NEW YORK (AP) — James Gandolfini left the bulk of his estimated $70 million estate to his 13-year-old son and infant daughter.
The late star of HBO's "The Sopranos" left millions of dollars to his wife and relatives.
The New York Post (http://bit.ly/19SMBxF ) reports a will dated Dec. 19 was filed Tuesday in Manhattan Surrogate's Court.
Gandolfini's son, Michael, is to get the largest chunk through a trust set aside for him until he turns 21. He'll split his father's Italian property with 8-month-old half-sister Liliana when she turns 25.
