Pinter Leaves Fortune To Estranged Son
Late playwright HAROLD PINTER left a huge chunk of his fortune to his estranged son, even though the pair had not spoken for 15 years before his death.
The legendary writer passed away on 24 December 2008 following a battle with cancer.
Now the star's will has revealed he set aside a country cottage in Cambridgeshire, England and a lump sum of $480,000 (£300,000) for his 51-year-old son Daniel.
Pinter fell out with Daniel, his only child, after divorcing Vivien Merchant in 1977 following an affair with Lady Antonia Fraser, who later become Pinter's second wife.
The pair never reconciled and had not spoken in 15 years prior to his death, according to Britain's Mail on Sunday newspaper.
Pinter left the bulk of his fortune to Fraser, making provisions for her six children as well as marking out a substantial donation to his local cricket team.
