Following a long battle with Alzheimer’s Disease, Glen Campbell sadly passed away last year. However, the battle over his will has been ongoing ever since…

Taste of Country is reporting that the singer’s longtime publicist is facing a subpoena to testify in the court battle. Sanford Brokaw, the publicist, will hopefully shed light on the Campbell’s level of competence when he signed the will.

Why is there so much fuss over it?

Well, the disputed 2006 version excludes three of Campbell’s eight children (all from his second wife). Now, they want to prove their dad wasn’t in a sound state of mind when he made the changes.

Another factor complicating things is that Glen Campbell’s fourth wife, Kimberly, was the one to file the new will. However, she’s been through legal fights with some of his children in the past.

In 2016, she lost court battle with Campbell’s eldest children who were claiming she was denying them from visitation with their ailing father. In fact, the battle even lead to the passage of a new law, aptly named the Campbell/Falk Act. It prevents a legally appointed guardian from stopping family members and loved ones from visiting or maintaining contact with a person that’s been debilitated by dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease, and more.

With an estate worth $50 million on the line, this battle will probably get even more messy with time…
