Reports have emerged that legendary 'Cars' singer Ric Ocasek cut his estranged wife  Paulina Porizkova  out of his will prior to his recent death. As Fox News reports:

“I have made no provision for my wife Paulina Porizkova (“Paulina”) as we are in the process of divorcing,” Ocasek wrote in his will, according to documents obtained by 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.”

Per the documents, Ocasek's assets include $5 million in copyrights but only $15,000 in cash and $100,000 in "tangible personal property."

The singer was found dead in his New York City apartment in mid-September by Porizkova. The influential artist died from hypertensive and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, according to the NYC medical examiner.


The couple met in 1984 and then wed in 1989 before splitting in 2017. The couple had two sons.
