Lou Reed Leaves Estate To Wife, Sister

NEW YORK (AP) _Rocker Lou Reed's life was decidedly unconventional, but he wanted his estate used for a very traditional purpose: to benefit his wife and other relatives.

Reed's will was filed in a New York City court. The will leaves his Manhattan penthouse, his home in East Hampton, N.Y., and the bulk of his estate to his wife, musician Laurie Anderson. The longtime couple married in 2008.

Reed's sister inherits about a quarter of his estate and a $500,000 bequest aimed at caring for their mother.

His business manager and accountant are assigned to handle licensing and copyrights for his music. Reed is a Syracuse University alumnus, graduating in 1964.  He died October 27 at age 71.
