Philip Seymour Hoffman didn't want his kids to be "trust fund" kids, which is why he rejected his accountant's suggestion to set aside money for his three children and instead left everything to their mother, court documents show.

Citing The New York Post, The Associated Press said the children's court-appointed lawyer recently interviewed the actor's accountant, David Friedman.

In a July 18 filing in Manhattan Surrogate Court, Friedman recalled conversations with Hoffman where the topic of a trust for his children was raised. He said Hoffman wanted his estimated $35 million fortune to go his longtime partner and the children's mother, Mimi O'Donnell.

According to the filing, Friedman said Hoffman treated O'Donnell "in the same manner as if she were a spouse."

The court-appointed attorney says the actor's will should be approved by the court because there isn't anything suspicious about it.

In his will, Hoffman did specify that he would like his son to grow up near New York, Chicago, or San Francisco so that he would be "exposed to the culture, arts and architecture that such cities offer."
