Three handwritten wills made by the late Aretha Franklin have been discovered in her home.
The Queen of Soul's family thought she hadn't left any documents declaring her last wishes and how she wanted her assets dividing when she passed away in August 2018, but lawyers have now revealed they uncovered three handwritten notes in her Detroit home.
According to her estate's attorney, David Bennett, two wills dated from 2010, were found in a locked cabinet after a key to the dresser was located, while the most recent one, which was written in 2014, was found under cushions in the 'Natural Woman' hitmaker's living room.
Some of the writing - which includes notes in the margins and scratched-out text - has proven to be hard to decipher but appear to give her assets to various members of her family.
The attorney filed the wills - which were discovered earlier this month - in court on Monday but he is unsure whether they are legally binding under Michigan law.
