David and Katie (who now stars on the TV series "Arrow") had a complicated relationship - she was raised by her mother, former model Sherry Williams - and David told PEOPLE in 2009, "Because I didn't raise her, I didn't have to parent her".

"It is my specific intent not to provide any benefits hereunder to Katherine Evelyn Cassidy and/or any descendant of Katherine Evelyn Cassidy", David Cassidy stated in the will, which was reportedly written in 2004 before the actress had established her own successful career.

Cassidy died of liver and kidney failure, but suffered from dementia in the years leading up to his death.

David Cassidy leaves daughter Katie out of will. David Cassidy snubbed his daughter Katie in his will, leaving his assets to son Beau. The money was tagged for Beau and any "music memorabilia" was left to David's three half-brothers, the Blast said.

"I wasn't her father".

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. In 2009, David told People Magazine that "Because I didn't raise [Katie], I didn't have to parent her".

Beau Devin Cassidy, 26, a singer-actor, is the son of David Cassidy and third wife Sue Shifrin. "She has a completely different life", he said.

Beau, however, remained close to his father throughout the final years of his life, during which Cassidy battled drug and alcohol addiction and financial problems, declaring bankruptcy in 2015.

She once recorded her dad's classic song in 2002 when she was 16, but behind the scenes, the bond between father and daughter was a shaky one. "She's very talented. It's hard for me to even accept how old she is now, like 30", he said.

Katie, who was raised mainly by her mother and stepfather, Richard Benedon, stars as Laurel Lance in the hit TV show "Arrow", and also starred in the 2006 remake of "When A Stranger Calls". It is not clear how Katie feels about her removal from the will, though she appeared to be extremely affected by her father's death.
