(Newser) – Oscar de la Renta was not happy when only child Moises, the son he adopted as a newborn from the Dominican Republic, started his own fashion line in 2005. And apparently that grudge persisted right up until de la Renta's death in October, because Moises, 30, was left what Page Six describes as "a relatively threadbare portion" of the fashion designer's $26 million estate in a will signed just weeks before de la Renta's death. The kicker: If Moises attempts to contest the will, it stipulates that he won't even get that "relatively threadbare" amount.

Most of the 82-year-old's estate was left to his second wife, with some also left to her three children, and one of those three children was named as alternate executor of the will—which Page Six sees as another snub to Moises. As for the aforementioned fashion line, MDLR, it did not find success. (Check out more controversial celebrity wills.)
