Adjust Comment Print

David Cassidy, a musician, and star of the popular 70s sitcom, Partridge Family, has deliberately left his daughter, actress Katie Cassidy, out of his will. She later revealed that his heartbreaking final words were: 'So much wasted time'.

Cassidy has said on multiple occasions that he "didn't raise" Katie. Cassidy tried to fix his relationship with his daughter for several years, but he confirmed earlier this year that they were no longer communicating.

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".

David and Katie Cassidy had a complicated relationship.

Katie, who was primarily raised by her mother, model Sherry Williams, is also a successful actress who's starred in a number of television shows and films.

In February, David told People that despite he was Katie's biological father, he never shared a relationship with his eldest child and is no longer in contact with her.

"I'm so grateful that I was able to hold and love the best friend I'll ever have in his last moments", he said.

His music memorabilia was left to his three-half brothers: Shaun, Patrick and Ryan Cassidy. The Blast revealed that Cassidy's will was created in 2004 by his personal representative and then-wife, Susan Cassidy. Since they divorced in 2016, his cousin took over the role.

"I was in denial, but a part of me always knew this was coming", said Cassidy, who watched his grandfather battle the disease and witnessed his mother "disappear" into dementia until she died at age 89.

As of late, Katie has not yet commented regarding her dad's decision to leave her out of his will.

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.
