The Blast is reporting that Burt Reynolds left his niece, Nancy Hess, in charge of executing his will instead of his son, Quinton.
According to court documents obtained by the media house, the late Reynolds’ will, which was signed by the actor in 2011, was filed in Florida on Friday.
Reynolds named his niece Nancy Lee Brown Hess as the personal representative of the estate. He completely put his possessions into a trust that Hess will now control.
However, the later Reynolds mentioned his son, Quinton, saying he provided for him through a trust, “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.”
This news comes one week after news surfaced that the legendary actor went into cardiac arrest at a hospital in Florida on Thursday, September 6. CPR was performed before he passed on.
He was 82.
