Millions left by Anton Yelchin with no will

By Tribute on August 2, 2016 | 5 Comments

Anton YelchinVictor and Irina Yelchin, the parents of actor Anton Yelchin, have filed documents revealing that a nearly $1.4 million estate has been left behind by their son. He died with no will on June 19, after being crushed against a gate by his car in his own driveway.

Court records show that on Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court, the two filed to become administrators of Anton’s estate. Anton left behind at least $641,000 in personal property and had $731,000 in equity in his home as well.

It was also reported that an attorney representing Anton’s parents announced that they are planning to file a wrongful death lawsuit against Fiat Chrysler, the company that manufactures the Jeep that killed their son.

While the corporation offered their sympathies to the family in a statement, they could not comment on their plans for a lawsuit. They also added that they are speeding up the recall for the faulty vehicles.

Anton was best known for playing Pavel Chekov in Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness and Star Trek Beyond. ~Natalia Makarski

    The parents should get his money if he had no will and no children. Who thinks of a will at his age. And yes Fiat Chrysler should pay for. The car was faulty.

    Not to sound morbid, but Alton would have made millions more in his acting career, getting more famous from his gig with Star Trek franchise, you can’t put a price tag on a life, but Fiat Chrysler should compensate the family for what he could have potentially made. And of course his family would get his personal wealth now, will or no will.

    I hope they have a copy of his DNA as there are going to be a lot of yahoos out there who will now try to claim that he fathered children just to try and get hold of his estate. Look how many have come out since Prince died. Such a shame

    Such a tragedy for his family – he was truly coming into his own and had a bright future ahead of him. Not leaving a will just means it has to be sorted out – his parents will undoubtably end up with the money it’s just a formality.
