Singer Lou Reed Leaves Substantial Fortune

Lou reed

Lou Reed’s estate has risen by $20.4 million since his death, and according to documents with the Manhattan Surrogate Court, the singer’s estate now totals $30 million. 

The New York Post reports that the additional money “is likely from Reed’s copyright and publishing interests, which, in his will, he instructed [his manager Robert Gotterer] to treat as his own.”

The main beneficiary of Reed’s will is his wife, whom he left his Manhattan apartment and property in the Hamptons.  She will also receive $15 million of the money Gotterer collected. 

See Lou Reed Leaves $30m Fortune, The Guardian, July 1, 2014.
