Late Actress Lauren Bacall Leaves $10K To Her Dog
Actress Lauren Bacall, who passed away earlier this month at the age of 89, has left $10,000 of her fortune to her pet pooch Sophie.
The late star's will was read this week and the paperwork was made public when it was filed in Manhattan Surrogate's court on Friday, revealing who's getting what of her $26.6 million estate.
The New York Daily News' Page Six reports that her two grandsons will each receive $250,000 which is to be used for their college educations, the remainder of which (if any) they'll receive when they turn 30.
The actress was also generous to two of her employees, one household assistant getting $20k, while $15,000 went to her maid of 14 years.
The rest of the money and assets will be divided among her three children, Leslie and Stephen Bogart, both from her marriage to late Hollywood icon Humphrey Bogart, and Sam Robards, from her marriage to actor Jason Robards.
Bacall's three children were all named as estate executors, and she requested that they keep her personal items private in the 10-page will, which was penned in September 2013.
"I request that my children respect my wish to keep private certain personal letters, writings, diaries and other papers or memorabilia," Bacall wrote.
As for Sophie -- the $10k was actually left to son Sam, who will assume caring for the dog.
