Elizabeth Edwards Cut John Out of Her Will

Elizabeth Edwards cut her estranged husband, former U.S. presidential candidate John Edwards, from her will less than a week before she died, Politico reported Wednesday, after obtaining a copy of the document.

In the will signed on Dec. 1, six days before she died, Elizabeth Edwards left her estate to her three children, naming eldest daughter Cate, a lawyer, executor of the will.

"All of my furniture, furnishings, household goods, jewelry, china, silverware and personal effects and any automobiles owned by me at the time of my death, I give and bequeath to my children,” the will stated.

There was no mention of her husband in the five-page document. The pair separated shortly after after Sen. John Edwards admitted in January 2010 that he had a child out of wedlock.

Elizabeth Edwards died in her North Carolina home on Dec. 7 home after a six-year battle with breast cancer.
