The family of one of country music’s biggest stars are fighting over his estimated $50million fortune.
Glen Campbell, who rose to fame with hits like ‘Rhinestone Cowboy’ and ‘Wichita Lineman,’ died August 8 after a six-year battle with Alzheimer’s. He was 81 at the time.

On Wednesday, details of the country legend’s will were released, showing he left out three of his eight kids.

The will was written in September 2006, more than five years before he announced his Alzheimer’s diagnosis. It stipulates that all three of his kids from his second marriage to Billie Jean Nunley, which ended in 1976, were not to benefit from his estate or any resulting trust.

Those children are 56-year-old Kelli, 51-year-old Travis, and 48-year-old Kane.
Campbell had five more children with three other wives. He had eldest daughter Debby Campbell-Cloyd, 61, with his first wife Diane Kirk, 37-year-old Dillon with his third wife Sarah Barg and three kids with his fourth wife Kimberly Woollen – Cal, 34; Shannon, 32; and Ashley, 30.

Kim stayed with Campbell until the end and is named as the executor of his will.

it gives no explanation why three of the kids were cut out.

However, Travis and his older half-sister Debby did file a lawsuit in 2015 when they said Kim had kept them from seeing their father for over year.
