NEW YORK — Court documents show Philip Seymour Hoffman rejected his accountant’s suggestion that he set aside money for his three children because he didn’t want them to be “trust fund” kids.

The New York Post says 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.
