After the public announcement of Glen Campbell‘s diagnosis with Alzheimer’s Disease in 2011, as his loved ones and fans watch him live with the disease for more than six years, a rift between his family members about visitation rights sparked new legislation in Tennessee. Now, following Campbell’s death in August, the family feud is once again in the spotlight: Three of Campbell’s eight children were excluded from his will, the Tennessean reports.
The will, which which was composed in 2006, names Campbell’s wife Kim as the executor of his estate, which is estimated to be worth about $50 million, and leaves out any direct benefits to Campbell’s children with his second wife, Billie Jean Nunley. Together, Campbell and Nunley had three children: a daughter Kelli and sons William Travis and Wesley Kane. A hearing on Campbell’s will is now set for Jan. 18 before Davidson Probate Judge David “Randy” Kennedy.
Travis, who is Campbell’s oldest son with Nunley, and Campbell’s daughter Debby, from his first marriage to Diane Kirk), spearheaded the aforementioned lawsuit for visitation rights when their father was moved to assisted living in 2015. Campbell and his third wife, Sarah Barg, had one child together, Dillon, while Campbell and his wife Kim had three children: Cal, Shannon and Ashley, all of whom shared the stage with their father at the end of his career.
Campbell is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and a Lifetime Acheivement Award Winner from the Recording Academy. At the 2018 Grammy Awards, he is nominated for his song “Arkansas Farmboy,” from his farewell album, Adios.
