  • Keeping it in the family. Philip Seymour Hoffman has left his entire estate to his estranged partner Mimi O'Donnell, TMZ reports. The late Capote actor wrote his will back in 2004, and also left strict instructions about his son Cooper.

    According to the site, Hoffman's will asks for his 10-year-old son to be raised in Manhattan so he could experience the culture, arts, and architecture that the city provides. (Downtown Manhattan is where the family resided at the time of the star's tragic death; Hoffman lived separately at the time in a Greenwich Village apartment.) If the request can not be met, Hoffman wants his only boy to either live in Chicago or San Francisco. If the two cities don't become his home, he hopes Cooper visits them at least twice a year. Possibly living in Hollywood, a location Hoffman often visited, was not mentioned.

    Hoffman and Cooper were close, and the Oscar winner often sat courtside at Cooper's basketball games. "My spare time is really about hanging out with my kids," Hoffman previously told Us. "If I'm free, a good chunk of that is going to be thinking about how to hang out with them."

    Hoffman was found dead at the age of 46 in his New York apartment on Feb. 2 of an apparent heroin overdose. Some of his famous friends like Michelle Williams, Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Justin Theroux, and many more attended his private funeral on the Upper East Side in New York on Feb. 6.

    Hoffman and costume designer O'Donnell are also parents to daughters Tallulah, 7, and Willa, 5.
