At the time of his death, Daniel Broderick III had four children with his ex-wife — Lee, Kimberly, Daniel IV, and Rhett Broderick. His will implicitly stated that his estate be divided equally between all of his children, except for Lee Broderick. It was amended a year before his death to state that he made “no provision” for his second oldest daughter.
At the time, Lee Broderick told the Los Angeles Times that her father had warned he would write her out of his will.
“He had told me before that he was going to write me out, but I didn’t think he would,” she said. “But he did.” It’s not clear what happened between the two of them to prompt Daniel Broderick III to actually go through with it, but his assets were left for his other children.
