Here's Who Inherited Luke Perry's Money After He Died

The world was shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of actor Luke Perry, who suffered a massive stroke in March 2019 and died at the age of 52 (via Page Six). Perry was most well known for his role on "Beverly Hills, 90210" and was working on the hit drama "Riverdale" at the time of his death.

Reports state that the late actor's fortune was given entirely to his two children, to be split evenly; his son Jack was 22 at the time of his father's death, while daughter Sophie was 19. Along with Perry's savings, his estate included their San Fernando Valley home, estimated to be $2 million in value, though the house was not initially put up for sale. Jack and Sophie Perry are also entitled to their father's royalties from "90210," "Riverdale," and his other acting exploits. Luke Perry's son Jack has an interesting source of income of his own.

Luke Perry's son is a professional wrestler

While Luke Perry was an entertainer on the screen, his son Jack is an entertainer in the ring. According to Best Life, Jack Perry is better known to some as "Jungle Boy," the name he has adopted for his professional wrestling career. After taking to the independent wrestling scene as a high-schooler, Perry was signed to up-and-coming wrestling promotion All Elite Wrestling in 2019, where he leans into his "Jungle Boy" character, wearing leopard print bottoms and letting his considerable curls down.

Though he shares half of his father's fortune, Jack Perry has stated that he doesn't want to live off of his father's success and make his own way in life jumping off the top rope. Perry has talked about his gratitude toward his inspiring father, who always supported his son in his unusual career choice. Luke Perry was always supportive of his children, and it shows not only with the contents of his will, but his dedication to his son's wrestling career, which has already been successful.
