Anne Heche left S$147,000 — including S$44,000 in uncashed royalties, residual cheques from Hollywood Studios — after her death, according to son

Anne Heche died in August 2022, a week after she was critically injured in a car crash in Los Angeles.


Anne Heche left around US$110,000 (S$147,0000) following her death, including US$33,000 in 27 uncashed royalty and residual cheques.

The Donnie Brasco actress died in August following a car crash, and now her 21-year-old son Homer Laffoon — who was granted control of her estate in November — has revealed she had nearly US$77,000 in a bank account at the time of her tragic passing.

According to court documents discovered by the Daily Mail, some of the uncashed cheques were from the likes of Disney, Paramount and Warner Bros.

The largest was a US$25,000 cheque from Cast and Crew Production Services, dated June 10, 2022.

In January, Laffoon took to his late mother's Instagram account to announce the launch of her posthumous book.

He thanked fans for their "overwhelming" support as he shared details of Call Me Anne, five months after Heche was taken off life support following her fireball car crash.

Laffoon wrote: “Homer here. Never imagined I’d find myself responsible for mom’s IG account, but here we are.
“First things first, from August to now, the amount of love, care and support shown by those on social media and IRL has been overwhelming and blessedly received - thank you.

“One day at a time is working for me as I’m sure the healing journey will be a long one. Your good thoughts and well wishes will continue to comfort me on my path.

“But this is my mom’s account so enough about me. I have a responsibility to share with her community what she was working on and how excited she would have been to tell you herself.

“My mom had a completed manuscript for a second book at the time of her passing. The book is the product of mom’s further efforts to share her story and to help others where she could.

“‘Call Me Anne’ is the result and I know she was excited to share with the world.

“So, mom, here I am sharing it with the community you created, may it flourish and take on a life of its own, as you would have wanted.

“For those in Los Angeles, there will be a special event at the Barnes and Noble at The Grove. I know mom would want to see everyone's smiling face as she read an excerpt and signed copies.

“I don’t plan on using this platform too often but know she loved her fans, loved writing (she wrote endlessly) and it would not feel right not to reach out at a time like this.

“As mom liked to sign off, Peace and love, Homer. (sic)"

Heche was among the actors who were excluded from the 2023 Oscars' 'In Memoriam' segment. Other omissions include Tom Sizemore, Leslie Jordan, and Paul Sorvino.— BANG SHOWBIZ
