Usually, parents want to make sure that their kids are taken care of for the rest of their lives, but sadly that wasn’t quite the case this time.
When Philip Seymour Hoffman died, he left behind ten-year-old Cooper, seven-year-old Tallulah, and five-year-old Willa, but he left them with nothing.
New court documents were filed on July 18th in Manhattan Surrogate Court, stating that accountant David Friedman and PSH had talked about setting up a trust for his kids previously, but that he wanted all of his $35 million to go to their mom, and his longtime partner Mimi O’Donnell.
Why, you ask?
Because the actor didn’t want them to be trust fund kids! The accountant also added that Philip treated Mimi like a wife as well, even though they weren't married.
The good news is that since Mimi is the kids’ mother, the money will likely be spent on them anyway. Hopefully she sets up something for her trio though, because not all trust fund kids turn out badly, and at least they’ll be taken care of!
