Michael Crichton's Will -- Everyone Is Rich!!

1/28/2009 6:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael CrichtonWe just obtained a copy of Michael Crichton's will and ... let's put it this way ... you wish you were a relative.

The author of "Jurassic Park" and "ER" exec producer had a prenup with his wife, according to the doc.

As for everything else Crichton had when he died last November, it remains in the John Michael Crichton Living Trust, which he created before he died.

Now, the beneficiaries of that trust ... we won't mention their names, but they're his brother, sister-in-law, sister, brother-in-law, niece, niece, friend, friend, friend, niece, nephew-in-law, grand-nephew, grand-nephew, friend, friend, friend, friend, friend, friend and John's foundation.

Crichton was a cash register during his lifetime, reportedly at one point earning $100 million a year.

so he had no kids at that age? or he just didnt leave them anything? r maybe u guys at TMZ dont have the entire list of beneficiaries.even with him having a prenup,he cud have left his wife a little something,damn,just make sure that she do get the majority of it, if thats how he feel,so i cud get why he had that prenup done.but leaving her nothing is quite mean and harsh.well maybe he knew she cheated on him,if so he shud leave her a dollar,which wud obviously make her and every1 know that she did something foul in the relationship.i shud have been 1 of his frens,damn.

There are no such things as Grand Nephews...only Grand children. When your niece or nephew has a child, that child becomes your GREAT niece or nephew.
