Celebrity Disputes

A will signed by Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman named his girlfriend, Mimi O’Donnel, as the executor of his estate, leaving his kids with no inheritance, a report by CNN revealed on July 22.

The 13-page will signed by Hoffman in 2004 stated that his entire estate be given to his partner, who is also the mother of his three children. Court documents have shown the actor is confident that O’Donnell will take care of his children. However, Hoffman named his eldest son the executor of his will as recourse should O’Donnell have passed away before him.

The will also stated that Hoffman’s eldest should be raised in certain culturally rich cities.

The four-time Academy Awards nominee and 2006 Oscars best actor died of heroin abuse last February.
