INXS singer's daughter named sole beneficiary

By |

The battle over INXS singer Michael Hutchence's estate that surfaced following his death in November of 1997 has finally reached the end of the road. During a hearing on Monday (March 26th), Justice Richard Chesterman of the Brisbane Supreme Court ruled that Hutchence's only beneficiary is his daughter Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily, whom he had with late TV personality Paula Yates.

Before his death, Hutchence had had set up a trust for his daughter, and Chesterman rejected all other claims on his estate, including those made by members of his own family. The estate was estimated to be worth approximately $25 million at the time of his death, but, according to proceedings, lawyer's fees have cut that figure in half.
