Don McLean says his daughter's $3M trust fund went 'down the tubes' following abuse accusations

Don McLean, the famous 'American Pie' singer revealed that he "cut off his daughter, Jackie McLean, financially after she gave a tell-all interview accusing him of mental and emotional abuse." 

Don stated "I stopped supporting my daughter last year. . .I have a son [Wyatt], you know, who grew up the same way who thinks I'm a great father and who has none of these complaints. But I said to my daughter, if you speak out about me and trash me, I'm going to disinherit you."

Don's daughter alleged that her dad would "turn into a crazy person over the slightest things when she was a child." She also claimed that "If somebody moved an item in the house and he didn't know where it was, then he would go on a rampage for hours." 

Don denied his daughter's accusations and claimed that he has always loved and supported his daughter—until he cut her off.
