Naomi requested that he have “full authority and discretion” over any property “without the approval of any court” or permission from any beneficiary of the estate. Strickland will be given “reasonable compensation” for services, as well as reimbursement for “reasonable expenses.” The will was signed by witnesses, who said Naomi was of “sound mind and body,” when she documented her wishes.
The will was prepared in 2017, nearly five years before Naomi died by suicide, on April 30.
Radar Online reports that Wynonna is “upset” that she was excluded, because she formed one-half of the duo, The Judds, with Naomi and “believes she was a major force behind her mother’s success.”
However, reps for Wynonna and Ashley, did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
Naomi’s estate is estimated to be worth $25 million.
