Wow, didn't see this coming!! TMZ is reporting that Aretha Franklin did not have a will at the time of her death. The site claims court documents state the Queen of Soul passed "intestate," meaning she had no will at the time of death. This means, according to Michigan law, that her estate will be divided equally between her four children. I'm a believer that everyone should have a will, but I guess Aretha didn't think that way. Her estate is estimated to be 80 million dollars so that will be roughly 20 million each for her kids, though after taxes and fees, it will be less than that. Meanwhile, Aretha’s funeral is set for next week, with an open viewing for the public taking place on August 28th and 29th and a private service for just family and friends set for August 31st.
