Fitness Star Greg Plitt Dies Intestate

Greg plitt

When Bravo T.V. fitness star Gregg Plitt was tragically hit and killed by a commuter train while shooting a sports drink commercial last month, he did not have a will.  Now, Plitt’s family is trying to ensure his $800,000 estate ends up in the right hands. 

The 37-year-old did not have a spouse or child when he died, and according to court documents, his father filed a petition to control his son’s estate. Regardless as to whether a petition is filed, the California intestacy statute requires that his parents will share his estate.
