Ashley Judd and Wynonna Judd, late Naomi Judd’s daughters, always do their best to carry on the family legacy. Many people were shocked when they heard about Naomi Judd’s untimely death. Her daughters were not included in her will, and the eldest is understandably upset.

According to the Daily Mail, Naomi Judd’s decision to name husband Larry Strickland executor of her will without including her daughters, Wynonna and Ashley, allegedly upsets her eldest child. Wynonna aims to contest the will, believing she is entitled to a portion of her mother’s $25 million estate.

“With Wynonna, her mother leaving all of her wealth to Larry sticks in her craw. Her feeling is Naomi built her fortune at least partially on the back of Wynonna’s own hard work.”

“She was the one who was the lead singer of The Judds dating back to the 1980s and took Naomi from working as a nurse to being a star. It was Wynonna’s amazing voice that pushed them over the top.”

The country singer, who tragically took her own life on April 30th, and her daughter’s band, The Judds, won five Grammys, nine Country Music Association Awards, eight Billboard Music Awards, and sold over 20 million albums over their career. Although the “Why Not Me” singer is apparently unhappy with how Naomi’s assets are being distributed, her half-sister Ashley is said to have followed her mother’s wishes.

“Ashley Judd has no problem with her late mother Naomi leaving her entire $25 million fortune to her second husband Larry Strickland. With Ashley it’s never really been about the money.”

While excluding her children from her will is not uncommon, legal experts told the outlet that it appears to be a slight to both Wynonna and Ashley. “It is common to name the spouse as the executor of a will. But leaving out her daughters seems pointed, like a purposeful act on Naomi’s part,” attorney Holly Davis said.

The singer requested in her will that Strickland have “full authority and discretion” over any property that is an asset to her estate “without the approval of any court” or permission from any estate beneficiary. Experts say Strickland has the authority to “set up an inheritance in line with what he believes Naomi would have wanted for the children.”

Both daughters have spoken out about their mother’s untimely death, but neither has spoken out about the will. Let’s see what happens. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
