Kirk Douglas’ (born Issur Danielovitch; December 9, 1916 – February 5, 2020) $61M fortune given mostly to charity, none went to son Michael Douglas.
Actor and philanthropist Kirk Douglas chose to leave his $61 million fortune to charity, rather than giving any to his son Michael Douglas.
Kirk Douglas, who passed away earlier this month at the age of 103, wanted $50 million given away via the Douglas Foundation.
The beneficiaries included St Lawrence University, Westwood’s Sinai Temple, Culver City’s Kirk Douglas Theatre and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, according to the outlet.
His son Michael Douglas, 75, was not a beneficiary.
Michael announced the death of his father on Feb. 5 in an Instagram post, which included several photos of his iconic father and various family members
“It is with tremendous sadness that my brothers and I announce that Kirk Douglas left us today at the age of 103. To the world, he was a legend, an actor from the golden age of movies who lived well into his golden years, a humanitarian whose commitment to justice and the causes he believed in setting a standard for all of us to aspire to.”
