Moises de la Renta, adopted by Oscar from an orphanage in their native Dominican Republic, was left a relatively threadbare portion of his dad’s $26 million estate — and was warned that if he ever tried to contest the will, he would be cut out completely, court documents show.
The rest of his funds was put in a trust to be split between Annette, her three children and Moises, who was his dad’s only child.
The will puts Annette, Oscar’s second wife, in control of the funds, which include his $3.3 million Citibank account and a $1.2 million tax refund.
For example, Annette billed the estate $80,000 on May 18 for expenses including a $2,533.82 trip to a Citarella gourmet market and $13,933 for landscaping.
Oscar later publicly lashed out at his son.
Oscar said he adopted Moises, then just 24 hours old, after his first wife, Francoise, died of cancer.
But in 1989, Oscar wed Annette, daughter of mining magnate/philanthropist Charles Engelhard.
Moises’ fashion line, MDLR, never took off.
Still, he’s not exactly poor, buying a Soho pad for $2.4 million in 2010.
Annette’s lawyers declined to comment. Moises did not return messages.
