David Cassidy's will leaves out daughter Katie

Katie and David have had a strained relationship over the years, with David previously admitting that she was exclusively raised by her mum, former model Sherry Williams.

The two had been estranged, but reconciled before his death from organ failure on November 21 at the age of 67. "She has a completely different life".

In the will, it's been written that David Cassidy has left his entire $150k assets (£112k) to his son Beau.

According to The Blast, the will documents were first filed in 2004.

In the documents, David wrote: 'It is my specific intent not to provide any benefits hereunder to Katherine Evelyn Cassidy'.

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".

David's half siblings were left "music memorabilia", while Katie was explicitly excluded.

In February, David told People that despite he was Katie's biological father, he never shared a relationship with his eldest child and is no longer in contact with her.

Katie Cassidy, 31, is David's daughter from a relationship with model Sherry Williams.

"I'm proud of her". However, all the members of the family, including Beau, brothers Patrick and Shaun, and ex-wife Sue Shifrin, reunited in support of the late actor following his hospitalization.

While the official cause of death has been blacked out, Cassidy's family says he died from complications with liver failure. "She's very talented. It's hard for me to even accept how old she is now, like 30", he said.

Katie has appeared in TV series such as Arrow, Gossip Girl and Supernatural.

He went on to call son Beau "one of the best people you'll ever meet" and said he was a big help in the early stages of his dementia diagnosis.

Days after his dad's death, Katie penned a tweet reminding her fans to show their gratitude to those close to their hearts while they still have time.
