Don McLean has removed one of his sons from his will.
The 75-year-old “American Pie” singer revealed that he cut off his daughter, Jackie McLean, financially after she gave a revealing interview accusing him of mental and emotional abuse.
“I stopped supporting my daughter last year,” Don told the Daily Mail on Thursday. “I have a son [Wyatt], you know, who grew up the same, who thinks I’m a great dad, and who doesn’t have any of these complaints. But I told my daughter: ‘If you talk about me and criticize me, I’m going to disinherit you.’
When 31-year-old Jackie did just that in June and told Rolling Stone that “there was a constant state of fear” in their home growing up, Don told her she could say goodbye to her fortune.

“She has been automatically disinherited, that’s almost a $ 3 million trust fund that went down the tubes,” he told the British newspaper. “I have always supported my daughter: $ 30,000, $ 40,000, $ 50,000 a year, doubling her husband’s salary. I wanted to make sure the grandchildren had everything they wanted.
During her interview in June, Jackie, who is a singer with the indie rock duo Roan Yellowthorn, claimed that her father would “go crazy” for the smallest things when she was a child.

“If someone was moving an item around the house and they didn’t know where it was, then they would make a fuss for hours,” he told Rolling Stone. “And everyone was constantly nervous because it was chaos.”
Don vehemently denied Jackie’s accusations, claiming that he had been a loving father who always supported his daughter, until he cut her off.

Jackie’s mother, Patrisha McLean, was Don’s second wife. They were married from 1987 to 2016 and also share a son Wyatt.
The exes’ marriage fell apart when Don was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor of domestic violence. He pleaded guilty to four of the six charges as part of a plea deal and did not receive any jail time.

In her police statement, Patrisha stated: “Don terrified me for four hours until the 911 call that I think could have saved my life. He was scaring me with the intensity of his anger and the madness in his eyes.
Don has now claimed to the Daily Mail that he “endured physical attacks” from Patrisha and left his marriage because he wanted to “do something else with this latest chapter” of his life.

Patrisha denied the latest allegations and told the newspaper: “This is coercion. This is what domestic abusers do.
Now he’s dating Paris Dylan, a voluptuous 27-year-old aspiring model.

Don was delighted that Dylan “loves to wear a bikini, but I think she’s the best pin-up girl in America, and I tell her all the time.”
“Of course that makes my ex-wife and daughter go crazy, but I don’t care because they don’t care about me.”
