Desde la muerte del cantante en 2006, Los activos de la difunta estrella han estado en el centro de demandas en curso que involucran a sus hijos., una ex pareja romántica y varios administradores.
The legal woes have even delayed a charitable plan that could distribute millions of dollars through educational scholarships for underprivileged children in South Carolina and Georgia. That goal was so dear to Brown that he made it the centerpiece of his will, Los New York Times reported on Thursday.
sin embargo, it’s looking like the ongoing battle will finally reach an end for everyone involved.
Según el outlet, a settlement reached last Friday, will resolve most of the outstanding litigation. A statement from Brown’s children and the estate’s administrator, Russell L. Bauknight, revealed it was made after two months of “lengthy mediation discussions.” The agreement will also “fulfill Mr. Brown’s noble estate plan to fund scholarships.”
Marc Toberoff, a lawyer for nine of Brown’s heirs – five children, the estate of another child and three grandchildren – told the outlet “the matter has been settled.”
The outlet noted that neither Bauknight, Toberoff nor anyone else involved in the settlement negotiations provided further details.
marrón, recognized as the “Godfather of Soul,” falleció on Christmas Day 2006 a la edad 73. His cause of death was listed as heart failure.
Brown was renowned for hundreds of iconic musical works including hits like “I Feel Good” y “A Man’s World,” and was known around the world for his flashy performances and dynamic stage presence. But years of drug problems and financial mismanagement caused his estate to dwindle.
More than a dozen lawsuits have been filed over the years by people trying to lay claim to what’s left, which courts have estimated to be worth anything from $ 5 million to more than $ 100 millón.
His dying wish was to create an “I Feel Good” trust that would use his music royalties to fund educational expenses for children.
