Court.
Gandolfini passed on most of his estate to his children. When he turns 21, Michael will receive a trust including a downtown Manhattan apartment (with a parking space) and his father's clothing and jewelry. He and his half-sister will also split Gandolfini's property in Italy 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," the HBO star wrote in the will.
Also mentioned in the will were Gandolfini's wife, sisters, nieces, friends, godson, and assistant (to whom he left $200,000).
