Glen Campbell's Widow Is Happy She Won't Share The $50 Million Estate With Late Husband's Kids

January 8, 2020

Glen Campbell, the legendary American singer, songwriter and TV host, died on August 7, 2017, at the age of 81. He was in the final stages of Alzheimer's disease, which he was diagnosed with back in 2010.

As reported by The Tennessean, Glen Campbell had previously excluded three of his children from the will, so they couldn’t benefit from his property.

Sharing the fortune

The 13-page will excluded his daughter, Kelli, and sons, William and Wesley, from Glen’s estate.

He decided to leave everything to his wife, Kimberly Campbell, and five other children.

He was the father of eight children, but made the decision to remove three of them from previous marriages from the will.

These three children have stopped their efforts to fight the injustice in the will.

Wife's statement

Now, Kimberly Campbell is satisfied and even made a happy statement:

The filing of a will contest last January came as a shock to me. There was never any merit to these claims. I am pleased to finally put this difficult experience behind me so that I may focus on my family, my continued mission to educate, destigmatize, and raise awareness for Alzheimer's disease - and to honor my husband and his amazing music legacy.

Previously, she reported that the children never called their dad. According to Inside Edition, she said:

They never ever called me to see how he was doing or if they could help.

Even though some people consider Glen Campbell's decision to exclude kids from the will rather controversial, we should try to respect it. Rest in peace, Glen Campbell! We hope that all matters will be resolved, and there will be no misunderstandings.
