Dimebag Estate To Be Shared By Family

Former PANTERA guitarist 'DIMEBAG' DARRELL ABBOTT's estate will be shared between his drummer brother VINNIE PAUL and his songwriter father JERRY ABBOTT.

The rocker was killed when a deranged gunman stormed onstage during a performance by Dimebag's band DAMAGEPLAN in Columbus, Ohio in December (04).

He is reported to have left assets of around $700,000 (GBP368,000), including a $450,000 (GBP236,800) home in his native Dallas, Texas.

Dimebag didn't leave a will, but family lawyer STEVE McCLURE insists the estate will be distributed without complaint.

He says, "(Abbott) reiterated to just about everybody that he didn't have a will because he didn't want to give anyone a reason. These are class folks and you're not going to see them at the courthouse fighting over nickels and dimes."

His longterm girlfriend RITA SUE HANEY has not been listed as a beneficiary, but the rocker's business manager insists, "Rita's going to be provided for...Darrell knew her since the third grade."
