Aretha Franklin's sons disagree over who should manage her estate after three new handwritten wills were found at her home.
While Sabrina Owens, Aretha's niece and an administrator at the University of Michigan, has been appointed executor of her estate, attorneys for Theodore White II last week told a Michigan judge in a court filing that he should be named co-executor, along with Owens.
It was originally thought that Aretha 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 recently revealed they uncovered three handwritten wills 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.
