News 11/11/2019

Reports of Paulina Porizkova, who was married to the late Cars frontman, Ric Ocasek, has been left out of his will.

Porizkova has responded saying that she had knwon about the situation sincec the day after his death.

Although the couple had announced their separation in 2018, they have yet to divorce legally and had remained in close contact. Porizkova also spent the final two weeks of Ocasek's life looking after him as he recovers from surgery (unrelated to his death).

Page Six reports that Ocasek wrote in his will: "I have made no provision for my wife Paulina Porizkova ("Paulina") as we are in the process of divorcing," the singer wrote. "Even if I should die before our divorce is final… Paulina is not entitled to any elective share… because she has abandoned me."

Porizkova explained on Instagram that she knew about the will since after Ocasek has passed. "All you have heard from me since – is in spite of that," she writes while adding a hashtag '#loveneverdies'.
