Court: Hoffman didn't want 'trust fund' kids
The New York Post (http://bit.ly/1ntwUa9 ) says the children's court-appointed lawyer recently interviewed the actor's accountant, David Friedman.
In a July 18 filing in Manhattan Surrogate Court, Friedman recalled conversations with Hoffman where the topic of a trust for his children was raised. He said Hoffman wanted his estimated $35 million fortune to go his longtime partner and the children's mother, Mimi O'Donnell.
According to the filing, Friedman said Hoffman treated O'Donnell "in the same manner as if she were a spouse."
The court-appointed attorney says the actor's will should be approved by the court because there isn't anything suspicious about it.
