Aretha Franklin was ill for years, but according to TMZ, the late singer never made a will.  

Files notate that Franklin died intestate, meaning she had no will at the time of her death.

The soulstress had four sons; thus, according to Michigan law, her estate will be equally divided among them as they are her surviving children.

Hollywood’s go-to site for celebrity worth,, states Franklin’s net worth is an estimated $80 million.

Services will be held for the Queen of Soul over several days next week – beginning with an open casket memorial at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Franklin’s beloved Detroit. A private funeral service for family and friends will be held at the Greater Grace Temple on August 31.
