Hutchence's Will Upsets Family

 

12 March 2002

When rock star Michael Hutchence died in November 1997, his family believed he was worth more than $10 million. But the final distribution figures for the estate of the 37-year-old INXS frontman reveal he had only about $60,000 to his name after all of his years at the top of the music world. And the Hutchence family will see none of that.
It appears in Hutchence's will - dated October 1996 - he allocated half his wealth to his daughter, Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily and equal shares to his mother, father, half-sister, brother and lover Paula Yates.
But the first $1 million realised from the estate had to be split between Greenpeace and Amnesty International.
As of March 4, lawyers wrote that all matters had been finalised except for the sale of a few of Hutchence's personal possessions held in a safe deposit box at Monaco Bank, which include three guitars and oil paintings worth about $20,000.
Sources say that Hutchence's mother Patricia Glassop cannot believe the outcome of events, saying: "Would anyone seriously believe that Michael did not want to leave anything to his family, including Tiger?".
Only the great man himself knows.
