Tony Curtis was married to six different women and had six children, including the late son Nicholas — what a family legacy he created!

Curtis and his last wife, Jill Vandenberg, tied the knot in 1998 after five years of a romance. Though she was 42 years younger, the huge age gap never seemed to be an issue for the couple. Curtis claimed:

The age gap doesn't bother us. We laugh a lot. My body is functioning and everything is good.

The former Hollywood icon didn't father any child with Jill Vandenberg. A long time ago the Tony Curtis Estate held an auction and all money went to his last widowed wife, while all his children got nothing.

The five children were admittedly upset both with the action and the will, which Tony Curtis left before the fatal cardiac arrest in 2010. The will narrated that he intentionally disinherited them without any apparent reason.

Moreover, Jill Vandenberg held the auction without notifying Tony's children and hence, without giving a chance to take part in it — at least, that's what Allegra Curtis told in an interview back then.

Needless to say, the children – who were estranged from their dad – were not happy about such an arrangement. Jamie Lee Curtis even revealed a shocking statement, saying:

He was not a father and he was not interested in being a father.

Jamie Lee, who is an established actress herself, admitted it was difficult for her and her siblings, growing up without being shown affection as they wanted it.

Certainly, money isn't everything but it's still sad to realize both Tony and Jill disinherited all his children after all those marriages.
