Aretha Franklin Leaves No Will


The legendary soul singer Aretha Franklin passed away last week from advanced pancreatic cancer at the age of 76.
According to CNN, Franklin did not have a will or trust.
Sources say her four sons have filed documents listing themselves as interested parties. 
Under Michigan law, if an unmarried person dies without a will, their assets are divided equally among any children. 
Franklin's niece has also asked the court to appoint her as a personal representative of the estate.
Her lawyer of nearly three decades, Don Wilson says "I was after her for a number of years to do a trust...it would have expedited things and kept them out of probate and kept things private." 
The lack of a will means the finances will become public in Oakland County Probate Court. 
Public viewings will be August 28 and 29 at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit. Her funeral will take place August 31 in Detroit with family and friends. 
Franklin will be buried at Woodlawn Cemetery in Detroit.
