Glen Campbell‘s widow, Kim Campbell, has filed a claim for $506,380 from his estate to cover the medical costs of his fight with Alzheimer’s, legal issues and the construction a large security fence.
According to the Tennessean, Campbell is also requesting $14,246 for an insurance payment that she says was put into his estate instead of a family trust in error. The insurance claim comes from their California property which sustained extensive water damage due to bad plumbing. Kim Campbell is also the trustee of the additional family trust for their Nashville home they moved to once Glen needed full-time care due to his progressing disease.
Glen Campbell passed away last year, but the legal turmoil surrounding his will and estate has been churning for some time. Campbell was married four times and had eight children. His will, written in 2006, excluded his three children from his second marriage. They are currently challenging the will.
Also, Glen Campbell’s two eldest children went into a legal battle after they said that Kim was keeping them from visiting their father as he struggled with his disease. Their riff resulted in the governor of Tennessee enstating the Campbell/Falk Act. This allows friends and family of a person with a disability or a disease like Alzheimer’s to not be held back from keeping in touch with their loved one despite the conservator’s requests.
