Hoffman was found dead in a New York City apartment on Feb. 2 at the age of 46. After struggling with drug addiction early on, Hoffman was sober for 23 years until he relapsed in 2013.

He was survived by his longtime partner, Mimi O'Donnell, and their three children, Cooper, Tallulah and Willa. Hoffman left everything to O'Donnell, with Cooper as a backup.

According to an interview with his accountant, Hoffman rejected setting up trust funds for the children on more than one occasion.
