Another Member Of Music Royalty Dies With No Will

Aretha Franklin, the legendary singer, succumbed to pancreatic cancer at the age of 76 on August 16, 2018, and she was accorded funeral rites usually reserved for heads of state. But the diva, who famously demanded respect, sadly died without a will.

Her estate is subject to probate and a long drawn out public legal proceeding to hear claims by her four children and other relatives — an undignified end for music royalty.

While Ms. Franklin was a genius by most measures and her music legacy lives on, she appears to have had a blind spot when it came to money and, perhaps, mortality.

A minister’s daughter, the Queen of Soul was known to demand payment in cash before performing live and to keep the cash near her onstage.
