Rooney’s es­tate comes up short

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - NEWS -

There is a sad epi­logue to the life of Mickey Rooney. Fol­low­ing the star’s death last weekend it was an­nounced that, af­ter 80 years in the busi­ness, his es­tate came to just $18,000. Rooney, who was twice de­clared bank­rupt, had blamed “el­der abuse” and mis­man­age­ment by one of his step­sons. An agree­ment had been struck for the re­turn of mil­lions, but it’s un­likely any of that will go to his sur­viv­ing fam­ily.
