David Cassidy cut his daughter, actress Katie Cassidy, from his will

It turns out David Cassidy, The Partridge Family icon who died last month, wasn't very close to his actor daughter, Katie Cassidy-because he left her nothing in his will. "It is my specific intent not to provide any benefits hereunder to Katherine Evelyn Cassidy and/or any descendant of Katherine Evelyn Cassidy", the will reads, according to the Blast.

His will states that his assets, worth about $US150,000, will be left to his 26-year-old son Beau, while any music memorabilia would go to Cassidy's three half-brothers.

The relationship between David and his family had been strained due to his battle with alcoholism, but in spite of their past conflicts, his family rushed to his side after hearing of his hospitalization.

'He was delighted to see them. There's been total resolution within the family.

Following Cassidy's death, Beau posted an old photo of him and his father to Instagram with the words: "I'll always, always love you".

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".

"This will be a daily reminder for me to share my gratitude with those I love as to never waste another minute ... thank you".

The "Arrow" actress was mostly raised by mother and stepfather, Williams' husband, Richard Benedon, the Miami Herald reported.

'I wasn't her father.

But Cassidy and his daughter revealed in an interview with People earlier this year that he was merely her father by biology.

"I've never had a relationship with her", he told People magazine in February.

It is important to point out that the will was filed in 2004 and David shared a tumultuous relationship with Katie, an actress best known for her portrayal of Laurel Lance, the alter ego of Black Canary on The CW's Arrow.
