Philip Seymour Hoffman Didn't Leave His Children Any Money, Because He Didn't Want Them to Be "Trust Fund Kids"

Before PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN passed away earlier this year, his accountant suggested that he set aside some money for his three children.  But Philip rejected that idea, because he didn't want them to be spoiled.

His accountant says they talked about it a few times, but Philip didn't want his children to be, quote, "trust fund kids."

His kids . . . an 11-year-old son, a seven-year-old daughter and a five-year-old daughter . . . aren't getting any money DIRECTLY, but they will be taken care of.

Hoffman left his whole estate, which is estimated at $35 MILLION, to his longtime girlfriend, Mimi O'Donnell.  She's the mother of all three kids, and the accountant said Philip believed she'd, quote, "take care of the children."

 Earlier this year, we heard that Hoffman's will asked that the kids be raised in Manhattan, San Francisco or Chicago . . . so that they could be exposed to, quote, "the culture, arts, and architecture" that they offer.
