Designer Oscar De La Renta Snubs Son Out Of Will

The adopted son of late fashion designer Oscar de la Renta has been snubbed from his father's $26M will because of a bitter fashion fallout.

According to Page Six, 30-year-old Moises de la Renta was left a very small piece of his late father's fortune, and was warned he'd be cut out completely if he contested the will.

Moises had a fallout with Oscar back in 2005 when he launched his own fashion line, MDLR, aiming to attract younger crowd.

"Moises did a little line, five or six pieces," his father told New York Magazine at the time. "But that doesn't make a fashion designer."

MDLR never took off.

Watching the legendary 79-year-old backstage Tuesday night, it was clear that de la Renta is virtually immune to the circus and hype that accompanies New York Fashion Week. For de la Renta, despite decades in the business, each show commands his total attention as a personal unveiling of a labor of love. (AP Photo/Charles Sykes)

Oscar de la Renta died last October at the age of 82 and left majority of his estate to his wife, including real estate. The rest was divided among her three children and Moises.

After de la Renta's wife lost her battle to cancer, the fashion designer adopted Moises from an orphanage in the Dominican Republic when he was just a few hours old.

"I never thought I would get married again," he said. "I thought my son and I would have each other.''
