BURT REYNOLDS LEAVES SON OUT OF WILL, CREATES TRUST INSTEAD

Screen icon Burt Reynolds left his son Quinton out of his will, but still made sure he’d get support. The will, obtained by TMZ, states: "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."

Reynolds signed the will in 2011. He appointed his niece Nancy Lee Brown Hess as his personal representative for his estate, and then appointed his great nephew Brian Ritchey Brown and then his great niece Tracy Erin Rogers as next in line after Hess.

Reynolds may have created the trust to avoid estate taxes. He died earlier this month at 82. Quinton was born in 1988 and is the adopted son of Reynolds and his ex-wife Loni Anderson.
