Fighting over dad's rhinestones: Major inheritance fight expected after the late country legend Glen Campbell cut three of his eight kids from his will

Three of Glen Campbell's eight kids left out of his will

Country star Glen Campbell (left, in 2006) died on August 8, in Nashville, after a six-year battle with Alzheimer's disease. He was 81. Details of the Rhinestone Cowboy singer's will were released Wednesday, and show that three of his eight kids have been excluded. Kelli Campbell, 56 (top, center left); Travis Campbell, 51 (top, left); and Kane Campbell (top, center right), 43; are not to receive any portion of his estate or resulting trust, according to the document. All three are from his second marriage to Billie Jean Nunley, which ended in 1976. Travis and his older half-sister Debby Campbell-Cloyd (bottom, right) sued for the right to visit their father in 2015 - winning the court battle a year later. They claimed that their father's fourth wife, Kim, had banned them from seeing him for over a year, when she put in a care home due to his Alzheimer's. At stake in Campbell's will is an estimated $50million estate. A hearing has been scheduled for January to address the contested will. Campbell had five other children from three marriages including Debby Campbell-Cloyd (bottom, right); Dillon Campbell (top, right); Cal Campbell (bottom, left); Shannon Campbell (bottom, center right); and Ashley Campbell (bottom, center left).

Farewell to the Rhinestone Cowboy: Glen Campbell, superstar singer of 1960s and '70s, dies age 81 in Nashville following long battle with Alzheimer's

Glen Campbell, Rhinestone Cowboy singer, dies aged 81

Glen Campbell, the grinning, high-pitched entertainer who had such hits as "Rhinestone Cowboy" and spanned country, pop, television and movies, has died. He was 81. Campbell's publicist Sandy Brokaw says the singer died Tuesday morning in Nashville. No cause was immediately given. Campbell announced in June 2011 that he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and that it was in its early stages at that time. Campbell was one of the biggest stars of the late 1960s and 1970s. He sold more than 45 million records, had 12 gold albums and 75 chart hits. He co-starred with John Wayne in the 1969 movie "True Grit" and had a weekly audience of some 50 million people for the "Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour" on CBS from 1969 to 1972.

Glen Campbell and wife Kim celebrate 34th wedding anniversary

Ailing  country singer and actor Glen Campbell and his wife Kim Campbell celebrated their 34th wedding anniversary Monday with their favorite Sprinkles cupcake.

Kim Campbell shared her thoughts about the milestone on her blog at http://www.careliving.org.

“How do you celebrate your 34th wedding anniversary with someone who has lost his memories to Alzheimer’s and by his own words says, ‘I’m Not Gonna Miss You’?” Campbell wrote, referencing her husband’s last song. You certainly cannot ask, ‘Remember when we first met? or ‘Do you know how many years it’s been?’”

Glen Campbell revealed he had Alzheimer’s disease five years ago and his wife previously reported he is now in the final stages of its progression. He resides at a specialized facility in Nashville.

In her blog, Kim Campbell wrote that when losing a spouse to dementia, memories that should be enjoyed are painful because they are a reminder of what is lost. She said she had to “get beyond that” because enjoying memories is “what life is made of.”

Kim Campbell, who shares three adult children with her husband, enjoyed well-wishes from their daughter Ashley Campbell and then spent time going through cards and letters her husband had given her over their marriage.

“Thirty four years is a monumental testament to love, faith, selflessness, and commitment,” she wrote. “I will always celebrate the life and love I’ve shared with my husband and I will continue to do the remembering for us!”

Country music star Glen Campbell, 79, is suffering Alzheimer's and no longer knows what a guitar is for 

[3293203000000578-0-image-a-94_1459003031853]

The musical legend (right) is now in the 'late stages' of the disease, and has lost 'muscle memory' in his hands meaning he can't play guitar. His wife Kim said he was still 'happy and healthy'.
