Philip Seymour Hoffman left his entire $35million (£20.5million) fortune to his long-time partner Mimi O'Donnell to prevent his children from becoming 'trust fund' kids.

Court documents show the late Hollywood actor, who died on 2 February from a drugs overdose, rejected his accountant's advice to set money aside for his three children.

Instead, Mimi O'Donnell, his partner of 14 years and the mother of his children, will inherit his entire estate.

According to a July 18 filing in Manhattan Surrogate Court, the Hunger Games star's accountant, David Friedman, recalled conversations with Hoffman where they discussed trust funds for the couple's children, Cooper, ten, Tallulah, seven, and five-year-old Willa.

Friedman said Hoffman treated O'Donnell "in the same manner as if she were a spouse" and believed she would take care of their children.

"The size and nature of the jointly held assets support the position that [Hoffman] regarded [O'Donnell] as the natural object of his bounty," court-appointed attorney James Cahill Jr said in court papers.

The will, which was written in 2004 before the birth of his daughters, also stipulated where the actor would like his children to be raised.

"It is my strong desire [that] my son, Cooper Hoffman, be raised and reside in or near the borough of Manhattan [or] Chicago, Illinois, or San Francisco, California," he said in the document.

"The purpose of this request is so that my son will be exposed to the culture, arts and architecture that such cities offer."

Hoffman was reportedly found dead in his West Village apartment surrounded by 70 bags of heroin and 20 used syringes.

Before his untimely death, O'Donnell had reportedly kicked Hoffman out of their apartment to protect their children from his drug addiction.
