A July 18 court filing regarding the estate of late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman reveals the 46-year-old, who died from a drug overdose in early February, left his entire $35 million estate to partner of 14 years, Mimi O'Donnell.
Despite suggestions from his accountant, David Friedman, that he set aside money for his three kids — Cooper, 10, Tallulah, 7, and Willa, 5 — the Oscar winner refused, stating he "did not want his children to be considered 'trust fund' kids," the documents reveal.
According to court-appointed attorney, James Cahill Jr., who is tasked with protecting the interests of Philip's children, the Capote star believed Mimi would efficiently take care of them.
It was also revealed that although the pair, who met in 1999 while working on a play, never married, Philip treated Mimi as a spouse in his estate, rather than as a partner or girlfriend.
The New York native raised another concern regarding his eldest child Cooper, detailing where he'd like his son to live if he were gone. This request was written in 2004, before Philip welcomed his two daughters.
“It is my strong desire [that] my son, Cooper Hoffman, be raised and reside in or near the borough of Manhattan [or] Chicago, Illinois, or San Francisco, California,” he stated.

“The purpose of this request is so that my son will be exposed to the culture, arts and architecture that such cities offer."
Cooper and his siblings currently reside in Manhattan with their mother.
