Ric Ocasek's estranged wife Paulina Porizkova is speaking out after reports surfaced that she was cut out of the late Cars frontman's will. The model addressed the situation through an Instagram post.

"I’ve known about the will since the day after Ric passed," she wrote alongside a happy family photo. "All you have heard from me since- is inspite [sic] of that. #loveneverdies"

Porizkova was caring for Ocasek during his last days, and was actually the one to find him the day he passed away in September. Days after he died, she left a simple "thank you" message to fans who had paid tribute to the rockstar.

Despite the special time she spent with her husband at the end of his life, Page Six reports he specifically excluded her from his will, claiming she "abandoned" him.

“I have made no provision for my wife Paulina Porizkova (“Paulina”) as we are in the process of divorcing,” he wrote in his last wishes. “Even if I should die before our divorce is final … Paulina is not entitled to any elective share … because she has abandoned me.” The document was dated August 28, 2019. He passed away on September 15.
