Aretha Franklin Left No Will or Trust, Says Her Attorney

Aretha Franklin left no will or trust before her death last week, her attorney says, sparking fears that competing claims on her assets may have to be played out in a public courtroom. Her four sons filed a document Tuesday afternoon listing themselves as interested parties in her estate, while Franklin’s niece Sabrina Owens asked the court to appoint her as personal representative of the estate. “I was after her for a number of years to do a trust,” said Los Angeles attorney Don Wilson, who represented Franklin for nearly 30 years. “It would have expedited things and kept them out of probate, and kept things private.” The lack of a will could prompt a court battle over her assets by creditors or extended family members seeking a portion of her estate. “I just hope it doesn’t end up getting so hotly contested,” Wilson said. “Any time they don’t leave a trust or will, there always ends up being a fight.” Separately, at Tuesday night’s Detroit Tigers game, a rainbow appeared over centerfield during a moment of silence as tribute from the Queen of Soul’s hometown.

Harvey Weinstein Sued by Actor Emma Loman Over Alleged Rape at Cannes

It was called his “hunting ground” by Asia Argento—now another woman has accused Harvey Weinstein of raping her at the Cannes film festival in France. German actor Emma Loman has filed a lawsuit against the disgraced movie mogul, accusing him of raping her in 2006. She said she was harassed into a meeting by Weinstein—with his assistant calling her as many as 30 times a day—and was lured to his hotel room to discuss her career. There, she alleges, Weinstein overpowered and raped her. “Fearful both that no one would believe her and the potential retaliation from such a powerful figure, Loman stayed silent,” the lawsuit says. “It was only upon the late 2017 revelation of the scope of Weinstein’s wrongful actions… that Loman felt safe coming forward to seek redress for Weinstein’s rape of her.” Weinstein has been accused by dozens of women of numerous incidents of sexual misconduct.
