Aretha Franklin died without a will or trust for her reported $80 million estate. According to the Detroit Free Press,  her four children filed a document on Tuesday listing themselves as  interested parties. Meanwhile, Franklin's niece Sabrina Owens asked the  court to appoint her as personal representative of the estate. 

According  to Michigan law, the assets of an unmarried person who dies without a  will are divided equally among any children. Attorney Don Wilson, who  represented Franklin for 28 years, says he repeatedly told her to create  a trust. "Nobody likes to give careful thought to their own demise," he  notes. Franklin died from pancreatic cancer on August 16. She was 76.
