The Queen of soul, Aretha Franklin, passed away on August 16, 2018 at age 76. It’s now being reported that Franklin passed away with almost $1 million in uncashed checks. 

 

According to reports, “an inventory following her death found that Franklin had a check for $702,711.90 from Sound Exchange and Screen Writers Guild as well as uncashed checks to her publishing company, Springtime Publishing, from EMI, BMI, Carlin Music and Feel Good Films in the amount of $285,944.27. In total, $988,656.17 in uncashed checks were found.”

 

Franklin passed away leaving four sons behind. If the discovery is in fact true, it would change the distribution of Franklin’s assets.
