Pavarotti estate dispute sets example

Posted on November 6th, 2010 No Comments

When famed operatic singer Luciano Pavarotti died in 2008 after a yearlong battle with cancer, there was a dispute over how to divide up his estate.

Pavarotti had drafted two wills near the end of his life; one divided his assets by Italian law and left half to his second wife, Nicoletta Mantovani, and the other half to his four daughters. But his second, American, will left all his American holdings to Ms. Mantovani.

His late wife’s lawyer declined to share details of the resolution with the public but Pavarotti’s daughters and Ms. Mantovani came to a “friendly agreement” over how to settle the dispute.
