Gandolfini leaves his money to son

Actor James Gandolfini has left the bulk of his estimated 70 million dollar (£46 million) estate to his 13-year-old son and infant daughter.

The "Sopranos" star who died on June 19 also left millions to his wife and relatives.

The New York Post reports that a will dated December 19 has been filed in Manhattan Surrogate's Court.

Gandolfini's son, Michael, is to get the largest chunk through a trust set aside for him until he turns 21. He will split his father's Italian property with his half-sister, eight-month-old Liliana, when she turns 25.

The newspaper says the remainder of Gandolfini's estate will be split among his wife, sisters and daughter.

He left 200,000 dollars each to his personal assistant and secretary.

The will is the first and primary filing of his estate; more documents are expected to be filed.
