The Cars frontman Ric Ocasek passed away at age 75 on September 15 and it was revealed this week that he cut his estranged wife, supermodel and Tyra Banks irritator Paulina Porizova, 54, out of his will. This was somewhat of a surprise to the public seeing as Ric and Paulina, who were married for almost 30 years and separated for three, still lived together as a family and she wrote lovely tributes to him on social media after his death. She now says she knew he was getting back at her from the afterlife from pretty much the jump and celebrated his life online despite it.
Paulina had posted lovingly about Ric on social media in the weeks after his death, and revealed on Instagram yesterday that she knew about the will the day after Ric died, thus her tributes to him were unconditional. Shit, I would have had the body thrown into the harbor after finding out I wasn’t getting any of that “Drive” money but people tell me I’m a little petty.
In the will, which Ric had drawn up in August, he decreed that Paulina not receive any of his estate or holdings because she had “abandoned” him during their ongoing divorce proceedings. This was despite still living with him, helping him recuperate after a recent surgery, and bringing him his coffee in bed in the morning. (Which by the way, was how she found out he had died.)
In an Instagram post of a photo of the couple with their two now-adult sons (Jonathan, 21, and Oliver, 26), Paulina says she knew about the minus dollars she was getting way before the rest of us did.
So it was nice of her to keep it graceful despite knowing that she wasn’t getting paid.
That was either the quickest will reading in history or he had pinned a copy to his PJs just in case he died in his sleep as a final fuck you to her. Wow, thanks, Ric.
