The wife of the late Cars frontman Ric Ocasek will have to face the music: He cut her out of his will.
“I have made no provision for my wife Paulina Porizkova (“Paulina”) as we are in the process of divorcing,” says the will, signed by the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer weeks before his death, according to the New York Post, which viewed the document.
“Even if I should die before our divorce is final … Paulina is not entitled to any elective share … because she has abandoned me.”
Former supermodel Porizkova, who discovered Ocasek’s body on Sept. 15, announced in May 2018 that they had “peacefully separated.” The two met while filming the Cars’ music video “Drive” in 1984, married in 1989 and had two sons together.
A filing of Ocasek’s assets indicated $5 million in copyrights, $100,000 in “tangible personal property” and $15,000 in cash, the Post reported. An estates attorney told the tabloid the new wave rocker likely had more stashed away elsewhere.
Porizkova, 54, first appeared on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 1984 and has had a successful modeling career that included a lucrative Estée Lauder contract.
HuffPost couldn’t immediately reach Porizkova or the person listed as the will’s executor.
