(CNS) – Actress-writer Carrie Fisher’s assets upon her death included a mix of bank accounts, ownership interests in companies, jewelry, artwork, rights of publicity and film residuals, according to court papers filed by the trustee of her living trust.
The petitioner, Dennis King, filed the documents Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court. He is asking a judge to have all of Fisher’s assets declared part of the Carrie Fisher Living Trust, which King says was her wish before she died. The trust’s beneficiary is Fisher’s daughter, actress Billie Catherine Lourd.
King says Fisher believed her prior attorney, who is now also dead, “had already taken care of funding her trust.”
The court papers do not state either the individual or overall worth of Fisher’s assets. The belongings include a 100 percent interest in both Carrie Fisher Properties LLC and Carrie Fisher Online LLC; a life insurance policy with Transamerica Occidental Life Insurance Co.; rights of publicity related to the use of her name; residuals from her film works and performances; future rights to patents and trademarks; plus jewelry, artwork and a 2016 Tesla Model S P90D, which typically sells for more than $100,000.
A hearing on King’s petition is scheduled for May 9.
Fisher, known for playing Princess Leia in the “Star Wars” film series, died Dec. 27 at age 60, a day before the death of her mother, actress Debbie Reynolds, at age 84.
