Gary Moore estate update

An update on the estate of guitarist Gary Moore, who died in 2011, has been made public.

The Daily Mail reports the former Thin Lizzy guitarist left none of his £2million estate to his devoted partner, girlfriend Petra Nioduschewski, because he did not draw up a will.

Nioduschewski battled in vain to resuscitate Moore in their room at a luxury hotel in Spain on February 6, 2011 as he died from a heart attack following a night of heavy drinking.

Moore had reportedly proposed to her hours before his death; the couple had lived together at his £635,000 home in Hove.

Probate records reveal that the guitarist left a net estate of £2,088,134 after liabilities.

But High Court documents state that he did not leave a will so, under intestate rules, it is believed his fortune will be split between his four children.

The guitarist had two sons, Jack and Gus, from his marriage to health therapist Kerry Booth, which lasted from 1985 to 1993; and a daughter, Lily, during a ten-year relationship with artist Jo Rendle. Moore also had an older daughter, Saoirse, from an earlier affair.
