It comes just weeks after Katie posted a touching message on social media following her father's death saying "Words cant express the solace our family's received from all the love & support during this trying time".

Cassidy died of organ failure on November 21 aged 67.

The Partridge family might have been picture ideal, but David Cassidy had a complex relationship with his real-life family.

The star told People magazine in 2009: "I didn't have to parent her".

Katie and David have had a strained relationship over the years, with David previously admitting that she was exclusively raised by her mum, former model Sherry Williams.

Despite their differences, Cassidy said he was "proud" of his daughter for her career.

The arrangements were revealed in documents obtained by the Blast on Wednesday.

The majority of it has been inherited by son Beau, a 26-year-old singer-songwriter.

The document reads: "All references in this Trust to my "child or children" are to BEAU DEVIN CASSIDY and such references shall not include KATHERINE EVELYN CASSIDY nor any descendant of Katherine Evelyn Cassidy".

In June, the "Arrow" actress announced her engagement to boyfriend Matthew Rodgers during a romantic getaway to African island Mauritius. "'It's hard for me to even accept how old she is now, like 30".

He said, however, that he was proud of her achievements as an actor.

After his death, Katie took to Twitter to share an update with her fans. His three half-siblings, however, will receive anything that classifies as "music memorabilia".

The will was originally filed in 2004 and named his then-wife, Susan, as the personal representative under the will.

Despite Katie's complicated relationship with her biological father, she rushed to be by his dad's side. The couple were married more than 22 years before separating in 2013, finalizing their divorce two years later. Katie and Cassidy were last pictured together at a red carpet event in 2007.
