LOS ANGELES, July 10 (UPI) -- Speculation about how much Marlon Brando's estate is worth and who will get pieces of it were rife Saturday, ahead of a public look into the actor's holdings.
Although some reports suggested the two-time Oscar winner died virtually penniless, USA Today says Brando left an estate valued at approximately $21.6 million, with much of it in real estate.
Brando died July 1 in Los Angeles of lung failure, E! Online reported.
Sources say the bulk of Brando's consists of his home on Mulholland Drive in Beverly Hills, valued at up to $10 million, and his Tetiaroa resort, a string of 11 tiny islands in Tahiti, which he bought in the 1960s for approximately $250,000.
Brando's eight surviving children from four women are expected to be the will's beneficiaries. The offspring have reportedly retained a slew of lawyers to ensure each recei ves a fair share.
Overseeing the will's execution will be friend and producer Mike Medavoy, business manager Larry Dressler, and friend Arva Douglas.
