There has been no word yet on if he has a will or trust set up to distribute his estate, but it almost certainly will be a large one. In addition to being a singer, Meat Loaf was also a songwriter, actor, and record producer with a reported net worth of around 50 million USD. His estate will include all of his monetary assets, real property, and personal property. If he does not have a will or trust set up to distribute his estate, it will likely pass through the probate courts and be distributed through intestacy statutes of the jurisdiction(s) he and or his property resides in. Typically, his estate will be distributed to his wife and children in intestacy but depending on the jurisdiction stepchildren may not be treated equally as marital children.
