Carrie Fisher's Daughter Billie Lourd Will Inherit Nearly $7 Mil

Lourd was on the promotional trail as a petition for probate was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court Wednesday, confirming that the third-generation Hollywood star - who lost her mother and grandmother Debbie Reynolds on back-to-back days a year ago - was in line to inherit the Star Wars star's fortune.

The petitioner, Dennis King, filed the documents Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court along with a copy of the actress' will, which asks that the residue of the estate be made part of the Carrie Fisher Living Trust.

Apart from those, Lourd is also set to inherit the rights to the late screen legend's image and likeness, as well as her intellectual property rights, including proceeds from her books, specials, trademarks and copyrights.

These include several bank accounts, a auto, full ownership of several Limited Liability Companies (LLC) and a life insurance policy.

A handful of Fisher's memorabilia will be auctioned in September and her shared property with the late Debbie Reynolds is on the market for $18 million.

The tabloid points out that while that amount is no small amount of money, Fisher's final film in the "Star Wars" franchise, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", grossed almost $2 billion at the box office.

Earlier this month, Billie Lourd opened up about how she's coping with the loss of her mother and grandmother.

Fisher tragically died one day after her mum, who was 84.

"If life's not amusing, then it's just true - and that would be unacceptable".

She added: "Now is the first time in my life when I get to own my life and stand on my own. Even when [Fisher] died, that was what got me through that whole thing", she said during a candid interview with her American Horror Story co-star Sarah Paulson.
