David Cassidy Cuts Daughter Katie Out of His Will

Late pop singer David Cassidy excluded his daughter, actress Katie Cassidy, from his will, according to documents reported by The Blast.

The website added that Cassidy had about $150,000 in assets at the time of his death, all of which will go to Beau.

Following her dad's death, devastated Katie shared her father's last words, writing on Twitter: "Words cant express the solace our family's received from all the love & support during this trying time".

"No one made me laugh like David", his brother Patrick told People.

Katie and David have had a strained relationship over the years, with David previously admitting that she was exclusively raised by her mum, former model Sherry Williams.

Still, when news of David's deteriorating health broke, Katie rushed to be at her father's bedside - leaving a fan convention for her TV show "Arrow" early in order to be with him.

In Cassidy's last will and testament, obtained by United States site The Blast, the Partridge Family star outlined his "specific intent" to exclude his 31-year-old daughter, Katie Cassidy, from any benefits.

"All references in this trust to my "child or children" are to Beau Devin Cassidy and such references shall not include Katherine Evelyn Cassidy no any descendent of Katherine Evelyn Cassidy", the will reads.

"It is my specific intent not to provide any benefits hereunder to Katherine Evelyn Cassidy, and/or any descendent of Katherine Evelyn Cassidy", he wrote. "She has a completely different life", he said.

Cassidy's relationship with Katie, his only daughter, was strained in recent years.

Though they were never close, Cassidy said he was "proud" of the career has daughter had carved out for herself in Hollywood. "She's very talented. It's hard for me to even accept how old she is now, like 30". His three half-siblings, however, will receive anything that classifies as "music memorabilia". Originally it named his then-wife Susan as personal representative, but the role fell to his cousin following their 2016 divorce.
