How will Phillip Seymour Hoffman's estate be divided?

Super Bowl Sunday was marred with the news of the sudden death of Phillip Seymour Hoffman. The 46-year-old actor noted for his roles in “Magnolia”, “The Talented Mr. Ripley”, and the “Hunger Games” films was found dead in his New York City apartment. According to numerous media reports about how he was found, Hoffman presumably passed away due to a drug overdose.

Hoffman was also known for his roles on Broadway, as the lights on the iconic street went dark this week to honor the fallen actor.

He was regarded as one of the best actors of his generation, and he won an Academy Award for his portrayal of Truman Capote in the bio-flick that bears his name. Aside from the ongoing investigation into the true cause of his death, several people have been arrested in regards to the drugs found in Hoffman’s apartment.

Hoffman leaves behind long time girlfriend Mimi O’Donnell, and three children; two daughters, Willa and Talullah, and a son, Cooper.  As plans are made to lay him to rest, rumors abound as to how his estate will be divided. Details of his will have not been revealed as of yet, so considerable questions are yet to be answered as to how his children will be provided for.

As such, the great actor’s death should be a reminder to those that life is precious and short. Because of this, plans should be made to deal with tragic events so that loved ones are properly taken care of.
