Aretha Franklin Died Without a Will and Net Worth of $80 Million
Raise your hand if you believe you're Aretha Franklin's illegitimate child!
Aretha Franklin passed away in Detroit, Michigan last Thursday at the age of 76. Franklin's cause of death was advanced pancreatic cancer.
According to CelebrityNetWorth.com Aretha was worth $80 Million. TMZ cited court documents showing that no will was left behind by the "Queen of Soul".
So what happens to Aretha's estate? It will be divided equally among her four children, which leaves each of them with $20 Million.
Aretha left behind a special needs son who will need a lot of financial support for the rest of his life.
Many journalists suspect that Aretha Franklin didn't see the end coming or thought of a will as low on her priority list.
She clearly wasn't worried about her offspring battling each other in court for money, that says a lot about the "Queen of Soul" and how she raised her kids.
