Burt Reynolds Left Son Out of His Will
Details about iconic actor Burt Reynolds' will have been released, two weeks after his death.
According to the documents obtained by TMZ, Reynolds left his only son Quinton out of the will, but did create a trust for him. The will stated, “I intentionally omit him from this, my Last Will and Testament, as I have provided for him during my lifetime in my Declaration of Trust.”
In 2011, Reynolds signed the will, which appointed his niece Nancy Lee Brown Hess as the personal representative of his estate. He also listed great-nephew Brian Ritchey Brown and great-niece Tracy Erin Rogers as personal representatives in the event Nancy is not able to perform the function.
His death certificate recently revealed that Nancy was also in charge of his remains.

Burt was a wonderful director and actor. He was a big part of my life for twelve years and Quinton's father for thirty years. We will miss him and his great laugh.”
