A judge granted a petition brought by the father of the late Maroon 5 manager Jordan Feldstein asking that steps be taken to ensure the mortgage will be paid on his offspring’s home and that Feldstein’s children continue receiving child support.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Daniel Juarez issued his ruling Friday in the petition filed by Richard Feldstein, which asked that assets owned by his son be transferred to the decedent’s trust so that the bills can be paid.
Feldstein died Dec. 22 of a heart attack at age 40. His father is the trustee of the Jordan Feldstein living trust. His court papers stated that although there were enough assets in the trust to pay the January mortgage payment, there may not be enough money to do so in the coming months.
Richard Feldstein has listed the property for sale, the petition stated.
“Further, it is imperative that the trustee continue to make monthly payments for court-ordered child support for (Feldstein’s) minor children,” the petition stated.
Feldstein, the brother of actor Jonah Hill, was divorced and had two sons, currently ages 10 and 8. Their mother, Dana Lauren Feldstein, supported Richard Feldstein’s petition, according to the trustee’s court papers.
Feldstein held brokerage accounts with Merrill Lynch worth millions of dollars, according to the petition, which also states that Richard Feldstein is responsible for paying the decedent’s federal and state income taxes.
A copy of a will Feldstein executed in April 2013 shows he intended that all his assets be transferred to the trustee of the Jordan Feldstein trust.
