    I remember the infamous UK Big Breakfast TV show live interview when Paula virtually climbed into Michael Hutchens’ pants while “interviewing” him. He was a sexy beast for sure but she did have a husband and 3 very young kids at home. Geldof was/is a greasy slob but he did love her and like any cuckold the public breakup must have been humiliating. It certainly added to his sainthood credentials as the mastermind behind Liveaid.

    Given Tiger Lily’s DNA and dysfunctional family history I’m not optimistic about her prospects. Changing her name and getting a job would be a good start but I doubt that will happen. There’s a lot of millennial entitlement there apart from anything else. I wish her the very best but there’s a huge amount of baggage to overcome.

Some celebrities are very tight with their money and yet lax with their kids' upbringing so that the kids end up with few ways of supporting themselves and it all gets very miserable. Even if you buy them a place to live, how they are going to pay for anything?
    Peaches was probably cut off BECAUSE of her drug use. I don't particularly like Bob and think he's a shady character when you scrub the grease from his halo, but if his daughter was an addict who refused help then what else could he do? Plus he wouldn't be the first celebrity parent who expected their kids to make their own way in the world instead of becoming a spoiled trust fund brat.

    As for Paula, she ended up doing the Hello spreads etc because her own drug use made her too unreliable for television work. Nobody knew whether she was going to turn up off her tits, or even turn up at all.

    Bob (legally) adopted Tiger Lily.


    He said he was determined that Tiger Lily would remember her parents, explaining: 'I have the records, photos, videos and all that stuff for her.'
    A close bond: Her death occurred on Peaches' sister and her daughter, Pixie's 10th birthday. Tiger Lily's late father had been found dead in a Sydney hotel room three years earlier, so Paula's ex-husband Bob took her in and raised her as his own

    Damn, I had never watched that interview before and . Are we sure they didn't hook up prior to it? It looked like they already "knew" each other, unless that was her usual interview style.

    As an kinda ex-punk I have to ask: what's wrong with living in a Squat? Living in luxury did neither her (birth-, biological-)parents nor her sister any good. Sir Bob obviously not the best of father either. So - she is doing something different, which could be good for her.

    Not sure that it’s Bob that people should be going after - he took in his (ex-)wife’s child with another man & gave her a home with her step-sisters.

    Michael Hutchence’s only child could miss out on inheriting INXS rocker’s fortune after assets vanish

    NOVEMBER 18, 2017 1:04PM
    THERE are fears the daughter of Michael Hutchence will never see any of her father’s fortune after the late rocker’s finances were dragged into the Paradise Papers scandal.Tiger Lily, who the former INXS frontman had with Paula Yates, could miss out on a share of $227 million — because nobody seems to know where it is, according to The Sun.
    The Aussie singer has remained a money-making machine in the 20 years since his suicide at 37, through royalties from his band’s 55 million worldwide record sales.
    But the man in charge of Michael’s accounts, Colin Diamond, claimed he died penniless, his wealth eaten up by partying, gifts and huge legal bills.

    Michael Hutchence’s fortune is ‘missing’, potentially leaving his only child to inherit nothing. Picture: Supplied Source: SuppliedTiger Lily Hutchence is the only daughter of the late INXS rocker. Picture: House of Khadi. Source: SuppliedHowever, the Paradise Papers leak this month suggested the tax lawyer, who is Tiger Lily’s godfather, was the “ultimate beneficial owner” of the music and image rights — and behind two of the many offshore companies in which the rocker’s assets are tied up.
    The documents claim he set up a company called Helipad Plain on Mauritius in 2015 for the “commercial exploitation of the sound recordings, images, films and related materials embodying the performance of Michael Hutchence”.
    Another of his firms is Virgin Islands-based Chardonnay Investments, which in 2010 sued the remaining members of INXS for alleged underpayment of royalties earned since Michael’s death in 1997. The matter was settled out of court.
    Mr Diamond was unavailable for comment last night.
    The Paradise Papers have infuriated Michael’s family. Indeed, the reason assets are often stashed offshore is not just to legally dodge tax, but also to keep transactions secret.
    Michael’s brother Rhett and sister Tina have been fighting for years for what they believe should go to Tiger Lily, 21, and themselves.
    Hutchence with his baby daughter. Picture: Supplied/Seven. Source: SuppliedRhett told The Sun: “He opens an offshore account which benefits from Michael’s private thoughts, and personal belongings and music — Michael would be unnerved.”
    The accountant features in new INXS documentary The Last Rockstar, in which he claims Michael blew “$1.10 on every dollar he made” by lavishing treats on his friends.
    As a result no money was handed over to any of the beneficiaries. Rhett claims the only item of Michael’s returned to them by Mr Diamond was the belt that took his life.

    Michael is credited as a writer of many INXS songs and three years ago the band’s compilation albums were at No1 and No2 in the Australian charts. Their biggest album, Kick, is re-released this month.
    So even if he died penniless, the family assumed he would still earn millions in royalties.

