Before his death earlier this year, Glen Campbell moved to specifically exclude three of his eight children from his will.

According to the Tennessean, the country legend opted to keep his daughter Kelli and sons William and Wesley from benefiting from his estate. The information is listed in his will, which he created in 2006. A hearing on the contents of the will is now scheduled for Jan. 18.

It’s unclear what Campbell’s reasonings were for the decision, but it once again highlights the public rift between his family members. Campbell’s oldest children, Debby and Travis, won a legal battle against Glen’s third wife, Kim, in 2016. They alleged that Kim denied them clearance to visit their father for over a year while he battled Alzheimer’s disease.

This year, Tennessee Governor Haslam signed the Campbell/Falk Act into law, which overrules a state law that allowed conservators to preside over sole visitation rights for those with disabilities and diseases like Alzheimer’s.

Glen Campbell passed away on Aug. 8, 2017 at the age of 81 after a battle with Alzheimer’s disease. The discovery and progression of the illness was documented in the award-winning 2014 film Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me. Campbell released his final studio album Adiós just two months before his passing.
