Probate solicitor news – Winehouse estate details
The probate solicitor revelations come as something as a surprise to many within the celebrity news media, which predicted that the singer’s estate would be worth in excess of £10 million.
However, when inheritance tax and debts are taken into account, the beneficiaries of Winehouse’s will, her parents, will receive a figure closer to £1.5 million each.
The singer died last autumn as a result of complications caused by alcohol poisoning – a coroner’s inquest recorded a verdict of death by misadventure.
Because the 27-year-old singer did not leave a will, the money that probate solicitors are to distribute will go to her next of kin. Winehouse’s father is the administrator of the estate.
Furthermore, it has been revealed that her estranged ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil will not receive anything.News
