Prior to his death, he finalized his will, and The Blast managed to obtain copies of the document. He explicitly cut out daughter Katherine Cassidy as a beneficiary.
The relationship between David and his family had been strained due to his battle with alcoholism, but in spite of their past conflicts, his family rushed to his side after hearing of his hospitalization.
They grew closer as Katie pursued a career in Hollywood, with David serving as more of a friend than a father, and in 2009, he opened up about their unique relationship to People magazine, saying, "Because I didn't raise her, I didn't have to parent her". She has a completely different life. The 67-year-old singer was estranged from Katie Cassidy for several years, though they had reconciled before his death, and so his legal arrangements reflected the distance between them, leaving his $150,000 assets to son Beau.
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".
The "Arrow" actress was raised by ex-model Sherry Williams and Williams' husband. He said he and his daughter weren't in contact, but he said he was proud of her (she's an actress).
Eric Conn, lawyer who vanished, pleads not guilty to escape
Cronan of the Justice Department's Criminal Division, Special Agent in Charge Amy S. Conn cut off his ankle monitor and escaped on June 2.
'I wasn't her father. According to him, he's never really had a relationship with her, so it only makes sense for him to leave his assets to son Beau.
The 31-year-old recently broke her silence about her family's loss to thank fans for their outpouring of support, revealing his last words were, "So much wasted time" - a comment which inspired Katie to "share my gratitude with those I love as to never waste another minute..."
The will also stated that anything that was "music memorabilia" was to be left with his three half-siblings. Since they divorced in 2016, his cousin took over the role.
Katie Cassidy was left out of David Cassidy's last will and testament, which was originally written in 2004. Katie and Cassidy were last pictured together at a red carpet event in 2007.
