    Pretty crazy.
    I believe he had a very substantial trust set up for his daughter that not included in the 1.2M.

    I saw that TMZ reported he had a trust set up outside the will. I certainly hope he did, but there was no amount disclosed (by the TMZ report) and not real logic to their claim that he had "a lot more money" as their "source" was the will itself.

    Again, I hope that he planned really well, but the fact that he had roughly 4 times below the old estate limits left outside of trusts leads me to believe that his estate docs were either very outdated or poorly conceived. JMO.

    How could such a self described omniscient as Bourdain not have known what to do...especially when he KNEW he was about to die? You Bourdain fanatics think about that.

    If he transferred his wealth into a trust wherein he was not the beneficiary, why would the will disclose the value of the trust? The trust is not part of his estate.

    It wouldnít. I was commenting on TMZ referring to the will as the source of their knowledge that he had much more money outside the will.

    Why do you think leaving a large estate was important to Bourdain?

    ďThe reports of my net worth are about ten times overstated. I think the people who calculate these things assume that I live a lot more sensibly than I do. I mean, I donít live recklessly ó I have one car. But I donít deprive myself simple pleasures. Iím not a haggler. Thereís not enough time in the world. I tend to go for the quickest, easiest, whatís comfortable. I want it now. Timeís running out.Ē

    ďIíd like my daughter and her mom looked after, both while Iím alive and after. They shouldnít have to worry if something bad happens, so my investments and savings are based on that. Iím super-conservative. Money doesnít particularly excite or thrill me; the making of money gives me no particular satisfaction. To me, money is freedom from insecurity, freedom to move, time if you choose to make use of time. My investments advisor understands that Iím not looking to score big on the stock market or bonds. I have zero understanding of it and zero interest. Life is too short. I like a limited amount of mail, and a limited amount of conversations with people who make the investments. If the moneyís not less money every time I look at it, Iím pretty happy. If itís a little bit more, great.Ē

    That sounds exactly like him. And I agree with his philosophy on money. It isnít nearly as important as people make it out to be. The best thing money can buy is time and freedom and it is what you make of the time and freedom that really matters.

    ......and yet, he voluntarily chose to reduce that amount of time he had remaining.

    Yeah, which is why this one is so perplexing as he APPEARED to be enjoying himself (from what the camera sees). Clearly there is more going on - depression? Drug addiction came back? Other suffering? Who knows?
