It pays to be part of Tony Soprano’s real-life “family.”
James Gandolfini left millions of dollars to relatives and friends — including his personal secretary and assistant — in his will, which was quietly filed in Manhattan Surrogate’s Court yesterday.
But the biggest chunk of the late “Sopranos” star’s bada-ching will go to his two kids — “beloved’’ son Michael, 13, and daughter Liliana Ruth, 8 months — as well as his wife, Deborah Lin, and his two sisters.
The star of the HBO mob hit was estimated to be worth up to $70 million when he died at age 51 on June 16.
Michael — who found his father’s body in the bathroom of their Rome hotel suite — appears to get the bulk of the estate through a trust set aside for him until he turns 21.
And through the trust, he will also get first dibs to buy his dad’s Greenwich Street condo in the West Village. The home comes with a precious parking space, the document notes.
Michael also automatically gets all of his dad’s clothing and jewelry, according to the court papers.
