, who died suddenly on December 25 in the British town of Goring-on Thames, located in the county in Oxfordshire, left a colossal fortune. It is estimated at least at 105 million pounds. And this is not surprising when you consider that more than 100 million copies of the singer’s records have been sold. In addition, he made good money on live performances. So, just for him to sing at the party of millionaire Philip Green in 2007, he was paid one and a half million pounds. However, since Michael’s will has not yet been found, it is not entirely clear who will get his fortune. This was reported by the publication mirror.co.uk.
The problem is that 53-year-old Michael has never been married and has no children either. So his inheritance, apparently, will be claimed by the singer’s two sisters – Melani and Yioda. But besides them, George had a few more godchildren. Among them are two of his nephews – the sons of Andros, cousin Michael, as well as two children of George’s friend – British actor and musician Martin Kemp.
Among the most valuable objects of the singer’s property is his house in Oxfordshire, where his heart stopped: the mansion is estimated at about 8 million pounds. The singer’s real estate in north London is also worth a lot – it’s about 2.5 million. A house located near the beach in Los Angeles is even more expensive: about 3.5 million. The collection of contemporary art collected by Michael is also of great value: among the exhibits there are works by Banksy and Damien Hirst. The installation alone, created by Hirst and purchased by George at an auction in 2006, costs no less than 3.5 million.
