James Gandolfini’s Will Filed In Manhattan, Actor Leaves Majority Of Fortune To His Children

The will of James Gandolfini was filed in Manhattan Surrogate's Court on Tuesday about two weeks after the actor’s sudden death in Rome. The Sopranos star left the majority of his $70 million fortune to his wife, Deborah Lin, and two children, 13-year-old Michael and 9-month-old Liliana. He also left millions to his two sisters and smaller portions of money to close friends, godchildren and nieces.

Gandolfini specifically gave Michael all of his clothes, jewelry, and a NYC condo. The inheritance will be protected in trust fund until Michael turns 21. Michael will also share equal ownership of his father’s Italian property with his half-sister Liliana when the 9-month-old 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.

The will was signed on December 19, 2012.

Gandolfini died of a heart attack on June 16. He was 51-years-old.
