In his will, Ocasek claimed that Porizkova "abandoned" him, according to the document per Page Six.

“I have made no provision for my wife Paulina Porizkova (“Paulina”) as we are in the process of divorcing,” Ocasek wrote in the will. “Even if I should die before our divorce is final … Paulina is not entitled to any elective share … because she has abandoned me.”

It was Porizkova who found Ocasek unresponsive in his New York apartment in September. The two met on the set of The Cars' music video for "Drive" in 1984. The pair had been married for 28 years before divorcing in May of last year. They had two sons. He had four other sons from two previous marriages.
