The will lists the names of all five Curtis children, then contains the statement: “I acknowledge the existence of my children… and have intentionally and with full knowledge chosen not to provide for them.”
Curtis, who died of cardiac arrest at age 85, instead left his estate to his fifth wife, Jill, who he married in 1998. He was previously married to, among others, actress Janet Leigh.
According to “Inside Edition,” one of Curtis’ daughters unsuccessfully contested the will in court.
His widow, Jill, released a statement saying, “Tony’s last will and testament and his passing wishes are private family matters.”
