Wynonna Judd Reportedly Plans To Contest Naomi’s Will

The singer might contest her late mother’s will as the battle over Naomi’s $25 million estate grows uglier.

Wynonna Judd might contest her late mother’s will as the battle over Naomi’s $25 million estate grows uglier.

A cash-strapped Wynonna Judd may fight her mother’s decision to leave her fortune to husband Larry Strickland, Daily Mail reports.

The British tabloid further said that a rift is reopening between singer Wynonna and her sister, Ashley Judd. The actress reportedly does not want to challenge her late mother’s will.

Wynonna and Ashley recently learned that their mother omitted them altogether from her will, Radar Online reported Monday. Naomi Judd, who committed suicide earlier this year, left her estate only to her second husband, Stickland.

Naomi Judd also appointed Strickland’s brother as an estate co-executor, in the event Strickland dies or otherwise can’t run the estate.

Wynonna Judd also contends that her band The Judds are responsible for her mother’s wealth.

Some attorneys say it’s actually not that rare that a person decides to name their spouse as executor of their estate, instead of their children.

“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 and legal expert Holly Davis told the New York Post.

Naomi Judd’s Daughters Saluted Their Mom After Her Death

Naomi Judd committed suicide this past April by gunshot to the head. Shortly after Naomi Judd’s death, Wynonna and Ashley Judd honored the late matriarch with a highly publicized tribute.

Two months ago, Wynonna Judd admitted to having a terribly hard time dealing with the sudden death of her mother.

“That the pain of losing Mom on 4/30 to suicide is so great,” she posted on Instagram. “I often feel like I’m not ever going to be able to fully accept and surrender to the truth that she left the way she did. This cannot be how The Judds story ends.”

Meanwhile, the news about the deceased Judd’s will comes less than a week after Ashley Judd finally opened up about the tragedy.

Ashley Judd said she, sister Wynonna, and their father are grieving in different ways over Naomi’s suicide. The intimate interview is featured in a recent episode of the Healing With David Kessler podcast.

Ashley Judd added that her sister, father, and she are grieving individually. In doing so, “we’ve been able to completely stick together,” according to People“We can be at the same supper table and recognize … ‘this one’s in anger, this one’s in denial, this one’s in bargaining, this one’s in acceptance, I’m in shock right now.’”

  1. Wynonna Judd, should have if anything as much or MORE MONEY THAN her Mother….suck it up Buttercup, you were always demanding of your mother & also Ashley was always whining she wasn’t treated as.good as.you.
    Let your Mother RIP SHE IS AN angel & your NOT. FAR FROM IT!!

  2. I have a no respect for Ashley Judd how she destroyed been trying to destroy her mothers memory is sinful we all have hard times growing up but I always looked at why Why Wynona and her mother is such a loving family. Two weeks after her death her daughter Ashley is just saying terrible things about her mother I just have no use for people like that

    • “Mom was a brilliant conversationalist … she was a star, she was an underrated songwriter,” Judd said. “And she was someone who suffered from mental illness, you know, and had a lotta trouble getting off the sofa, except to go into town every day to the Cheesecake Factory, where all the staff knew and loved her.”May 12, 2022
      ,.. are you referring to things that Ashley said in her memoir of a number of years ago about her very disturbing childhood, I have met her and I don’t think she made the shit up.

  3. Sorry for your loss.
    Something sounds fishy here. I think her husband and brother has a lot to do with the will. Are you sure it was suicide?

  4. I’m so sorry for the family. Naomi knew what she was doing when she set this all up. Let her rest in peace. Cant believe Wynonna is taking credit for her moms talent. Greed always shows up.
