Will Reveals Tony Curtis Disinherited His Children
Late actor Tony Curtis's will has been revealed and in it he disinherits his five children, including actress Jamie Lee Curtis. INSIDE EDITION has more.
It's the last will and testament of Hollywood legend Tony Curtis, and it reveals that in his final days he disinherited daughter, Jamie Lee Curtis and his other four children.
INSIDE EDITION has obtained the will, written five months before his death from cardiac arrest last year at age 85. His children are listed by name, including jamie Lee. Then there's this statement: "I acknowledge the existence of my children...and have intentionally and with full knowledge chosen not to provide for them."
Instead, Curtis leaves his estate to his widow, Jill.
A source provided INSIDE EDITION with an e-mail, apparently written to one of Curtis' kids that reads: "(I) just had to write to tell you how very sorry I am about the news of the will. I'm in shock! Your father loved you all so much, and I will never believe that he turned his back on you."
Curtis, who starred in Spartacus and Some Like it Hot, was eulogized by his actress daughter Jamie Lee at his funeral. She comforted family members at his burial.
Now she and her siblings find themselves cut out of their father's will.
One of Curtis's daughters contested the will in court, but was denied. Meanwhile, Curtis's widow Jill released a statement saying, "Tony's last will and testament and his passing wishes are private family matters."
