Carrie Fisher's Daughter Billie Lourd to Inherit Nearly $7 Million

American actress Billie Lourd will receive nearly U$6.8 million (AU$8.63 million) from her mother's estate, according to new court documents.

In new docs filed by the executor of Carrie's estate, Billie stands to inherit $6.8 million in personal property left by Carrie.

Fisher's assets include a life insurance policy, ownership of various LLCs, multiple bank accounts, a 2016 Tesla S, jewelry, artwork and collectables.

Apart from those, Lourd is also set to inherit the rights to the late screen legend's image and likeness, as well as her intellectual property rights, including proceeds from her books, specials, trademarks and copyrights.

There could be more inheritance coming her way as according to reports, the probate case does not reflect money that could be in various trusts. She was 84 years old. The estate is on the market for US$18 million (AU$22.9 million), and the proceeds of which is expected to be incorporated into the trust, which Lourd is the beneficiary. It has been heard that the actress has some possibility of inheriting more than the amount of property disclosed. In The Last Jedi, sadly, fans will also be saying goodbye to Leia Organa due to the sudden passing of actress Carrie Fisher late previous year.

Fisher's mother Debbie Reynolds - star of beloved classics such as The Unsinkable Molly Brown and Singin' In The Rain - passed away a day after her daughter from an intracerebral haemorrhage, with hypertension a contributing factor. The Scream Queens and Star Wars: The Force Awakens actress will share the wealth with various charities when she auctions off some of her mother's memorabilia next month.

"If life's not amusing, then it's just true - and that would be unacceptable", she explained. Even when [my mom] died, that was what got me through that whole thing. "When Debbie died the next day, I could just picture her saying, 'Well, she's upstaging me once again, of course - she had to'". The cause of death on her death certificate is cardiac arrest. She was so good at it. I'll miss her energy.

And now that Carrie Fisher is gone, she admits that she is finally living her life outside of her mother's and grandmother's shadows.
