David Cassidy left most of his estate to son, left out daughter

Despite having been estranged from her father for years Katie mourned his death on Twitter last month

Despite having been estranged from her father for years Katie mourned his death on Twitter last month

It turns out David Cassidy, The Partridge Family icon who died last month, wasn't very close to his actor daughter, Katie Cassidy-because he left her nothing in his will.

His will, excerpted Wednesday at TheBlast.com, states, "It is my specific intent not to provide any benefits hereunder to Katherine Evelyn Cassidy and/or any descendant of Katherine Evelyn Cassidy".

David had approximately $150,000 in various assets, which was left to Beau, whom he shared with now ex-wife Susan.

The majority of it has been inherited by son Beau, a 26-year-old singer-songwriter. The documents also revealed that Cassidy's three half-siblings - Ryan, 51, Patrick, 55, and Shaun, 59 - were given his music memorabilia.

David Cassidy, who became a teen heartthrob playing Keith on the 1970-1974 ABC musical sitcom about band "The Partridge Family", died of liver and kidney failure on November 21 following years of substance abuse and, he revealed earlier this year, dementia.

He had spoken about his troubled relationship with Katie in an interview with People magazine.

It comes just weeks after Katie posted a touching message on social media following her father's death saying "Words cant express the solace our family's received from all the love & support during this trying time".

"I'm proud of her. She has a completely different life", he explained. Growing up, Katie spent most of her time with her mother, former model Sherry Williams.

"I'm proud of her". "She's very talented. It's hard for me to even accept how old she is now, like 30", he said.

Katie has appeared in TV series such as Arrow, Gossip Girl and Supernatural.

He went on to call son Beau "one of the best people you'll ever meet" and said he was a big help in the early stages of his dementia diagnosis.
