As their names were not included in the will, his $16 million estate was set to be divided between his parents and his siblings. 



However, the family later concluded that his daughter Matilda was the primary heir of his estate with Heath's father announcing that Michelle was an "integral part of the family" and "that they would be taken care of."

His father later announced that the family had agreed to leave the $16.3 million fortune to Matilda."There is no claim. Our family has gifted everything to Matilda."
