Last month the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner determined the Swimming rapper died on Sept. 7 of an accidental overdose of fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol. Due to the sudden circumstances of his death, Miller’s family is struggling to estimate his net worth and the value of his estate.
On Nov. 26, the estate filed documents asking a judge to “appoint a probate referee who can appraise the assets of Miller’s estate, including cash, real estate and personal property,” according to The Blast.
The appraiser will be able to help the family determine how much money was left behind, how much he still receives in royalties, and what his name and likeness is now worth following his death. It’s understandably heartbreaking to try and crunch the numbers on a deceased family member, but unfortunately it’s one of those things that needs to be done, so it’s no surprise his family is seeking professional help.
Once an estimate is reached, the estate will be able to figure out what goes to Miller’s beneficiaries, who include his brother and parents. Mac set up an attorney to handle the estate when he created a trust back in 2013.
The 26-year-old was found found unresponsive in his Studio City home in September, and later buried in his hometown of Pittsburgh. Miller's life was celebrated with a special tribute concert on Halloween night, with performances from friends, collaborators, and fans including John Mayer, Vince Staples, Travis Scott, SZA, and more. "Mac Miller, my brother, never took himself too seriously, y'know?" Anderson .Paak told the crowd during the night's festivities. "One of the funniest people I've ever met. He wasn't afraid to be like, 'Yo, you dope too, come with me.'"
