Philip Seymour Hoffman Did Not Want His Kids to Have Trust Funds

Philip Seymour Hoffman Dies Of Drug Overdose In NYC **FILE PHOTOS**

The beloved late actor, Philip Seymour Hoffman, passed away in February due to a heroin overdose.  He left behind three children, a son and two daughters, with his longtime partner, Mimi O’Donnell.  However, he never set up any sort of a trust for his children, because he felt strongly opposed to having ‘spoiled brats.’

While his accountant, David Friedman, repeatedly suggested setting something up for the three children, Hoffman instead chose to the leave the entirety of his estimated $35 million fortune to their mother, O’Donnell, believing that she would “take care of the children.”

O’Donnell and Hoffman were not living together at the time of his death, because she had kicked him out of their shared Jane Street apartment in NYC due to his drug addiction.

In addition to the financial specifications of his will, Hoffman also insisted that his children be raised in one of three places:

“It is my strong desire [that] my son, Cooper Hoffman, be raised and reside in or near the borough of Manhattan [or] Chicago, Illinois, or San Francisco, California,” he said in the will.

It was written in 2004 before the births of his two daughters.

“The purpose of this request is so that my son will be exposed to the culture, arts and architecture that such cities offer,” the Broadway and Hollywood star wrote.

It will be bittersweet to see Hoffman’s film, “A Most Wanted Man,” which is in theaters now.  He will also appear in the remaining Hunger Games films, though he will be digitally reproduced in scenes he was never able to complete.  Such a loss on so many levels.

Philip Seymour Hoffman Dies Of Drug Overdose In NYC **FILE PHOTOS**

According to the NYC medical examiner, Philip Seymour Hoffman‘s official cause of death on February 2nd, was “acute mixed drug intoxication.’  TMZ reports that the drugs found in Hoffman’s system at the time of death were heroin, cocaine, benzodiazepines, and amphetamines.

The much beloved Hunger Games actor, was found dead in his apartment with a needle still stuck in his arm.  He had attended rehab last May in order to prevent a major relapse (he had been sober for over 20 years prior to his death).  He had three children, ages 5, 7, and 10, with his longtime, estranged girlfriend, Mimi O’Donnell.

Four arrests were made related to Hoffman’s overdose, including Robert Vineberg, who was charged with felony heroin possession with an intent to sell.  Vineberg is a sax player for multiple famous artists including Mick Jagger, Amy Winehouse and David Bowie.

So sad.  Addiction is so sad and drugs are so scary.

Philip Seymour Hoffman left his entire estate to his estranged partner, and specific instructions regarding his son.


Philip Seymour Hoffman left his entire estate to his estranged partner, Mimi O’Donnell, according to TMZ. The will was written in 2004, after the birth of his son, but before the birth of his two daughters. He left instructions for where he wanted his son raised.

According to TMZ, Hoffman wanted his 10-year-old son Cooper to be raised in Manhattan so he could experience the culture, arts, and architecture that the city provides. He and his family lived in the city at the time of his death, although they had separate apartments. If the request cannot be met, Philip wants his son to either live in Chicago or San Francisco. If he can’t live in any of those cities, he at least wants his son to visit those cities twice a year.

Hoffman was close to his children. “My spare time is really about hanging out with my kids,” Hoffman previously told Us. “If I’m free, a good chuck of that is going to be thinking about how to hang out with them.”

Philip was found dead at the age of 46 in his NYC apartment of an apparent heroin overdose. He also left behind two daughters, Tallulah, 7, and Willa, 5.

Drake is furious Rolling Stone pulled his cover for a cover of Philip Seymour Hoffman instead.


Drake is fuming that Rolling Stone decided to give Philip Seymour Hoffman the magazine cover over him. And that’s not all. The magazine also ran an article about what he thought was an off-the-record conversation about Kanye West.

The performer tweeted on Thursday that he’s “disgusted” the magazine “took my cover from me last minute and ran the issue.”

Drake wrote, “RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil.”

The rapper also claims his comments about West’s Yeezus album were meant to be off the record.

In a scan of the interview circulating the Internet, Drake is quoted as saying, “There were some real questionable bars on [Yeezus]. Like that ‘Swaghili‘ line? Come on, man. Even Fabolous wouldn’t say some sh*t like that.”

But the star says he didn’t think the magazine was going to publish his remarks.

He tweeted on Thursday, “I never commented on Yeezus for my interview portion of Rolling Stone.”

Drake went on to declare, “I’m done doing interviews for magazines. I just want to give my music to the people. That’s the only way my message gets across accurately.”

Rolling Stone has not yet responded to Drake’s comments.

What did he think was going to happen if he was in an interview? You don’t want something printed – you probably shouldn’t say it in the first place, right??
