Who Luke Perry Left His Fortune To SUBSCRIBE: https://youtu.be/4JLjF89hz34 : https://youtube.com/ashbgame : The late Luke Perry was a successful actor for decades, having first made it in Hollywood with the popular ’90s teen soap Beverly Hills, 90210. Beyond his role as bad boy heartthrob Dylan McKay, he also gained fame by acting in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer film, the cult sci-fi classic The Fifth Element, and, more recently, in the CW’s Riverdale.
So, with a great number of projects under his belt, IMDb lists 95 credits to his name, it’s no surprise that Perry was able to accumulate some serious money over the years. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Perry had an estimated net worth of $10 million when he passed away.
So who will receive the millions he left behind? A source told Radar Online that Perry created a will several years before his untimely passing this week. Perry had a health scare in 2015, when pre-cancerous growths were found during a colonoscopy. The source said that Perry, quote, “didn’t want to leave anything to chance.”
The insider revealed that Perry, in fact, left all of his money to his two children, his 21-year-old son Jack, an up-and-coming professional wrestler known as “Jungle Boy” Nate Coy, and his 18-year-old daughter Sophie. A source told Radar,
“Luke loved his kids more than life itself.”
Perry passed away after suffering a massive stroke at his home on February 27th, 2019. While he was initially said to have been responsive when paramedics arrived at his home, his condition reportedly deteriorated. At the hospital, Perry was sedated in an effort to give his brain a chance to recover from the trauma, but the damage he sustained from the stroke was too severe. According to Radar, Perry suffered a second stroke in the hospital, which is what reportedly what caused his death on March 4th. He was 52 years old.
According to TMZ, Perry was surrounded by loved ones before he passed, including his children and their mother, his ex-wife, Rachel “Minnie” Sharp. People reports that daughter Sophie rushed to her father’s side in Los Angeles, traveling from Africa, where she’d spent a month in Malawi.
In a statement, a spokesperson for Perry’s family told Radar,
“His family appreciates the outpouring of support and prayers that have been extended to Luke from around the world, and respectfully request privacy in this time of great mourning.”
In lieu of flowers, Perry’s family reportedly asked that people donate to Fight Colorectal Cancer, a cause he held dear, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Since Perry’s passing, many celebrities, including Perry’s Riverdale co-stars, have spoken out to publicly grieve the actor’s death and offer their condolences to his family. Lili Reinhart, who plays Betty Cooper on the CW show, tweeted,
“I’m finding it hard to grasp that he will no longer be around to give long hugs and share his wisdom and kindness with all of us. I’m thinking of his family. His children. I pray for them to heal and find peace in this devastating loss. I just can’t believe it.”
Casey Cott, who plays Kevin Keller on Riverdale, posted,
“I’m totally heartbroken. Luke took me under his wing the day I was cast and made me feel like I belonged. He was the most generous, wise soul with unmatched kindness. He treated everyone with love and joy. We had so much fun. Praying for his family.”
Riverdale also shut down production on the show, as castmates and crew mourn, according to Variety.
