Glen Campbell passed away on Aug. 8, and it looks like the legal battle over his estate is just getting started.

According to “The Tennessean,” the late singer’s 13-page will, dated Sept. 1, 2006, specifically excludes his daughter Kelli and sons William and Wesley from getting any piece of his estate, estimated at $50 million or more. In fact, the will includes language saying Glen was “specifically excluding” those three of his eight children from receiving anything.

Glen’s wife, Kim, is named as executor of the will. They were married in 1982 and had three children, who are included in the will. Glen has two other children from a previous marriage who are also eligible to benefit from his estate.

A hearing on the will is scheduled for Jan. 18 in Nashville.

This isn’t the first time the Campbell family’s divisions have been aired publicly. In 2016, Glen’s eldest daughter, Debby, and his son, Travis, were instrumental in getting a law passed in Tennessee restricting conservators from blocking interactions with loved ones.

According to “Rolling Stone,” the Campbell children’s involvement in that legislation stemmed from allegations that Kim Campbell tried to stop them from visiting their father as he battled Alzheimer’s disease.
