LATEST: SIR Sean Connery's son JASON has defended his famous father - branding recent reports stating he has been left out of his dad's will "outrageous and hurtful lies and fabrications".
The former Bond star has been accused by Diane Cilento - whom he was married to for 11 years - of refusing to leave his son any inheritance.
But British TV actor Jason has slammed Cilento's claims, and states he is sick of his father being portrayed as "some sort of monster or tyrant".
In a statement, the 45-year-old says, "I am truly sick of reading about my father and our relationship and of his being portrayed as some sort of monster or tyrant who rules my life by 'cutting me off from his wealth'.
"This all could not be farther from the truth. (Connery) earned this money, through nothing but his own tireless hard work, and what he does with it and who he gives it to is completely up to him."
And he insists he has never spoke to his father on the subject of inheritance.
He explains, "He and I have never had a conversation where he said "you will never receive a penny" or anything to that effect. That is simply a lie."
Last week (22Jul08), Sean Connery also blasted his ex-wife's claims, calling her accusations "insane".
