Does Obamacare cover years of intense psychotherapy? If so, somebody let his kids know.
Philip Seymour Hoffman had amassed quite the estate after 25 years in the business and when he died tragically on Feb. 2 of a heroin overdose, he had his estate in order per his exact wishes. According to probate documents filed in New York City and obtained Monday by E! News, Hoffman had told his former accountant that he “did not want his children to be considered ‘trust fund’ kids,” and therefore left the entirety of his reported $35 million estate to his partner Mimi O’Donnell. David Friedman, who had advised Hoffman in financial matters, told attorney James H. Hill that the Capote star had told him as recently as one year before his death that his wishes had not changed as far as leaving all the money to Mimi, knowing she’d be raising their children with that money.
Sure, Philip Seymour Hoffman was a fantastic actor, but let’s be real for a minute. He didn’t die “tragically”. He died because he was a heroin junkie. That’s pretty high on the list of things that can be easily avoided. He also apparently wants to teach his kids a valuable lesson by allowing them to grow up without a father, who on the way to the grave, told them to fuck off one last time by denying them any benefits of the career that took him away from them in the first place. I feel like my extensive use of pronouns in this post makes it lose some of its power. Anyway, dick move bro.
