The petition listed multiple retirement accounts holding around $100k. She said the money is “subject to split with former spouse pursuant” to their divorce judgment.

Hill listed the value of her 2020 memoir She Will Rise as “unknown.” She said there was a contract with Blumhouse productions for the book and television/movie rights to her story.

The book was published and is on the market for sale, but at “the current rate of sale, it does not appear Ms. Hill will receive any additional income from book sales.”

She said there was an option payment of $150k due in April 2022 in order for Blumhouse to continue to retain the movie/television rights to her story but the option was not exercised.
