Michael Hutchences Daughter Turning 21 Will Inherit Millions
The daughter of the late Michael Hutchence and Paula Yates, Tiger Lily is about to inherit millions of dollars when she turns 21 this week.
The Sun on Sunday has reported that she is expected to receive a large slice of royalties that have accrued since Michael died almost 20 years ago.
The Sun also revealed that Tiger Lily has posed nude for British photographer Kate Bellm.

Tiger Lily was only 16 months old when Michael was found dead in a Sydney hotel room in 1997.
Tragically, mum Paula, 41, then died from a heroin overdose in 2000, leaving then four-year-old Tiger Lily — full name Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily — an orphan.
Amazingly, she was then adopted by her mum’s ex-husband Bob Geldof, 65, and raised in England with his daughters from the failed marriage to Paula - Fifi Trixibelle, Peaches and Pixie.
To add to the tragedy, Peaches sadly passed away in 2014 aged just 25 from a heroin overdose.
As well as modelling Tiger Lily has also worked as a fashion photographer under the name Tiger Lily Hutchence Geldof.
Michael’s relatives say Tiger Lily will inherit millions when she turns 21 on July 22 through the trust fund set up by him before he died.
They say they have been frustrated in their own efforts trying to get access to his estate.
His financial managers claim he died penniless and bankrupt, but millions have been earned from INXS hits since Michael’s death, which Tiger Lily will receive a chunk of.
A family source said: “It’s all very shadowy, underground people who control his estate. It’s impossible to pin them down. We tried to do it with legal action but we don’t even have phone numbers, let alone addresses."
“There should be millions in the pot now and Michael would have never signed away the rights to his songs, but we keep getting fobbed off.”
