Hoffman’s estranged partner Mimi O’Donnell will inherit his entire estate, according to reports. The actor wrote his will back in 2004 and made sure to include strict instructions regarding his son.
According to TMZ, Hoffman’s will requests that Cooper, his 10-year-old son, be raised in Manhattan so he may experience the culture, arts and architecture the Big Apple provides. If O’Donnell can’t meet that request, Hoffman asks that the boy live in either Chicago or San Francisco. If Cooper can’t call either place home, Hoffman hoped he would be able to visit at least twice a year.
Philip and his son were very close. The proud father was often seen sitting courtside at the boy’s basketball games.
“My spare time is really about hanging out with my kids,” Hoffman told Us in a previous interview. “If I’m free, a good chunk of that is going to be thinking about how to hand out with them.”
Hoffman had been battling a substance abuse problem for many years. He tragically lost that battle earlier this month. A friend found the actor dead at the age of 46 in his Greenwich Village apartment with a syringe in his arm. Investigators later discovered multiple bags of heroin, used and unused, in the apartment.
Philip also leaves behind two young daughters, Tallulah and Willa.
