The Queen of Soul died without a Will!! What will happen to her musical dynasty? Who gets her Estate?…her four kids, equally.
What if one of the kids is a spendthrift? What if one of the kids has special needs? What if she didn’t want her kids to get an equal share of her $80 Million Dollar Estate? What if she wanted her favorite charity/church to get some? NO WILL…NO RESPECT!
Without a Will, no one knows what Aretha’s last wishes were! She should have had a Will…and a Trust.
The moral of the story: if Aretha had her lawyer draw up a Will and/or Trust, all of this uncertainty could have been avoided!
