The late Glen Campbell left behind a number of things to his family, but three of his children were left out of his personal will according to the records filed with the Davidson Probate Court based in Nashville.

Campbell passed away on August 8, 2017, at the age of 81 after battling Alzheimer’s Disease for several years. He was survived by his wife, Kim, and his eight children. The Tennessean reports that the three kids kept out of the estate were from Campbell’s second marriage to wife Billie Jean Nunley, which includes their daughter, Kelli, and their two sons, William Travis and Wesley Kane.

With Kim bearing the title of executor to the estate, she will lead to divide the $50 million amount between the rest of the family included on the will. Children from Campbell’s other marriages, including Ashley, Debby, Shannon, Dillon and Nicklaus, were included in the legal documents, which were last updated back in 2006.

Another shocking part of the will to fans of Campbell was the fact that the iconic country star didn’t technically own any property in Nashville, but rather he kept real estate in other cities outside of the music hub.

The first hearing regarding the will is expected to be held on January 18, 2018, to negotiate the terms of the document.
