Porizkova and The Cars frontman were separated and going through a divorce when she found him dead in their $10 million Manhattan mansion in September 2019 at age 75.

The next day, she learned that he had taken her out of his will several weeks earlier, claiming she had “abandoned” him, leaving her with no money to live on, including her own income.

“It took me completely by surprise, I had no idea,” she said. ‘I didn’t know how to make heads or tails out of something. The shock of finding him and the sadness that he’s dead and then “Oh, guess what? You’re not getting any money. He wants you to know you have money and he disinherited his two eldest sons.”‘

Ocasek left six sons, two from each of his three marriages. His eldest sons from his first marriage to Constance Campbell, Chris and Adam Otcask, were also omitted from his will.

“So I was really confused and I’ll never have the answers because we can’t ask him,” said Porizkova, who said she is close to both Chris and Adam’s families.

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit alum explained that she would inherit everything from her husband until three weeks before surgery, which she said “wouldn’t be fair at all” because they were getting divorced.

“I’m totally fine with inheriting a half that I thought was mine,” she said. “It turns out it’s not half under New York law, it’s only a third, but still, you know, I’m fine.”

Porizkova noted that reports that Ocasek was only worth $5 million at the time of his death were “bulls**t.”

When asked if the low number was “for tax purposes,” Goldman claimed it was.

“In the past, they just had to write down a number,” she says. “So they just deposited a small amount so it wouldn’t look like maybe he was holding back a lot of money from me? I do not know. I’m not sure.’

After Porizkova explained that she was getting the amount she owed under New York law, Goldman asked bluntly, “How much is it?” However, Porizkova refused to give an exact number.

“I can’t tell you that, [but] I’ll be fine. I’ll be fine. … I settled in last week. There you go. … I settled the estate last week. They were very honest,” she said. “They’ve given me what’s mine under New York state law, and we’re done.”

The model stressed that the $5 million number is “just one” amount that someone has put into it for some reason.”

Porizkova believes that Ocasek’s lawyers were the ones who pushed him to change his will at the last minute.

“My husband had a couple of lawyers and he was going to have surgery. … They just put together a really quick, kinda stupid thing,’ she said.

“I don’t think my husband had the brain capacity at the time to figure out what he was really doing. … He was a bit of a hypochondriac anyway. … I think he signed a piece of paper without thinking twice about it.’
