Children of Tony Curtis Sue For Portion of Last Will

The children of actor Tony Curtis, who were reportedly left out of their father's last will and testament, are suing to gain a portion of his significant fortune, the Daily Mail reports.

According to the news source, Curtis' eldest child, Kelly, has already taken legal action to contest the will, while second daughter Alexandra is also reportedly pondering a lawsuit.

The news provider reports that the appeals of the last will and testament stem from the fact that Tony Curtis always said that there would be money for his children and grandchildren when he died. The actor, who starred in films such as "Some Like It Hot" and "Spartacus," died last September.

Actress Jamie Lee Curtis, Tony's daughter, has reportedly decided against pursuing legal action related to the last will and testament, according to the news source.

"No one should be speculating on Jamie’s reasons for not being involved in the lawsuit," said her publicist, Heidi Schaeffer. "There is no further comment."
