Aretha's handwritten wills have been found but will they hold up in court?

The Associated Press reports that Sabrina Owens, Aretha Franklin’s niece and the personal representative of Franklin’s estate, has reportedly found the late singer’s handwritten wills. The wills were filed in probate court in Oakland County, Michigan on Monday May 20th. Apparently, the wills — three of them altogether, were discovered by Owens after she came across a key for a locked cabinet. Two of the wills, which were from 2010, were found in the cabinet. The third will, from March 2014, was found under the cushions of a couch.

The will from 2014 details which assets should be left to Franklin’s family members.

Owens released a statement saying that “she remains neutral and wishes that all parties involved make wise choices on behalf of their mother, her rich legacy, the family and the Aretha Franklin estate…” 

Owens found all three wills in the same day at Franklin’s home. 

It was previously reported that Franklin left no will behind.