Picture: From the book <i>Michael In Pictures</i> Source: SuppliedBut Rhett and Tina, who along with parents Patricia and Kelland were each due ten per cent of Michael’s fortune, were told by the tax lawyer that royalties and all future earnings from INXS were not part of his estate.
    Tina said the family was most worried about whether Tiger Lily would ever see any of what they feel is the promised inheritance.
    She told us: “The idea was to take care of the child. Over the years, royalties add up fast. That’s why Michael could buy a million-dollar property over here in cash, another one over there in a million cash.”
    But the properties Tina believed her late brother owned in London, France, Hong Kong, Indonesia and Australia were in fact owned by various companies.
    Australian investigators found companies called Nexcess, Nextcircle and Leaguework controlled some of his properties in 2005. It is unclear who is behind these companies, or whether they are still active.
    Formerly Tiger Lily Hutchence, she now goes by Tiger Hutchence Geldof. Picture: Instagram Source: SuppliedTiger Lily Hutchence was raised by Bob Geldof. Source: SuppliedThis complex web has proved frustrating for Tina, who added: “People who set up these things are not people who live in one place, they move around. So it’s not like we can serve papers. No one has a number.”
    Rhett and Tina faced a vicious backlash for taking on the money men, facing accusations they were only after their brother’s money.
    Tina, 67, still scarred by the abuse, said: “My mother didn’t need the money, my stepfather was a millionaire. It wasn’t about the money, it was all about justice.”

Source: SuppliedAn attempted legal challenge to Mr Diamond by Patricia in 1999 ended up being settled out of court. The sum barely covered their fees. Tina believes the bitter wrangle caused Patricia so much stress it hastened her death from dementia in 2010. Stepdad Ross died the previous year.
    She added: “The attorneys said we could keep going but I didn’t like my parents spending this much money. I’d seen them go down health-wise, it was shocking, I encouraged them to get out of it.”
    Patricia, Kelland and Paula Yates, three of the will’s beneficiaries, have died since it was made.
    TV presenter Paula died, aged 41, from a heroin overdose in 2000, leaving Tiger Lily an orphan.
    After Michael and Paula both died, Tiger Lily was left an orphan and brought up by Bob Geldof. Picture: Supplied Source: SuppliedPaula’s former husband Bob Geldof became her legal guardian and keeps her out of the limelight. Tiger Lily — now known as Tiger Hutchence Geldof — did not wish to comment last night.
    The coroner’s report into her dad’s death said he had consumed booze, cocaine and Prozac prior to hanging at Sydney’s Ritz-Carlton Hotel.
    Michael, whose past lovers included Kylie Minogue and supermodel Helena Christensen, was known as being experimental in the bedroom. There were rumours he died during a solo sex game.
    Tiger has shunned the spotlight, and is rarely seen in public. Picture: SNAPPER MEDIA Source: SuppliedHowever, Rhett has questioned whether all the facts are out.
    Posting on social media earlier this year, he wrote: “Only three things could have happened that day. It could have been suicide, Michael may have passed due to lack of oxygen, due to sexual misadventure, or adventure, or Michael was killed.” One former girlfriend, speaking anonymously to The Sun, shared Rhett’s fears, saying: “He was so professionally tied. That’s the point.
    “Could it have been done by professionals?”

Picture: Supplied Source: SuppliedThe singer did not leave a suicide note and actress Kym Wilson, who had been drinking with him hours earlier, has said she “certainly did not believe he was suicidal”.
    According to Mr Diamond, Michael was planning for the future.
    In the new documentary, the tax lawyer says: “He was actively having fertility treatment with Paula. They were looking at having another child. We had discussions about them getting married in Tahiti.”
    There is no chance of challenging the coroner’s suicide verdict because Michael was cremated four days after he was found.
    The hastiness of the cremation angered Tina, who claimed her brother wanted to be buried.
    She said: “Why would he say in his will he wanted to be cremated?

    Others believe Michael was in a bad place emotionally in the final weeks of his turbulent life.
    According to producer pal Danny Saber, the singer was devastated by Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher’s comments at the 1996 Brits. Having been handed the Best British Video gong by Michael, Noel quipped:
    “Has-beens shouldn’t be presenting awards to gonna-bes.”
    But causing him even greater anguish was the state of heroin addict Paula. Tina recalled: “Twice he had to fly back to London. She was saying she was going to take her own life.”
    Despite her tragic start in life, well-balanced Tiger Lily has not followed the path of her parents.
    Her step-grandmother Susie said of her: “She’s pretty amazing. Tiger is taken to the heart by the public, she deserves it, but she’s not one for the public eye.
    “She’s a lovely, young woman and the world is her oyster.”

    The lawyer has probably been living off that money all these years.

    So have other band members been receiving their share of INXS royalties? And if so, where is Michael's share going?

    Agree. Surely the INXS royalties are still flowing? Maybe not a huge amount but enough to live on. Even if Michael died without a Will then Lily would be a beneficiary, although she was a minor when he died so I suspect the circling vultures, er “guardians” have pounced. There are some big holes in this story. Poor girl, a terrible start in life. She’s going to need a lot of resilience (and smarts) to deal with it.

    I was just watching this performance by INXS at Wembley in 1991. The guy had amazing stage presence and a very strong voice. Look at the crowd bouncing to the beat. WOW.

    I can totally see why Paula dumped scuzzy Irish Bob for sexbomb Aussie Michael. He’s a better singer too.
