Ex-Warrant Singer Jani Lane

Died Without a Will

12/9/2011 4:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Former Warrant singer Jani Lane died without divvying up his financial empire -- which could be a big problem .... considering he was worth about $600,000 at the time of his death.

According to court docs filed in connection with Jani's estate, the singer left behind no will when he died of alcohol poisoning in August -- and now, his oldest daughter has asked the court to approve an estate administrator to start figuring things out.

According to the docs, the 47-year-old's estate is valued at $600,000 -- though it's unclear exactly what it's made up of.

As for who's in contention for the goods -- Jani is survived by his wife and his two daughters ... but the mom of his second daughter could also make out with a share.

His first wife only married him for his fame.. Remember Cherry Pie girl???? Bobbie Brown! She went out with a Nelson guy and who know who else until she landed Jani... But who cares.... He had 2 daughters and it should go to them. If he was married then it should be split with the 3 of them. A lot of people don't think about wills. I hope they do the right thing. It's not like it was millions!!!!

His daughters should get everything His last wife has been nothing but rotten to his family. Didn't even invite them to his service. She was allegedly cheating on him with her ex. Give it to his daughters. All the wives did was use him and they already took what they wanted from him when he was alive.

600k is nothing in 2011 and likely that's a inflated number by 40%.Sounds like a house and a car. Attorneys fees will likely suck up half of whats left of that value ,so he was basically worth nothing.

Well, it's a nickel apiece for bottles and cans, so it may take awhile to total up.

Once Oblamo and the feds get their hands on that 600 thou it'll be barely enough for Sheen's crack habit for a week. You die, Uncle SambObama takes the biggest cut. I'm surprised they're not taking all of it, because YOU KNOW they'd like to.

People on here knockin' on Jani. He was all over mtv when it actually meant something. Sold millions of records. He wrote a few hits. What has any kardashian done? A sex tape? If you think kim is pretty and that was a good porno. You're an idiot.

This is a wake up call for 70's teen idol Leif Garrett, he will be next if he doesn't get clean. Not to mention he has the curse of the Dr Drew Rehab show going for him, we have already lost Conway and Mike Starr who appeared on that show

So sad... after all he contributed to the music industry and all of his talent, he died alone in a motel room with 600k to his name. I truly feel for his daughters who have to live their lives without a father who never realized what a great man he was!
