When Aretha Franklin passed away in August it was believed that she didn’t leave a will, but it turns out that may not be the case. In fact, a lawyer claims that three handwritten wills have recently been found in the late Queen of Soul’s Detroit home.
The lawyer claims one of those wills was inside a spiral notebook found under the cushions in the living room. It is the most recent document dated March 2014. Although the document is said to be hard to read, it reportedly leaves her assets to members of her family.
All three wills were reportedly discovered earlier this month, with two of them, written in 2010, found in a once-locked cabinet.
Aretha’s lawyer David Bennett has now filed all three wills with the court, although a hearing is scheduled to be held on June 12th at which point it will be decided whether they are legal under Michigan law. According to a report, two of Aretha’s four sons objected to the wills.
