I'm pretty sure his estate will make all that money back. I'm sure people are out there rushing to buy his music again... I mean his songs and albums are on the top 10 on iTunes!

I hope his kids at least get to walk away with something.

Holy crapola. I kind of figured he owed some money to some people, since he had to settle all those lawsuits and kept buying ridiculous things (like the Elephant Man's skeleton) without making anything. That is really sad...I also feel for his family. That's got to be so hard on them.

Gosh, this has got to be so hard for his poor family. I just hope his children will be taken care of, and hopefully, in the future, won't need to sell all of their dad's things to live a comfortable life.
