Late Cars frontman Ric Ocasek made a point to remove his estranged wife, model Paulina Porizkova, from his will less than a month before his death.
The couple, which split in 2017, had been in the midst of divorce proceedings at the time of the singer's passing on 15 September, and Ocasek decided to write the beauty out of his last will as a result of their broken union.
"I have made no provision for my wife Paulina Porizkova... as we are in the process of divorcing," he stated in documents signed on 28 August, according to the New York Post's Page Six.
"Even if I should die before our divorce is final... Paulina is not entitled to any elective share... because she has abandoned me."
Ironically, Porizkova was actually the one who found Ocasek unconscious at the New York City home they once shared after stopping by to check in on him following a recent surgical procedure.
The 75-year-old was subsequently pronounced dead, with coroners ruling he died naturally from heart disease.
Ocasek appointed his friend and business manager Mario Testani as the executor of his estate, and a court filing reveals the musician's fortune included $5 million (£3.9 million) in "copyrights" but just $15,000 (£11,700) in cash, and $100,000 (£78,000) in "tangible personal property".
He and Porizkova, his third wife, wed in 1989. They had two sons together.
Ocasek also had four other kids from his two previous marriages.
