Her parents both commanded the limelight.

But, unlike Michael Hutchence and Paula Yates, their only daughter - Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily - has long lived a rather private, ordinary existence.

The 20 year-old is rarely seen in the public eye and has never cashed-in on her celebrity heritage.

But, despite this, her bank account is set to swell when she inherits millions of pounds from her late father's estate, next week.

According to a report in The Sun , the youngster - who was recently seen posing nude for photographer Kate Bellm - will receive a trust fund from the INXS frontman when she turns 21 on 22 July.

The windfall, which has been accruing royalties since his death nearly 20 years ago, is said to be a substantial sum that will instantly transform her wealth.

But, although it will likely make her an overnight millionaire, it will probably do little to compensate for the tragedies which she suffered from birth.

INXS star Hutchence and TV ­presenter Paula famously began their romance when she interviewed him in flirty fashion on her bed on Channel 4’s Big Breakfast show in January 1995.

Tiger Lily was born 18 months later.

However, she was just 16-months-old when her father was found dead in a hotel room, and was four when her mother, Paula Yates, lost her life to an overdose.

Then, on the cusp of her 18th birthday, she became tangled-up in a bitter family feud between her adoptive father, Bob Geldof, and her real father’s family in Australia.

She then suffered more loss when her half-sister, Peached Geldof, died of a sudden overdose in April 2014.

Now, however, she'll enjoy a relative reversal of fortunes after being made financially secure thanks to her father's legacy - something her fellow Hutchence relatives have previously struggled to get for themselves.

Discussing the late star's estate - which financial managers have long said was squandered - a family insider said: “It’s all very shadowy, underground people who control his estate. It’s impossible to pin them down.

“We tried to do it with legal action but we don’t even have phone numbers, let alone addresses.

“There should be millions in the pot now and Michael would have never signed away the rights to his songs, but we keep getting fobbed off.”
