Rooney cut kids from will LOS ANGELES: Mickey Rooney signed his last will just weeks before his death, leaving a modest estate to a stepson who had been his caretaker. The new will disinherited the actors eight surviving children, as well as his estranged wife. But Rooney had no intention of ending his Hollywood career anytime soon, his lawyer said. His death on Sunday occurred after the actor began to have difficulty breathing during an afternoon nap, lawyer Michael Augustine said. The actor had been in good spirits and was looking forward to continuing to appear in movies after filming a scene for the upcoming instalment of the Night at the Museum franchise. Augustine said Rooney, 93, passed a physical required before he could start filming and his death was due to natural causes, including complications related to diabetes. Police and coroners officials were informed of Rooney's death but said no investigation was necessary. Rooneys will was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday. It was signed by Rooney on March 11 and called for his stepson Mark Rooney and his wife to be the sole beneficiaries of the actors estate, which was valued at only $US18,000 ($A19,290). The actor designated Augustine to serve as the executor of his estate, stating that he did not want any relative handling his final affairs. Despite a show business career spanning more than 80 years, Rooney said he had lost most of his fortune because of elder abuse and financial mismanagement by another one of his stepsons.
