Glen Campbell's widow reveals court battle over country legend's $50 million estate

Glen Campbell, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2011, passes away on August 8, 2017, at the age of 81.

Less than a year after his death, Campbell’s widow Kimberly Woollen revealed many details about a court battle she is involved. The country star’s children want a part of his $50 million estate, but they were cut out of the will.

According to Shared, Woollen was in charge of taking care of Campbell from 2011 until 2014, when she followed the doctor’s advise and interned him in a long-term care and treatment facility.

Woollen confessed that she was attacked by her husband’s fans and children as they accused her of neglecting him. She even got death threats about something that people were not completely aware of.

Some of the things people said about her were that she ‘withheld’ his basic necessities as she used to hide the toothbrushes. Woollen confessed that she did it because he wouldn’t know what they were for and used them to rinse the toilet.

Apart from that, people blamed her because of her decision of putting him in a health care facility as she ‘should have’ hired a ‘big and strong man’ to handle him.

November 2006 God bless Glen. He played every hit the audience wanted to hear and even took a drunken song request from one of the local yahoos plus some Beach Boy stuff in tribute of touring with them. He looked good, not young but definitely good for 69 years old. His voice was EXACTLY what you hear on the radio. I was impressed. So, get this. Not only did we have super duper VIP tickets and did we sit second row center, but we MET the dude! Yep. Friend Maura interviewed him earlier in the week for the local newspaper so she reminded him, he said he remembered her, blah, blah. We took a photo and she then asked if he heard us yelling for him. He was momentarily distracted by a handler and turned around in time for her to say, "We're hoarse." He looked at both of us, smiled and politely dismissed us with a "Hope you enjoyed the show and it was very nice meeting you." As we were walking away I told Maura that Glen thought she said "We're whores." She was mortified but the remainder of the night I asked "Are we hoarse or whores, I keep getting confused." Then we would do our best hoarse whore voices.

Woollen pointed out that she had to put child locks on the kitchen to avoid him hurting himself, something that would make him mad. Campbell’s elderly children, Debby and Travis, sued Woollen to be allowed to visit their father.

The widow admitted that she never blocked them from visiting him and that all his children did was attack her, but the truth was that Travis never visited Campbell before his Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis.

When Campbell died, his will did nothing to resolve things as he cut three of his eight children out of it. His $50 million estate was taken to court as Woollen was the executor of the will, although she said it was Campbell’s decision.

Woollen filed a lawsuit, as well, seeking for $500,000 divided in the following way: $127,000 for caregiver expenses, another $134,000 for assisted living expenses, $68,000 to install a security fence, and $175,000 for legal costs.
