Sir Jimmy Savile's estate is frozen

6/17/2014

Late British entertainer Sir Jimmy Savile's estate has been frozen as cops investigate sex abuse allegations against him. The estate's executors at NatWest bank have decided to put the dead DJ's estimated $6.9 million (£4.3 million) fortune on hold in response to mounting reports that Savile, who passed away last year (11), molested more than 200 children over a period of 40 years. A NatWest spokesperson says, "Given the claims raised, distribution of the estate has been put on hold." Savile left his savings and other valuables to 26 separate beneficiaries, according to the Financial Times. His assets include his trademark gold rings and a photo of him with The Beatles, which he bequeathed to a niece.
