David Cassidy purposely left his daughter, Katie Cassidy, out of his will.

A copy of Cassidy's final will, obtained by The Beast, shows the actor left $150,000 to Beau Cassidy, 26, and specifically excluded his daughter 31-year-old Katie. The documents also revealed that Cassidy's three half-siblings - Ryan, 51, Patrick, 55, and Shaun, 59 - were given his music memorabilia.

The will was originally filed in 2004 and named his then-wife, Susan, as the personal representative under the will.

Katie Cassidy has been successful in showbiz, known for her roles in TV's "Arrow,"and "Supernatural", and in such movies as "Monte Carlo", alongside Selena Gomez".


David Cassidy, who became a teen heartthrob playing Keith on the 1970-1974 ABC musical sitcom about band "The Partridge Family", died of liver and kidney failure on November 21 following years of substance abuse and, he revealed earlier this year, dementia.

"Because I didn't raise her, I didn't have to parent her", Cassidy told People in a 2009 interview. "She has a completely different life".

The 30-year-old "Arrow" star had a complicated relationship with her famous dad, having been raised by her mother and stepfather, model Sherry Williams and Richard Benedon. Following her father's death, Katie did make a touching tribute to him on Twitter.

"Words cant express the solace our family's received from all the love & support during this trying time", the actress tweeted on Saturday. But it may have been that the two didn't spend much quality time together.
