George Michael’s sister left an estate worth £6million after she died without leaving a will.
The late pop legend’s £97million fortune is thought to have been divided between his elder sisters Yioda, 63, and Melanie – who died on Christmas Day 2019 aged 59.
But when Melanie’s affairs were settled, probate papers show her assets were worth £6.2million, The Sun reports.
Hairdresser Melanie is said to have struggled to come to terms with her brother’s death, which occurred exactly three years earlier on Christmas Day 2016.
