Shortly after Aretha Franklin’s death last year, it was widely reported that she left no will. Earlier this month, three documents were discovered by Franklin’s niece Sabrina Owens and were filed in court on Monday, the Associated Press reports. Two handwritten wills from 2010 were found in a locked cabinet, and another from 2014 was found in a notebook underneath some couch cushions. A hearing about the documents’ validity is set for June 12.
If accepted as valid, the documents could shake up the state of Franklin’s estate. Franklin’s 2014 document requests that her son Kecalf Franklin serve as the estate’s personal representative—a role currently held by Owens. A breakdown from The Detroit Free Pressoffers a look at how Franklin reportedly wanted her property and money distributed to her family.
As promised, Detroit’s Chene Park was officially renamed Aretha Franklin Amphitheatre last week.
