Mickey Rooney's death stirs dissension Published: April 9, 2014

For decades in Hollywood, Mickey Rooney led a charmed life, reports the Los Angeles Times.

But on Tuesday, two days after his death at 93, it became clear how far his fortunes had fallen in recent years.

Rooney's trust didn't have a dime. He owed back taxes to the IRS and the state Franchise Tax Board. He was estranged from most of his nine children and separated from his wife. He had disinherited everyone except one stepson, according to a will filed along with court papers that showed assets of just $18,000.
