Gloria Vanderbilt Leaves Fortune to Son Anderson Cooper

July 05, 2019Jul 05, 2019

Gloria Vanderbilt recently passed away. Now, her entire fortune has been left to her son, Anderson Cooper.

"The document, filed Monday in Manhattan surrogate court, says the recently deceased socialite fashion icon’s eldest son Leopold 'Stan' Stokowski will get her Midtown pad in a co-op at 30 Beekman Place, but 'all the rest' of her property goes to the CNN host," reported Fox.

Vanderbilt is the great-great-great-granddaughter of railroad tycoon Cornelius Vanderbilt. She died on June 17, 2019, after being diagnosed with advanced stomach cancer. She was 95 years old.

Cooper has spoken out concerning his mother's fortune in the past. He said he didn't expect to get anything.

“My mom’s made clear to me that there’s no trust fund. There’s none of that,” Cooper told Stern. "I don’t believe in inheriting money … I think it’s an initiative sucker. I think it’s a curse. Who’s inherited a lot of money that has gone on to do things in their life? From the time I was growing up, if I felt like there was some pot of gold waiting for me, I don’t know if I would have been so motivated.”

However, it looks like he will be getting the inheritance. In what is evidently a surprise to Cooper, Gloria's estranged middle son, Chris Stokowski, is instead allotted nothing.
